Combining Mobile Learning & Cloud Computing in Education (MLCCE)
The explosion of technological advances in mobile devices that include, smart phones, iPods, laptops, netbooks, kindles and ipads facilitate our personal, professional and educational activities. The boundaries of formal and informal learning spaces are changing their shape when up-to-date technology tools and resources are employed holding considerable promises for future development and delivery in the education sectors.
The combination of mobile learning and cloud computing is a relatively new concept. The idea of cloud computing - accessing shared resources, software and information that are available on demand from the internet using mobile devices can help mobile learning overcome obstacles related to mobile computing. It is evident that this combination holds considerable promise for future development and delivery in the education sectors.
This special session is intended to attract research papers and case studies showing novel applications in the field of mobile learning and cloud computing. We invite researchers, developers and all those working in this field to submit work under the following topics:
- Mobile learning and Cloud Computing
- Innovative Cloud Applications and Experiences in education
- Pedagogical approaches, models and theories for Mobile Learning
