About this book

This book focuses on teaching and learning with mobile technologies, with a particular emphasis on school and teacher education contexts. It explains a robust, highly-acclaimed contemporary mobile pedagogical framework (iPAC) that focuses on three distinct mobile pedagogies: personalisation, authenticity and collaboration. The book shows how mobile pedagogical practice can benefit from use of this framework. It offers numerous cutting-edge research resources and examples that supplement theoretical discussions. It considers directions for future research and practice. Readers will gain insights into the potential of current and emerging learning technologies in school and teacher education.
