Abstract: Mobile technologies play an important role in contemporary communication. Starting from mobile telephony, mobile devices are increasingly becoming ubiquitous devices for personal information management and communication through different channels. These new devices shape our perception of information, communication, participation, and learning. Moreover, new and smart mobile technology challenges the current views on education and learning more radically then the worldwide web, because different types of techniques and technologies convert in the present mobile technology. This leads to new understandings of connectedness, interaction, participation, and context. This workshop explores different approaches of using mobile technologies in education and to support learning. It focuses on four concepts of mobile learning and how these aspects can be approached by using smart mobile devices. The workshop analyses the concepts of connectedness, interaction, participation, and contextualisation through mobile applications for the Apple iPhone and Android Smartphones. The participants will work and discuss the conversion of Web2.0 and online participation of increasingly mobile learners based on mobile courseware (MobiMoodle) and mobile social software (team.sPod) as well as educational applications on educational field trips and context aware spaces.
