Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

When considering mobile learning in the international arena, the definition of mobile learning takes on broader meaning. First world countries have advantages such as infrastructure, connectivity, and technology which make mobile learning readily available. In 2nd and 3rd world countries; cost, connectivity, availability of mobile devices, bandwidth, and technology transfer restrictions become major issues. All can be overcome if a few adjustments in curriculum development and delivery method are made. Local culture, needs and resources must be considered, language barriers can be overcome, and cost can be mediated. All is possible with an understanding of new technology and methodology. This session will discuss all these things in detail and provide information on recent studies done that deal with needs and infrastructure in the international arena, devices which work best, and techniques for presenting course content.
