We believe that Mobile Media Learning is still in its infancy. The examples included here are only the beginning of a learning ecology that includes adventures, activism, collaboration, and moments of inspiration fostered by mobile, personal, collective, and increasingly affordable tools.
As a reader of this book, you are on the cutting edge of design for learning using mobile technologies — you now know what we know. You have the tools that we have. Our best advice is now yours to use as a starting point.
That means two things —
First, we consider you our colleague and we would love to know what you are up to. Please stay in touch. If you try a design or a jam, contact any of the editors or authors and share your experiences with us. (Just run a search online for any of us). We aim to collectively gather stories, accounts, and lessons so that we can more readily think of learning as mobile.
Second, we gladly turned down three other publishing houses in order to offer you the opportunity to add to this book. ETC press allows us to add chapters and do versioning of the book with relative ease. If you have an experience that adds to the scope of this work, and are willing to invest the time to write and revise, we would like to add your chapter to the book for future buyers to enjoy. Use chapter two as a guide for writing and shaping your chapter and send it to Seann.
Our next planned project is a follow–up to this work and your stories that attempts to organize and draw common planning and design principles across cases. Look for Mobile Media Design in the coming years.
For now though, probably have some mobile designing to do, we’ll leave you to it.
All the best,
