Mobile Devices and Types of Learning

There is a theme going on here.  More on Mobile Learning:

Behaviorism: Quick feedback or reinforcement can be facilitated through mobile devices.

Constructivism: Enable immersive experiences such as those provided by simulations or games.

Situated learning: Learners can take mobile devices into authentic learning environments or “context-aware” environments, such as specially equipped museums

Collaborative learning: Provide a handy additional means of communication and a portable means of electronic information gathering and sharing.

Informal/lifelong learning: Accompany users in their everyday experiences and become a convenient source of information or means of communication that assists with learning.

Support/coordination: Provide just-in-time access to learning resources, news, information, planners, address books, calculators, and so forth.
