Advancing Higher Education with Mobile Learning Technologies: Cases, Trends, and Inquiry-Based Methods
Keengwe, Jared, Ed.; Maxfield, Marian B., Ed.
Rapid advancements in technology are creating new opportunities for educators to enhance their classroom techniques with digital learning resources. Once used solely outside of the classroom, smartphones, tablets, and e-readers are becoming common in many school settings.
