Mobile Computing – The horizon report


The Horizon report describes the continuing work of the New Media Consortium’s Horizon Project, a qualitative research project established in 2002 that identifies and describes emerging technologies likely to have a large impact on teaching, learning, or creative inquiry in college and university campuses within the next five years.  Mobile Computing is providing on-the-go learning for students whether via smart phones, netbooks, laptops, or the wide range of other devices to access the Internet using cellular-based portable hotspots and mobile broadband cards.  Mobile computing has become an indispensable part of day-to-day life in the workforce, and a key driver is the increasing ease and speed with which it is possible to access the Internet from virtually anywhere in the world.

Mobile computing allows the learner to customise and personalise their learning activities to suit their own learning style, working strategies and abilities.
