The book provides new conceptual frameworks to understand good practice in the field of mobile learning. The book fills a gap in the current literature by drawing on examples of best practice from leading schools in the United States, Canada and Australia.
The author visited thirty educational sites and interviewed over 100 eminent teachers, principals, district superintendents and academics in the three aforementioned countries to study the implementation of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets in teaching and learning.
