Mobile learning is not pervasive in higher education and yet its potential is enormous. This paper describes a project to instigate mobile learning using a whole-of-school approach to technological literacy and professional learning among academic staff.
The project involves supporting every academic in the School to use an iPhone or iPodTouch in their professional lives, and to research their use of the device in pedagogical contexts.
The paper describes the planning process together with the professional development initiatives to be implemented and issues associated with the acquisition and use of mobile phones in professional contexts.
