The authors first review theories of learning in an attempt to identify the closeness of mobile learning to traditional notions of learning (like constructivist learning, problem-based learning etc) and to decide how practices of learning can be translated for mobile environments. They then review cases of implementation of mobile learning to elements of success and to abstract them into more general success criteria. Excellent read for organisations and teachers who want to take advantage of mobile technologies to enhance their students’ learning experiences.View
