Ubiquitous Learning

Exploring the anywhere/anytime possibilities for learning in the age of digital media

This collection seeks to define the emerging field of "ubiquitous learning," an educational paradigm made possible in part by the omnipresence of digital media, supporting new modes of knowledge creation, communication, and access. As new media empower practically anyone to produce and disseminate knowledge, learning can now occur at any time and any place. The essays in this volume present key concepts, contextual factors, and current practices in this new field.

"This book taps directly into seismic shifts occurring in what it means to go about one's everyday life when access to information and ideas are so readily at hand. The contributors move well beyond the speculative to afford readers a rich range of substantive definitions and concrete examples of ubiquitous learning."--Michele Knobel, coauthor of New Literacies: Changing Knowledge and Classroom Learning
