Jan Herrington, Anthony Herrington, Jessica Mantei, Ian Olney and Brian
Ferry (editors), _New Technologies, New Pedagogies: Mobile learning In
Higher Education_, Faculty of Education, University of Wollongong, 2009,
138p. ISBN: 978-1-74128-169-9




While mobile technologies such as mobile phones, personal digital
assistants (PDAs) and digital music players (mp3 players) have permeated
popular culture, they have not found widespread acceptance as
pedagogical tools in higher education.


The purpose of this e-book is to explore the use of mobile devices in
learning in higher education, and to provide examples of good pedagogy.
We are sure that the rich variety of examples of mobile learning found
in this book will provide the reader with the inspiration to teach their
own subjects and courses in ways that employ mobile devices in authentic
and creative ways. This book is made up of a collection of double blind
peer-reviewed chapters written by participants in the project New
technologies, new pedagogies: Using mobile technologies to develop new
ways of teaching and learning.


The book begins with an introductory chapter that describes the overall
project, its aims and methods. The second chapter describes the
professional development process that was used for the teacher
participants involved in the project. This is followed by 10 chapters,
each describing a mobile learning pedagogy that was employed in the
context of a subject area within a Faculty of Education. The final
chapter presents guidelines or design principles for the use of mobile
learning in higher education learning environments.


We wish to acknowledge the support provided for the project on which
this book is based by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council, an
initiative of the Australian Government Department of Education,
Employment and Workplace Relations. This research was also funded by
generous support from the Office of Teaching and Learning at the
University of Wollongong. Jan Herrington, Anthony Herrington, Jessica
