Susan Smith Nash asks, "Is mobile learning really doing what it's supposed to be doing?" The answer, of course, depends on what it's supposed to be doing, which Nash characterizes as "engag[ing] in substantive, meaningful learning any time and any place [and] effectively creat[ing] conditions for learning – you're engaged, the content is relevant, you're able to connect it to applications and real-life settings that mean something to you." And tbhey haven't reached this potential, she writes, because of a series of barriers, ranging from non-support for Flash to limited apps, small screens and incompatible forms. She follows this with a list of resources intended to help practitioners improve mobile learning.
