Report on Children's Mobile Learning

This report entitled, Pockets of Potential: Using Mobile Technologies to Promote Children’s Learning, was recently forwarded to me. I've looked through it, and it does site several examples of mobile learning developments in museums. The report seems to do a great job of justifying the significance of mobile learning for today's children. Here is the report itself.

NPR: Interactive Games in Museums

This Story from NPR was just forwarded to me, and it's great! It's a short piece on the role that interactive games could be playing in museums. The piece interviews Jane McGonigal from the Institute For The Future - a place where I actually used to work myself. In any case, it's definitely not a stretch to imagine mobile phones as the center of these interactive museum games.
