    The term mobile learning provides an image of active learning, of moving out into the world beyond the confines of the desk, beyond the classroom, beyond the school. The affordances of mobile, networked digital computers can provide learners with seamless access to and between information systems including data capture facilities and global positioning systems in real world settings. Mobile learning has come to represent a fruitful partnership between innovation in pedagogy and innovation in information and communication technologies. This chapter explores this nexus as it appears in emerging practices of a range of classroom teachers who are working to combine their aspirations for high quality student learning with the affordances of mobile technologies.
