Mobile learning is just one of the areas covered by the broader topic of mobile computing.

Taking Ontario Mobile report coverLast year, I was involved in a research group that produced a 400-plus-page report called “Taking Ontario Mobile” (TOM) on the opportunities for mobile computing in the province of Ontario, Canada. I helped research and write the section of the report on mobile learning, and participated in meetings on the overall research. Dr. Sandra Diamond and Dr. Vera Roberts of the Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCADU) led the project.

The report may be useful to anyone in government in other jurisdictions who are contemplating a study of this type or who are looking at increasing the use of mobile in their geographical area.

Here are the main topics in the report:

  • Why take Ontario Mobile?
  • Learning in a Mobile Ontario
  • Health in a Mobile Ontario
  • M-Government in Mobile Ontario
  • Commerce and Finance in a Mobile Ontario
  • Entertainment in a Mobile Ontario
  • Inclusion in a Mobile Ontario
  • Ontario’s Mobile-industry capacity
  • Action plan for a Mobile Ontario

While the TOM report is about Ontario, Canada, there are reviews of mobile computing in other jurisdictions, including Sweden, Finland, South Korea, Brazil, Russia, and the state of Illinois that may be of interest.
