    Abstract

    Editors’ Note: This chapter explores the potential of mobile education
    within the context of elearning. Portable devices can help bring into education elements of physical mobility that do not exist as much in classroom settings, thus reconnecting with a more natural state of being. Wireless sensors, cloud computing, digital publishing, and educational interactivity offer new pedagogic models of m-learning via online reference tools, curriculum material, external research, and strategic learning. Interesting trends to watch include the eschoolbag, whereby digital textbooks replace all print-based content (as mandated for elementary schools in the Republic of Korea by 2014). Challenges also arise in schools of rural inclusion, protection against cheating and cyberbullying, and enforcement of appropriate behaviour.
