Abstract

This paper suggests that integration of students’ own everyday technology in educational activities is a promising theme for development of mobile learning. As students bring technology, which they already use for their everyday communication, information management and networking, educators have the possibility to explore this networked distributed platform for pedagogical purposes. We report on a study where mobile phones and Wikis were involved in higher education. However, this paper does not suggest using Wikis or mobile phones in particular. It suggests looking into the mobile and ubiquitously available technologies that the students already have and are familiar with, and integrating these into the activities in higher education.
