Abstract:This paper introduces a research project that explores the integration of Web2 and wireless mobile devices (WMDs) in tertiary education. It discusses the results of the first mobile learning trial undertaken as part of the research. The paper argues that WMDs can be used to intentionally create disruptive learning environments that facilitate a social constructivist approach to teaching and learning.
