Michael Gallagher: mLearning and eLearning in the Humanities

This site discusses trends in elearning and mobile learning, along with posts explicitly discussing the effects of those trends on the learning practices of students and instructional practices of teachers. Much of it revolves around my research on the growing trends towards motion and mobility as made evident in the learning practices of students. The site focuses quite a bit on the UK/EU and Asian perspectives, as that is where much of my research is focused. I also post on practical ways in which teachers can make use of the technology and applications available to them. There is considerable discussion on open learning, OERs, MOOCs, etc and the new literacies and pedagogies that can be used to maximize the impact of these new educational developments.
