The world is going mobile, our learners are totally mobile, and educators have the challenge of finding their way in this mRevolution. Join the Learning Technologies SIG for a mobile extravaganza, an online get-together to share apps and their pedagogical use in the language classroom, and to discuss the educational possibilities for mobile devices.
