The contexts may be commercial, educational or purely lifestyle, and will often involve characteristics of collaboration, reflection, and articulation, (Herrington & Herrington, 2006)  2.2.Mobile contexts: Use mobile learning in contexts where learners are mobile The mobile learning is situated in contexts where the learner is mobile across topics, space and time. Commuters engage in mobile learning as they travel to and from work accessing different information and engaging in different tasks, returning to these tasks at different times throughout the day. Clear evidence of mobile learning in this project is seen where early career teachers created audio files of teacher wisdom stories for use as a tool for reflection on teaching. 2.3.Explore: Provide time for exploration of mobile technologies While it is apparent that many learner have a greater familiarity with technology than their predecessors it is also clear that some do not. Providing time for learner to explore the Technological features and educational affordances of devices can be done in a variety of ways.
D. Multimedia usage The music, video songs, and other various multimedia applications can be easily shared among different mobile phones using the mobile cloud. E. Mobile commerce It is an application called as m-commerce which is used to do ticket booking, shopping, mobile transaction, mobile messaging via mobile devices.  F. Mobile learning It is also called as m-learning where we could read and access all sorts of books via cloud at a high speed and to learn things
If Cellphones Help Students Learn, Why Don’t We Use Them in the Classroom? Schools are always trying to find new ways to teach students and help them learn, yet one of the greatest learning oppurities and educational tools is sitting right on our door step and few are taking notice of it. In the past, cellphones have been banned from the classroom and are said to be a “distraction”, but many people also think that cellphones should be allowed in the classroom to enhance student learning. Although cellphones can be a distraction for some students, cell phones should be allowed in classrooms, because cellphones can be used to help students with project research, they can take photos of classroom resources to save on paper waste or having to
Since young people have grown up in the technological area, it is assumed they are digitally literate (Jones, Ramanau, Cross, & Healing, 2010). Nonetheless, it does not mean they know how to use technology for learning purposes (Ng, 2012). Many digital natives, people born in the digital age, perform digitally- related tasks every day (Ng, 2012). These tasks include text messaging, downloading and listening to music, watching videos, social networking, and online shopping (Lai & Hong, 2015, Ng, 2012). Hence, they need to be provided with guidance about how to use technology in their academic preparation (Ng,
2015) is the experience afforded by the evolution of educational technologies. It is anywhere, anytime learning enabled by instant, on-demand access to a personalized world filled with the tools and resources we prefer for creating our own knowledge, satisfying our curiosities, collaborating with others, and cultivating experiences. Mobile learning implies adapting and building upon the latest advances of technology, redefining the responsibilities of teachers and students, and blurring the lines between formal and informal

Abstract With the development of information technology and the rapid growth of third generation (3G) mobile technologies; universities, schools, educational institutions and training centers can change the style of learning by using mobile technology to support the process of learning. This is known as “mobile learning” (or m-learning). Some countries around the world are realizing the significance of use mobile learning in education and start to take initiatives to implement the mobile learning system in schools to learn their students and connect them to the world. Most studies focus on developing and designing mobile learning applications without considering the factors that affect on users to accept or reject mobile technology in learning.
EFFECTS TO THE PEOPLE • ADVANTAGES • OUTCOME V. CONCLUSION I. INTRODUCTON The aim of this essay is to fully understand the concept and useful of MOBILE LEARNING to the people who use it to learn through their own mobile phones to educate on how the technology can be helpful in learning the programs or getting the knowledge about the subject of their interest at anytime anywhere they are located with the help of their own devices such as Smart phones and the application that are installed on their own smart phones and mobile phones. II. WHAT IS M-LEARNING OR MOBILE LEARNING M-learning or Mobile learning is all about context and self study.

Advantages of mobile ad-hoc network the rapid development in ad-hoc technology is widely used in portable computing such as mobile phone used to access the web services, laptop, and telephone calls when the user are in travelling. The growth of 4G technology enhances anywhere, anytime, anyhow communication in ad-hoc network. The advantages of an ad-hoc networks include the following: • They provide access to information and services regardless of geographic position. • Mobility allows ad-hoc network created on the fly in any situation where there are multiple wireless devices. • Independence from central networks administration.
