Abstract

In 2010 Boise State University launched a three-year mobile-learning initiative to utilize mobile technology in the classroom to facilitate learning. Through courses, programs, and faculty preparation, the initiative’s goals included increasing student engagement in learning, developing digital literacy skills, and producing “technology-mediated innovations in content delivery and creation.”1 Faculty and students participated from a variety of disciplines, including arts, humanities, sciences, business, education, engineering, health sciences, and social science.
