While true, that students will be interested in using their mobile device for online social interaction, mobile devices offer so much more. Mobile Learning is not about Social Media. In fact, it has very little to do with Mobile Learning. While some students may form study groups on Facebook or chat about projects over Instagram and this does represent a form of online sharing, Mobile Learning is much more than this.
And in many cases students have already learned this lesson and its the teachers and the schools who need to wake up to the possibilities.
If we teach the students in the world they live in, we have a better chance to improve their ability. If students are interested in what they are doing, then they will not be distracted.
