dc.description.abstract In the construction of future mobile – or ubiquitous – learning environments, the concept of mobile learning is central. As Sharples et al. (2005) analyse in their theoretical framework, learners adapt the available technology in their learning and communication. The development of mobile technology thus inevitably leads to the use of portable devices in learning. The way learners use mobile technology in the future is hard to predict. However, there is certainly space for smart educational applications, which have been designed in terms of educational objectives and the available mobile technology. The paradigm shift in learning has been substantial in the last ten years. We have moved from a magistro-centric way of controlled class-room teaching towards a mentored, individually supported learning process. The fast change in technologies has been one of the key drivers in changing learning – the way and pace we communicate and gather information has changed dramatically. On the other hand, the need to update one’s professional knowledge has become a crucial factor in keeping up with the competitiveness in global marketplace - more and more people need to be trained constantly to keep up with the needs of the work life. en
