Editorial presents information on the development of wireless and mobile technologies and their influence on education. The use of information technology in education and training has undergone several paradigm shifts over the last three decades. Very recently the notions of e-learning (learning supported by digital electronic tools and media) and m-learning (learning using mobile devices and wireless transmission) have emerged. These terms are often associated with a simplistic understanding of facilitating learning by delivering learning content. Handheld devices are emerging as one of the most promising technologies for supporting learning and particularly collaborative learning scenarios. These technologies offer the possibility of moving away from the stand-alone computer, thus allowing interaction with several devices and making information accessible through a wireless connection to a server. It also introduces articles published in the special issue of 'Journal of Computer Assisted Learning'. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved).
