International Journal of Interactive Mobile Technologies (iJIM)

Call for Papers
Special Issue on
Adaptive Approaches to Mobile Learning

Contributions are invited to a special issue of the International Journal of 
Interactive Mobile
Technologies (iJIM) conforming to the theme of Adaptive Approaches to Mobile 
Learning. The
exponential growth of wireless technology in recent years, increasing 
availability of high bandwidth
network infrastructures, advances in mobile technologies and the popularity of 
handheld devices have
opened up new accessibility opportunities for education. The true potential of 
e-learning as "anytime,
anywhere" has finally begun to be realized in the form of m-learning, not only 
for those with
disabilities or those living in remote communities, but also for those who have 
been attending
traditional academia but could benefit from improved collaboration possibilities, 
situated learning
opportunities and contextual learning.
Adaptive scenarios such as the use of multimedia-rich content, design of 
appropriate learning tasks,
and use of collaborative paradigm, have potential to take mobile learning to a 
level where it can
deliver education, at a higher quality than is presently available in a classroom 
surpassing that by incorporating contextual problem scenarios from learners' 
working and social
environments, thereby, enabling collaborative problem-solving in authentic 
environmental contexts,
such as problem themes based on the real entities in the learners' immediate 
This special issue aims to focus on the emerging and innovative design, 
development and implementation
of adaptive approaches to mobile learning. This special issue is intended to 
collate realisable ideas,
inspirations, as well as outreach approaches which have been implemented 
and tested in mobile environment.
Examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Theories and paradigms for adaptive mobile learning
* Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 technologies
* Location-aware adaptivity
* Learner modelling issues in adaptive mobile learning
* Standardization issues in adaptive mobile learning
* Authentic problem solving in adaptive mobile learning
* Collaboration based adaptivity in mobile learning
* Adaptivity through integration of mobile and non-mobile environments
* Nomadic adaptive mobile environments
* Multimedia based adaptivity in mobile learning
* Specific cases of innovation in adaptive mobile learning
* Specific cases of accessibility enhancement through adaptive mobile learning
* Evaluation of adaptive mobile learning technologies
