I was invited to speak on the potential and power of mobile technologies and the impact they have had and will have on learning in the workplace.

The proliferation of powerful mobile devices in the past 24 months, combined with a savvy population of users has led to a change in the way we use information. Many of us now expect to be able to read and interact on the move using smart devices like the iPhone and Android phones, or the iPad. At the same time, e-books and readers allow us to carry thousands of books in one device. Potentially this could be a great moment for extending learning – but what is the role of the L&D function in all this?

Here are the slides from the presentation I gave.

  1. Hello James,
    Such a great picture on slide eight with all the tablets in that classroom.
    Unfortunately the Flickr link does not seem to be right.
    Can you help me find the original?

    1. Hi Willem

      The Flickr link is correct, however the photographer has closed their Flickr account so the original photograph is now no longer available and the link no longer works.
