The way students access information has changed. The focus has shifted towards flexible and accessible methods of communication and interaction. One of the main tools that has facilitated this shift is the mobile phone, allowing access to the Internet, e-mail and SMS. Mobile phones have opened up new possibilities in interacting with students. This session intends to explore the way mobile phones and other input devices can be used to engage students with the learning process.

Following the session the participants will be able to:
• Understand the potential use of mobile phones to enhance learning in H.E.
• Understand what kind of content is suitable for mobile delivery.
• Plan how to implement the use of alternative input devices into their practice.
