Abstract -
The incorporation of mobile technology into teaching and learning environments has the potential to be transformative - to alter the ways in which we engage our students and prepare them to be life-long learners. This research paper outlines a plan that will engage the campus in innovative strategies for supporting student learning at Universities and will lay a foundation for us to become a leader in implementation and assessment of mobile-learning environments in higher education.
