Using web-radio in mobile-learning

Mauro Coccoli


The diffusion of modern mobile devices and applications coupled with the pervasive use of social network services and communications tools, are dramatically changing the way people work, live and learn. In this perspective, this work will discuss an innovative proposal, to be considered as a new paradigm in mobile learning. In particular, we present the use of a Web-radio channel as an educational tool in a mobile-learning environment. Such a medium has unique characteristics of an interactive tool and, furthermore, interaction among users can be enabled by the integration with social networking. Therefore, given the special characteristics of such a medium, it is quite natural to design educational activities relying on social networking, which can be implemented in a mobile environment, according to a novel Web-radio social networking mobile education model.
