Abstract

Text messaging, or Short Message Service (SMS), and Multimedia Messaging, or Multimedia Message Service (MMS) have enjoyed phenomenal success in many Asian countries. The youths are particularly enamored with this wireless service because it allows them to communicate with friends, anytime anywhere. The ubiquity of cellular phones has attracted educators to examine its affordances for mobile learning and instruction. This presentation describes mobile learning events using text messaging and multimedia messaging as a learning approach to engage learners in authentic learning, discusses some learning outcomes, and suggestions for future implementations.
