Call For Papers

mLearn was the first conference on Mobile Learning and is widely recognised as the premiere international conference on learning with mobile technologies and learning across contexts. Each year, it attracts a great number of participants from more than 60 countries representing all continents, and acts as a forum for knowledge sharing and transfer across cultures.
 
The past mLearn conferences were held in the UK, Italy, Australia, South Africa, Canada, the USA, and Malta ( http://www.iamlearn.org/resources/). It is the first time that mLearn comes to East Asia. This tenth annual conference will be hosted by Beijing Normal University (http://www.bnu.edu.cn/eng/) in collaboration with IAMLearn – the International Association for Mobile Learning (http://www.iamlearn.org/).
