At The Digital Educational Content Marketplaces conference (DECOM 2008), which took place in Sestri Levante, Italy, at the end of October, one of the speakers – Adam Black, of Pearson Education – in endorsing the move towards mobile learning, commented that, every second, three babies are born somewhere in the world whereas, in the same time, 38 mobile devices are sold. He added: “Humans are obviously more adept at making mobile devices than babies!”


Comment: He might think that. I couldn’t possibly comment.
