“A Is for App: How Smartphones, Handheld Computers Sparked an Educational Revolution,” by Anya Kamenetz

“The new connectedness isn’t just for the rich. Mobile adoption is happening faster worldwide than that of color TV a half-century ago. Mobile-phone subscribers are expected to hit 5 billion during 2010; more than 2 billion of those live in developing countries, with the fastest growth in Africa. Mobile broadband is forecast to top access from desktop computers within five years.”

Kamenetz is the author of the new book: DIY U: Edupunks, Edupreneurs, and the Coming Transformation of Higher Education
