Workplaces need to remember that no matter what, employees are people. That means they come with their own set of needs, including needs for connectedness and belonging (as we are all social animals). Yet in today’s world, we often get that connection through online technologies — at least our personal lives. What about in work? This book explores different aspects of human connectedness — be it through teams (virtual or face-to-face) or individuals (what do you do with a new employee anyhow?) The Mobile Learning Edge reminds us that we need others — no one is an island, especially when it comes to meaningful and productive work. I’m not entirely sure why someone would publish a book on mobile learning tools and technologies. While this book does talk about trends and strategies, it also does highlight certain… well, tools and technologies that are mobile solutions for team management and so on. It’s sort of nice to have this all in one place, but if you are truly researching how to develop your team through mobile technologies, you are probably also quite web-savvy, and a few searches for the relevant topics will bring up more information with a variety of opinions that is more timely and potentially useful. That said, this book does highlight certain aspects such as how to create the business case for mobile learning and managing mobile learning, with some case studies, but I’m thinking that this book may already be out-of-date by the time you read this review. It may be a good starting place, but it’s not going to be your mobile learning bible anytime soon.
