Abstract: This paper provides an overview of both the growth and stages of mobile learning. As the adoption of mobiles in K-12 and higher education continues to grow, this paper highlights the characteristics of a world in which the adoption of mobiles rapidly increases. To further examine the growth, adoption, and implications of the use of mobiles, the paper examines the implications for teaching and learning that mobiles have on teaching and learning in higher education. Finally, the paper highlights a case study on the Mobile Learning Initiative (MLI) at Anderson University (SC) and how it is leading to a transformation of the culture of teaching and learning on its campus.
