Introduction

The first issue of this publication advocates and explores the increased use of mobile technologies to deliver, enhance and support informal learning and skills development with, for and amongst disenfranchised and disadvantaged people in the developing world. In a rapidly emerging and rapidly changing field, the focus on skills development and lifelong learning is however sometimes only implicit amongst the flurry of other mobile learning activities. The articles of this publication document different aspects of this work and make recommendations. This introduction looks at the bigger picture, the historical and conceptual frameworks.
