Stakeholder, corporate, and policy perspectives

Those who work to promote the use of mobile tools for teaching and learning do so in a complex environment. There are many different stakeholders who can have a profound influence over the acceptance and support of such innovations. To what extent these stakeholders choose to either promote or constrain mobile learning depends on their own perspectives, driven by financial, political or social considerations. As policy is debated, formulated, applied and interpreted by these stakeholders, their differing perspectives may have positive or negative effects on policy and its progress towards its intended goals.
