Mark A.M. Kramer (MAMK) is an early adopter and informed critic of mobile information and communications technologies. He served in the US Air Force as a Surgical Technician and Combat Field Medic while completing his bachelorís degree in World Classical Literature and Anthropology at Antioch University in Yellow Springs, Ohio. He continued his studies in Vienna, Austria, by completing his Masterís degree in International Relations at Webster University. Currently, Mark is teaching in Salzburg and conducting his doctoral research within the general field of e-learning, concentrating on applying mobile technologies to enhance personal and cooperative learning communities.

Mark's long-term goal is to apply his medical background and anthropological field-experience to help develop mobile ICT solutions and infrastructure to assist medical & humanitarian staff located in geographically and politically (democratically) challenged regions.

I'm an e-learning specialist and have been in the Faculty of Education at the University of Plymouth since 1998. My main research interests are Web 2.0 tools but recently I have been interested in mobile technologies for learning. My website is at htt://www2.plymouth.ac.uk/distancelearning where there are loads of donwloads of papers, slideshows etc on offer. My blog is called learning with 'e's and is at http://steve-wheeler.blogspot.com - drop in and make a comment or two. I hope to have some interesting conversations and make some new contacts while I'm at Handheld Learning next week.

Hi All

I'm a Network Manager at PEMBEC High School..

We have by other school standards a large 3COM Wireless Network with 270 Wireless laptops and i'm very keen to build on this by adding some handheld Mobile Devices.

I was privillaged to attend a conference at the JJB Stadium in Wigan where David Whyley was speaking and was so impressed by what the learning2go project has setup and achieved i want to emulate some of that here in Wigan/PEMBEC.

I know that my role as Network Manager is only part of the role out and i will push for some talented teachers to get involved with the Heads backing.

I would love to know what some of you think in reagrd to this and if your local to Wigan and have smartphones embedded in your school i would love to have a look one day.

Loads of questions but just 2 for now..

1. How do you control external use of the Internet/Calls
2. Is the best solution a monthly contract

Thanks to you all.
