Hi Leonard,

I’ve been enjoying your blog for quite a while! I’m looking for innovative people who think along similarly innovative lines to you, but are based in Europe, for a Vodafone meeting on implementing m-learning for kids on how to use phones in a safe and ethical way. I wonder if you have any suggestions on who to invite?

Thanks and all the best,

Hi Leonard,
A very enlightening blog. My compliments to win the coveted award.
I am trying to experiment with educational delivery through an approach of combining industry knowledge with learning for continuing education, in life long learning context. I am proposing a platform to enable learning through multiple sources in a convergent form, by ensuring that technology like mobile and rich media become an enabler to reach out to the target audience to create unique engaging and learning experience.
Just in Time, Just what is needed Learning.
Anytime, Anywhere learning!

Would like to connect and explore possibilities of sharing experiences. I am based in Delhi, India and an exploring alliances for R&D and applications on above.

Hi Leonard,
A researcher in the field of transliteracy directed me to your site. I’m trying to develop an awareness of the potential for mobile learning to aid literacy teaching and the spread of multi-language stories across Africa (where there is a dearth of books, particularly books in childrens’ home languages).To do this I wrote a Mobile Literacy for Africa Manifesto for a South African literary group:http://alexsmith.book.co.za/blog/2008/07/19/mobile-literacy-for-africa-manifesto-%e2%80%93-start-the-revolution-today-towards-making-africa-a-superpower/
I would really like to start a mobile literacy learning project (there is a particular village in Uganda that I have connections with), but I’m uncertain about how best to go about it. I thought perhaps you might be able to give me some suggestions.
Very best regards,
