Abstract: 
This article discusses the role of technologies that facilitate mobility in demand-driven learning situations. The focus is not on the technologies such as mobile devices per se, but to bring sense to the pedagogical dimensions of learning through such technologies. With all the hype on mobile technologies, there are few frameworks underpinning their educational applications. We propose a framework in which learning can be grounded on proximity of time, tasks, and usage (in terms of relevance); and proximity of peers, experts, appropriate materials, tools, and locality (in terms of access). This article is conceptual in nature and attempts to provide an educational rather than technical perspective on how mobile and wireless technologies can be adopted meaningfully for learning.
