mamk_300x287Ubiquitous communication and mixed-reality computing
scenarios are becoming commonplace and are influencing in the way in
which individuals communicate and relate with others and their
surroundings. This talk will present reflections of a nomadic learner
who is examining how existing and emerging information &
communications technologies and services are redefining formal and
informal learning scenarios.  The expected result of this talk will be
to ultimately inspire those in attendance to gain a clearer
perspective on how we are shaping the future of learning.

Mark A.M. Kramer is a mobile research fellow at the University of
Salzburg. At present, Mark is conducting his doctoral study in which
he is examining the present state of how individuals and groups learn
and is attempting to provide an empirically sound forecast of the
future of learning within the time frame of 2015.
