The journey of writing a book is, not surprisingly, long and laborious. When we started our research and writing, we felt well prepared as a team of writers and experts in our fields with cross-disciplinary perspectives. We were excited to fill a void we saw in the field: take the world a step closer to having a theory of mobile learning and create a resource for teachers and developers in the process.
While we trusted our own experience and skills, we knew we'd also rely on others to complete this book. Reviewers, artists, editors, educators, and interviewees give this book a level of credibility and expertise we alone couldn't have. We derived so much value from the folks listed here. We are deeply grateful for the help, insight and feedback we received along the way. This truly shaped this book into what you hold before you.
First and foremost, we are grateful to Jim and Ann Goodnight for supporting us in this project, and for their generous support of education (mobile and otherwise). We are so appreciative of the leadership and guidance provided by Armistead Sapp. We are thankful for the amazing group of reviewers who were candid and helpful with their feedback: Elliot Inman, Robert Epler, Kristin Hoffmann, and Tim McBride.
We are so grateful for the artwork from the incomparable duo, Tammi Kay George and Lisa Morton, who came up with the cover for the book and so many creative renderings of concepts based on our confusing notes. Thank you so much for the drawings ...
