The International Mobile Learning Festival (IMLF) is an initiative that promotes adoption of mobile and other emerging learning technologies (e.g., VR, 3D printing, holographic, wearables) in education, with focus on learning-centred practices, learning sciences, STEM integration and new literacies development across all levels of schooling and higher education.

Tertiary and secondary school teachers, education policy makers, researchers, education publishers and designers, research students, learning technology developers and human capital agencies are all encouraged to engage with colleagues at the IMLF Network. Your participation will contribute to the discussion and exploration of the most important developments in mobile learning and emerging learning technologies and paradigms.

So far, the IMLF programme committee members organised 4 international conferences, attracting hundreds of scholars and teacher to attend and present outcomes of their practices and studies. These resulted in a number of high impact publications, such as the Springer edited book titled “Mobile Learning Theories and Applications” that attracted total download exceeding 19,000 (see: https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-981-10-0027-0 for more information).

Recently, the IMLF joined the MTech (Mobile Technologies for Transformative and Inclusive Teaching) project. While Dr Daniel Churchill continues to serve as the Chair of the IMLF, he has joined Dr Mark Pegrum and his colleagues on the MTech Steering Committee to further research and teacher education-related advancements on mobile learning. Mobile and emerging learning conferences, publication projects and research initiatives are expected to emerge from this venture. Since January 2017 we have been running the MTech Mobile Learning Survey for Teacher Educators as a way of obtaining a global snapshot of teacher education practices with mobile technologies. If you are involved in teacher education and have not yet completed the survey, we would encourage you to do so at:

Please feel free to pass on the survey link to any colleagues at your institution or elsewhere who work in, or are interested in, teacher education with mobile devices. The IMLF members are very excited to be involved in this ground-breaking global project, and look forward to your participation in the survey and, hopefully, future MTech conferences as well! The next, 5th IMLF conference is projected to be held in Singapore in 2018. More information about this will be available soon.
