What will learning look like in the future? - Duncan Brown and James Cory-Wright, Training Zone

When smartphones and tablets become one: the use of apps to deliver the training of the future suggests that as well as overcoming possible cost barriers, old attitudes and connectivity issues, objections around screen size will also go away. The smartphone screen is too small for training content whether that’s presented as text and graphics or video but the screen size of the smartphone is still unfinished business. It’s on an upward trend and getting closer to the screen size of the smaller tablets - like the ‘phablet’ which is a smartphone with a screen that’s 'an intermediate size between that of a typical smartphone and a tablet computer.' So will the two fully converge and become one to the point where smartphones become the main device for consuming online training? It remains to be seen but at the moment it looks like a distinct possibility and one that may be adopted for just the kind of applications we’ve been examining. http://www.trainingzone.co.uk/feature/technology/what-will-learning-look-future-pt2/189095
