Mobile learning is one of the hottest trends in education. Schools are beginning to realize the power tablets and smartphones wield in the classroom. Mobile devices like the iPad, the Galaxy Tab and the Google Nexus personalize education and are revolutionizing the classroom experience through the use of apps.
