The prosperous development of wireless communication and sensor technologies has attracted the attention of researchers from both computer and education fields. Various investigations have been made for applying the new technologies to education purposes, such that more active and adaptive learning activities can be conducted in the real world. Nowadays, ubiquitous learning (u-learning) has become a popular trend of education all over the world, and hence it is worth reviewing the potential issues concerning the use of u-computing technologies in education, which could be helpful to the researchers who are interested in the investigation of mobile and ubiquitous learning.
