What is Mobile Communication

Handbook of Research on Enterprise 2.0: Technological, Social, and Organizational Dimensions
We understand by mobile communication as the use of technology that allows us to communicate with others in different locations without the use of cables. Mobile communication makes our life easier, saves time and effort.

In a society that is clearly influenced by new technology, new advances in mobile technology have yielded important changes in the way users interact with information systems and contextual information. There is a need to provide technological solutions that help users communicate more easily. In this chapter, a novel solution that makes it easier for the elderly to use mobile phones is proposed. The senior population is rapidly growing; they represent 16-17% of the total population in developed countries. The use of a mobile device presents two large obstacles for this group: problems from disabilities due to age and problems associated with the lack of familiarity with mobile technology. The combined use of contactless technologies such as NFC and MiFARE eliminates the barriers encountered by older individuals. These technologies make it possible to use basic services of a mobile telephone, such as placing a call or sending a message, in a way that is easy, user friendly, and intuitive. The CommunicaME system makes it possible to place a call or send a SMS on a mobile by simply moving it closer to a contactless tag. The use of contactless technologies helps the user to carry out their daily tasks, and it also provides a new method of mobile communication that is both quick and secure. The results obtained with the defined and implemented prototype are presented in this chapter.

Mobile Technologies Support Effective Learning
Is characterized by convenience, rapidness, multifunction, and real time access, and reflects the spirit of the moment enabled by wireless and mobile telecommunication technologies and devices (Hui-YI & Ling- Yin, 2010). M-Learning is defined as being just-in-time, situated learning, mediated through digital technology in response to the needs of the user ( Traxler, 2009 ). M-learning is different from other forms of technology-supported learning in the way it can mediate and facilitate learning experiences ( Peters, 2009 ). The ability to learn in one's own context when on the move in time and space is arguably the central learning affordance of mobile technologies.
