The International Research Foundation for English Language Education (TIRF) has commissioned a set of 5 papers on Mobile-Assisted Language Learning (MALL) and these are now available on their website. Some are authored by members of IAmLearn. The use of mobile technology is growing exponentially in language education, but it is clear that much more research, project evaluation, and evidence-based analysis are needed. Important questions remain about the efficacy of handheld devices in language learning. The five papers explore the current state of MALL.
