Mobile Learning: An Education Faculty's Accounting

A circulating URL leads to a collection of papers from Education researchers at the University of Wollongong, Australia. It's worth following to the ultimate book.

New technologies, new pedagogies: Mobile learning in higher education. The 2009 text is online in PDF format. From the University's Research Online web site, click the Download button (transfer of 16.2 mb).

Most of the projects described in the text use smartphones or iPods. "Authentic learning" is a theme for the projects directed to teachers and their students as well as to the University's pre-service teachers. Admittedly, the book itself might be a challenge on a smartphone but the projects detailed in it are well suited to the mobile technologies that we're all adopting.
