Formatted Abstract/Summary
As more universities, colleges, and schools adopt m-learning, concerns have been voiced regarding the emergence of unethical behavior. This paper examines a range of ethical issues and analyzes the reasons for them. A framework for an ethical approach to m-learning is put forward, in which harm minimization is balanced with both the need to prepare students for living in a mobile world and the benefits of an approach to learning that has advantages for students from diverse backgrounds. A case is made for the adoption of an ethic of responsibility by educators, administrators, and students.
