Mobile learning (mlearning) is changing the pedagogical landscape of traditional teaching. The myriad of constantly evolving mobile devices are providing new affordances which are attracting the attention of educators around the globe. Many educators may be excited at these new affordances to learning, others are more apprehensive of this technological intrusion on traditional practices. In this paper, the researchers share the results of a self-report survey that provides evidence of what educators reported they would like to receive training on for mlearning initiatives. These data suggest current trends in mlearning and the technological abilities of educators implementing mlearning in their classrooms. This information, gathered from across 12 diverse US States, is pertinent to a broad spectrum of scholars and practitioners, but most importantly, it is relevant to teacher educators as they prepare future teachers to teach using mobile devices.
