This Special Issue, “Mobile Learning”, addresses the increasing popularity of mobile devices and their potential for developing learning. As mobile technologies are constantly changing and increased capabilities rapidly developing, it is timely to consider the technical and practical issues in implementing learning applications for mobile devices. In a changing landscape in which mobile device ownership rivals fixed PCs, it is critical that we understand and study more about their capability in education.

As the GKJF’s response to the rapid development of digital culture(s) and reflecting its open, democratic attitude towards use of knowledge resources, the Yearbook is now published as an online, open-access, peer-reviewed journal.
In the more than ten years since Marnina Gonick directly challenged the field by asking, “Are queer girls, girls?” (2006: 122), girls’ studies has grown into a formidable, expansive, and increasingly recognized area of academic discourse. Yet, while one might not characterize the “pairing of the words queer and girl” as “virtually unthinkable” in the scholarship today, as Susan Driver (2007: 28) found it then, there remains a distressing inability to dislodge girlhood from its (hetero)normative grounds.
