Users of wireless technology are contextual learners. Wireless users learn from instant-and-anywhere feedback supporting informal roles of youth and adults or formal roles of students and employees. Just as learning contexts may be distinguished by kinds of wireless feedback, wireless users can also be differentiated into kinds of contextual learners who use different kinds of wireless technologies. Hence, we shall delineate how wireless services support learning contexts and technologies differentiate contextual learners.

Keywords: wireless technology; mobile technology; early adopters of new technology; contextual learning
