At mLearnCon 2012, Jason Calacanis, Internet entrepreneur, founder of and the Open Angel Forum, creator of the LAUNCH Conference, and cofounder of, delivered the June 30, 2012 keynote address at mLearnCon on “Ten Mobile Learning Startups to Watch.” Calacanis shared his insights into the reasons why the mobile learning market is hot, and afterward Karen Hyder and Mike Sloat asked him about the future of eLearning and education.

Jason responded to three specific questions:

  • What do you see as the course that learning will take in the next two decades?
  • Is technology disintermediating education?
  • What are the upsides of social, mobile, and context-aware technology for learning?
