Mobile%20Pic %20EAsia%202My pick of the top ten mobile ministry related items that I've come across on the web in the past week.

1)  Your Smartphone Is a Better PC than Your PC Ever Was or Will Be

2)  Facebook’s runaway mobile growth- 200 Million People Use Facebook Mobile- Up 3x from Last Year

A theme I’ve chosen for part of this week’s web watch is appropriate technology and appropriate media for mobile ministry. The following links will help you consider some of the factors that will determine whether or not your ministry has the impact you hope:

3)  Computing at the Margins: Tools that Travel (Video by Ken Banks, founder of FrontlineSMS, 10 minutes)

4)  Why to Be Wary of Design for Developing Countries

5)  Know Thy Audience

6)  The Top Four Mistakes Westerners Make When Producing For Overseas Evangelism and Steps To Overcome Them


Another theme of recent Mobile Advance postings has been mLearning- the use of mobiles for education. Below you will find a couple excellent slide decks on the subject from presentations given at DevLearn09 and a paper evaluating various mLearning initiatives implemented in Asia:

7)  Getting Started with Mobile Learning Planning Session

8)  Tools for Mobile Learning Examined

9)  Using Mobile Phones to Improve Educational Outcomes: An Analysis of Evidence from Asia

10)  Perhaps some of you have been following this week’s launch of Windows Phone 7 mobiles. If you want to develop apps for Windows Phone 7 one place to start is this free e-book- Programming Windows Phone 7 (don't even think about printing it out- it's 1013 pages!) 


1)  How to Start Developing for iOS, Android or Windows Phone 7

2)  Have you ever wondered what mobile marketing technologies and approaches are available to companies when they want to get their product noticed via the mobile phone? I have, realizing that some of those approaches could be "repurposed" for spreading the Good News. This Mobile Marketing Market Map is the best visualization of the subject I’ve found to-date (FYI you can not print the document and you must register at First Partner in order to download it)
