Abstract

This chapter provides a discussion, examples and case studies mainly associated with visual imagery. We provide a general illustration of what you can do with mobile technologies and how they have changed, and are changing, tutors’ views of education. More detailed aspects of photography and related apps are covered in Chap.  8.
