This article questions the design of mobile learning activities that lead students to spend time focusing on the mobile devices at the expense of interacting with other students or exploring the environment. This problem is approached from an interaction design perspective, designing and analysing geometry-learning activities. The authors present six(More)
Little is understood in terms of scaffolding learning processes in more dynamical contexts than the classroom environment. The scope of mobile learning research has so far been limited to the scaffolding functions of the mobile technology. Thus, in this paper, a larger grip was taken, focusing on all available means, such as teachers, mobile technology,(More)
BACKGROUND Conventional health, safety and environment (HSE) are a widely used approach to enhance availability and efficiency of complex systems. The integrated HSEE system is defined however as integration of conventional HSE with ergonomics approach. The presented HSEE system introduces a unique, effective and systemic mechanism, which integrates the(More)
A central proclamation of the mobile learning field is that decontextualized traditional classroom education can be replaced, or at least complemented, with for instance inquiry-based learning in authentic contexts supported by mobile technology. This paper examines such a proclamation asking the following question: How do children's learning processes and(More)
This paper presents a study on mobile learning that could be viewed as a manifestation of strong voices calling for learning in natural contexts. The study was based on a sequence of inquiry-based mobile learning activities within the domain of natural sciences and mathematics education. We questioned the effects of collaborative scaffolding, and the(More)
