This paper presents the findings of a research project in which we transformed a primary (grade) 3 science curriculum for delivery via mobile technologies, and a teacher enacted the lessons over the 2009 academic year in a class in a primary school in Singapore. The students had a total of 21 weeks of the mobilized lessons in science, which were co-designed by teachers and researchers by tapping into the affordances of mobile technologies for supporting inquiry learning in and outside of class… Expand

Authentic Learning of Primary School Science in a Seamless Learning Environment: A Meta-Evaluation of the Learning Design
TLDR
This chapter narrates a post hoc analysis of how the curriculum was progressively transformed for seamless learning (a learning notion that advocates perpetual learning across contexts) and how the design taps on the affordances for m-learning. Expand
Implementing mobile learning curricula in a grade level: Empirical study of learning effectiveness at scale
TLDR
Quantitative analysis of the performance of students in science assessments when compared between pre-scaling and scaling phases shows the efficacy of the innovation when scaled up to a whole grade level. Expand
Enacting a technology-based science curriculum across a grade level: The journey of teachers' appropriation
TLDR
Investigations of the teacher enactment of the mobilized 5E curriculum showed that teachers' different pedagogical orientations affected their instructions, especially their ways of technology integration in the class, and their patterns of interactions with the students. Expand
Perceptions of Primary Education Teachers on Mobile Learning: An Approach in Greek and Latvian Teachers
TLDR
From the analysis of the data, the majority of the teachers in both countries had a positive attitude about m-learning and they had the intention to use these devices in the future and only few were those teachers who doubt about its efficiency for some reasons. Expand
A review of the types of mobile activities in mobile inquiry-based learning
TLDR
A literature review that analyzed 62 studies on mobile inquiry-based learning and presented an analytical framework based on six dimensions to assess the level of agency supported by the different types of mobile activities to provide a better balance between learners' agency and scaffolding.
