    • Overview
      Background
      Issues
      This Study
      Results and Discussions
      Conclusions
    • Background
      2000s
      The developmental stages of educational technology (Peng et al. 2009)
    • Technological Collaborative Scaffolding Nussbaum et al. (2009)
    • Wang et al. (2009)
    • The system architecture of the proposed personalized e-learning system with formative assessment mechanism (Chen & Chen, 2009)
    • Issues: What is context?
      “…a multidimensional construct that has overlapping and interacting layers” (Gay & Hembrooke, 2004, p. 75)
      “multiple virtual and physical contexts” (Seale, 2008, p. 2)
    • Issues: What is context?
      Mobile learning environment (Laouris & Eteokleous, 2005)
    • Issues: What is context?
      Community
      School
      Class
      Student
      Context as “that-which-surrounds-the-object” (Cole, 1996, p. 135)
    • Issues: What is context?
      Context as “that which weaves together” (Cole, 1996, p. 135)
    • Issues: What is context?

      Context
      ???????
    • Research question
      How did undergraduate students use the mobile device to support their studies in context?
    • Methods
    • Data collection Instruments
      Interview
      Student artifacts
      Student e-journals
      Observation
      Field notes
    • Data analysis
      Preliminary analysis
      Categorizing (coding)
      Contextualizing
    • Results and Discussions
      Goals
      Tasks
      Learning resources
      Mobile device capabilities and constraints
      Time and place
      Social factors
      Individual interpretations
    • The Mobile Device Use towards Learning Goals
    • The Mobile Device Use to Perform Tasks
      Tasks defined by the teacher
      Tasks defined by the student
      Tasks emerging in context
    • The Mobile Device Use in relation to Learning Resources
      Learning material provided by professors
      Learning material explored, collected and created by students
    • The Mobile Device Use and the Mobile Device Capabilities and Constraints
    • The Mobile Device Use and Time and Place
    • The Mobile Device Use and Social Factors
      Institutional
      Community
      Cultural
    • The Mobile Device Use and Individual Interpretations
    • Conclusions
      Context factors: goals, tasks, learning resources, time and place, the mobile device, social factors, and individual interpretation.
      Whether the context allows the technology to be enacted;
      Whether the student has the capabilities (and also willingness) to use the technology to mediate the learning activity in the context.
    • Implications
      To maximize the possibilities that the context provides for mobile device use to support student studies
      A shift from emphasizing technical aspects of developing and designing mobile learning systems to pedagogical practices and social context
