TOC What is Mobile Collaborative Informal Learning (MCIL)? Research Objectives Case study 1 Case study 2 Results Future Work Reference
MCILE Mobile Devices (Laptop, Smart phones, Tablets etc.) Designing of Learning Activities. Learning tools Learner
Research Objectives Think of Activity designing , tools, and task Collaboration Design learning activities Tool appropriation MCILE
Designing is challenge “It’s really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.” – Steve Jobs Learner do not know what they want? Asking learner to what they want , in design what they want?

Case Study 1 Tools( Artifact) Outcome (Summary +Presentation)Subject(PhD Students) Objective (Collaboration) Division of Labor Rules COP(Professor) (Team members) Building on the work of Vygotsky, L. S., 1978; Engestrom , 1987; Gustavo Zurita, and Miguel Nussbaum 2004
Case Study 2 Tools( Artifact) ( Team box, Stixy) Outcome (Summary +Presentation)Subject(PhD Students) Objective (Collaboration) Division of Labor Rules COP(Professor) (Team members) Building on the work of Vygotsky, L. S., 1978; Engestrom , 1987; Gustavo Zurita, and Miguel Nussbaum 2004
Results Case Study (Facilitator Participation less, Lack of tool to capture detail data) Case study 2 (Used Team box and Stixy) Active participation of facilitator plays very important role in effective Collaborative learning activities Multimedia task need to design.
Statements of Learners “I have learned how to search papers easily during this collaborative task” “However, I understood course materials and concept of article better by collaboration with my friends”
Future Work Improvement in designing the MCIL activity. Second iteration of same activity and focus on peer evaluation of activities.
