The Seven, no eight, nine C's of Mobile Learning


This paper was presented at the Mobile Learning Workshop at the Kaleidoscope Alpine Rendez-Vous 2007. It identifies theories from the fields of cognition and educational psychology that can usefully be employed to explain the interactions between the user and their mobile device in a variety of mlearning contexts. The theoretical approaches that appear to be most relevant to mlearning are those that stem from the constructivist approach to learning, involve learner control and challenge by setting an appropriate level of complexity, provoke their user's curiosity and allow them to engage in active learning conversations with a sense of confidence as they come to know and understand. Furthermore, mobile devices enable context aware and collaborative learning which offer opportunities for further engaging students and enhancing their learning. Building these concepts into software and activities designed for mlearning will support and motivate future learners.
