A Framework for Designing Transformative Mobile Learning
- First Online:
In this chapter we outline five mobile social media projects in a variety of educational contexts to explore what works, and what doesn’t, providing examples of learning designs that utilise a maturing framework for creative pedagogies using mobile social media. The case studies are drawn from a variety of faculties and departments across one New Zealand University. The context of these mobile social media projects includes Journalism, Product Design, Graphics Design, Digital Media and Law. Our framework is informed by six critical success factors that we have identified and addresses the four levels of institutional stakeholders as defined by this book. In this chapter we attempt to answer two of the key questions addressed by this book: What do effective and sustainable mobile learning initiatives look like in different educational settings and sites across the Asia-Pacific Region? What are the key issues and key design principles that institutional leaders need to consider to support the implementation of sustainable mobile learning initiatives and innovations? The first question is addressed by our example case studies, while the second question is discussed in relation to implementing a framework for designing mobile learning across these case studies.
