Learning potentials of the ubiquitous internet: Using mobile technologies to support the individual, social and physical context of the learner

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskningpeer review

The aim of this paper is to identify the key learning potentials of the ubiquitous internet. Rather than focusing on mobile technology or the mobility of the learner, the paper emphasises the ubiquity of internet access as a paramount catalyst for new learning in the digital age. From a sociocultural perspective the paper discusses different ways in which the use of mobile devices can extend and augment the context of the learner. The learning potentials of the ubiquitous internet relate to the opportunities to extend the context of the learner on three levels: 1) personalisation of information and communication, 2) perpetual social contact and visibility, and 3) augmentation of the physical context with an additional layer of information.
