Abstract

The changing nature of teaching and learning in an age of accessible technologies provides challenges and opportunities for the design of learning events. Working with a sample of undergraduate students of education in one UK higher education institution we use an exploratory, qualitative approach to investigate students’ spontaneous uses of their mobile devices in their learning. We argue that students’ preferences and practices need to be jointly considered in the design of learning if it is to be effective.
