Abstract

The Internet-mobile device enabled social networks of today stand accused of being so called 'weapons of mass distraction' or worse. However, we point out that modern fears about the dangers of social networking are overdone. The paper goes on to present three phases of mobile learning state-of-the-art that articulate what is possible now and in the near future for mobile learning. The Learning Layers project is used to provide a case of barriers and possibilities for mobile learning; we report on extensive initial co-design work and significant barriers with respect to the design of a mobile Help Seeking tool for the Healthcare sector (UK). We then provide an account of how the Help Seeking tool is being linked to a Social Semantic Server and report on a follow-up empirical co-design study.
