Reflections on case studies in mobile seamless learning

Chapter

Abstract

  • Seow and Looi have proposed a framework for describing seamless learning, and this article uses their framework to evaluate four case studies and identify outcomes and areas for future research. These cases of mobile seamless learning have been drawn from diverse contexts including children’s STEM education, medical training, corporate orientation, and defense training. While each case is unique, there are underlying commonalities, including high levels of student engagement and satisfaction, and challenges to sustained deployment and replication by secondary instructional designers. Based on our case studies, we identify context as a key attribute of seamless learning programs, meriting special consideration, specifically that the ability to fine-tune context in a seamless learning program may help educators balance instrumental and critical engagement.
