Abstract

This study explored the application scenarios of a mobile app called Ach So! for workplace learning of construction work apprentices. The mobile application was used for piloting new technology-enhanced learning practices in vocational apprenticeship training at construction sites in Finland and in a training center in Germany. Semi-structured focus group interviews were conducted after the pilot test periods. The interview data served as the data source for the concept-driven framework analysis that employed theoretical concepts on mobile learning as well as workplace learning. Case studies showed the applicability of mobile learning to vocational training and education at construction sites and demonstrated possibility to improve information literacy.
