Social networks are helpful for people to solve problems by providing useful information. Therefore, the importance of mobile social software for learning has been supported by many researches. In this research, a model of personalized collaborative ubiquitous learning environment is designed and implemented in order to support learners doing learning tasks or activities. It utilizes RFID technology to detect the surrounding environmental objects and then provides social knowledge awareness map for peer helpers dynamically according to the detected objects. The map visualizes the learners' surrounding objects, peer helpers and the strength of the relation in the social network perspective. It is experimentally tested and evaluated in a small special community. The quantitative and qualitative data of the experiment indicate the important role of the map in augmenting the collaboration between the learners. (Contains 2 tables and 5 figures.)
