Abstract

This paper reports an ongoing study of how distance teaching and learning activities can be enhanced by using mobile technology. The importance of supporting the social context in order to enrich the learning environment is emphasized. The study will employ ethnographical methods and techniques to analyze emerging uses of mobile technology by students and teachers. Hopefully, the work in progress reported in this paper can help find and shed some light on the issue of the social consequences of a widespread use of mobile technologies, as well as suggest solutions to some of those questions raised by the current trend towards mobile learning.
