Abstract

Considering the
ubiquitous presence of mobile devices around the globe, designing mobile
interfaces into learning systems has quickly become a norm to better
disseminate information to the intended audience. Existing design
frameworks, however, have not fully addressed the unique features of
mobile learning environments grounded in proven pedagogical frameworks.
As these mobile environments enable learners to shift their cognitive
engagement between virtual and physical settings, this transition from
one setting to another presented new challenges to cognitive learning
processes due to excessive distractions learners may encounter. With
these new challenges in mind, this chapter first reviews design and
learning theories grounded in cognitive load management and social
learning. Then the chapter proposes a preliminary mobile learning design
framework to augment existing design thinking and practice. © 2014 by
