Using Activity-Oriented Design Methods (AODM) to investigate mobile learning.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The past few years have witnessed significant interest and developments in researching mobile learning, with a lot of important contributions being made towards understanding and defining mobile learning (Kukulska-Hulme and Traxler, 2005; Sharples, et al., 2007; Wali et al., 2008; Winters, 2007). However, current research efforts are being redirected towards a new agenda to establish appropriate methods for investigating mobile learning, as this book testifies (see also Kjeldskov and Graham, 2003; Hagen et al., 2005). This chapter contributes to this research effort by articulating how to adapt Activity-Oriented Design Methods (AODM – see Mwanza, 2002) for use in mobile learning research.
