    Abstract

    Increasingly ubiquitous and smart devices have enabled learning opportunities away from established learning places, as students have extended the means and the spaces in which they learn. In this paper, we describe the evolution of a project conducted to explore mobile learning, lessons learned and describe the changes in web participatory technologies that now enable a more open and less structured approach to the use of mobile devices. Web 2.0 and social media now facilitate the ready implementation of mobile devices into higher education, particularly through authentic learning environments and tasks, where they can be used in learning activities, research contexts and for the publication of student generated products. The paper concludes with key implications for practice.
