Abstract: Learners can command an increasing range of mobile technologies that have the potential to support learning anytime anywhere, but also to disrupt the carefully managed environment of the classroom. This paper outlines a theory of learning as conversation that can provide a framework for the design of mobile networked technology for learning. It describes a prototype device based on a pen tablet computer with camera, phone and wireless LAN connection, combined with software to support learning actions, descriptions and conversations. Such devices raise both opportunities and challenges for classroom education.
