Staffordshire University (UNITED KINGDOM)
The adoption of mobile devices has reached a critical mass in which it is incumbent upon city governments to tap into the power of digital technology to inform and engage citizens in important aspects of city life. This paper outlines the link between mobile learning and the fostering of a Smart City. It describes mobile learning and discusses how it can be deployed within the context of improving awareness and lifelong learning among citizens. The paper outlines the important elements of a proposed mobile learning framework, which are based on a framework derived from Activity Theory and social constructivism. Using the ADDIE model (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation) and a case study approach, the framework will be validated using a sample of nursing students who are using mobile technology to foster greater effectiveness in their learning at the programme level. The paper includes a brief discussion on some of the implications of the mobile learning framework in improving the quality of life of ordinary citizens living in cities across the globe.
