This project is underpinned by a mobile learning research framework developed by colleagues at the University of Hull and the University of technology, Sydney (UTS) which is called the CAP framework (see Kearney, Shuck, Burden and Aubusson, 2012). CAP is an acronym for the unique pedagogical affordances of m-learning which these authors have identifed as:
Collaboration - supporting conversations and the exchange of data
Authenticity - using realistic tasks, professional tools and situating the learning in authentic spaces
Personalisation - using mobile technologies to give learners more choice and autonomy and to customise their learning experiences
To gain an overview of the research framework underpinning the project watch this video screencast in which Dr. Kevin Burden outline the theory and its principal elements:
