Cerratto Pargman, Teresa; Nouri, Jalal; Milrad, Marcelo – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2018
In this paper, we argue that in order to gain a deeper understanding of collaborative mobile learning in schools, it is important to know not only how mobile devices affect collaborative learning but also how collaborative learning emerges and is mediated by these devices. We develop our argument by applying the instrumental genesis theory and the…

Alvarez, Claudio; Salavati, Sadaf; Nussbaum, Miguel; Milrad, Marcelo – Computers & Education, 2013
Education systems worldwide must strive to support the teaching of a set of New Media Literacies (NMLs). These literacies respond to the need for educating human capital within participatory cultures in a highly technologized world. In this paper, we present Collboard, a constructivist problem solving activity for fostering the development of…

de la Iglesia, Didac Gil; Calderon, Juan Felipe; Weyns, Danny; Milrad, Marcelo; Nussbaum, Miguel – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2015
Mobile technologies have emerged as facilitators in the learning process, extending traditional classroom activities. However, engineering mobile learning applications for outdoor usage poses severe challenges. The requirements of these applications are challenging, as many different aspects need to be catered, such as resource access and sharing,…
