Free #mobile toolkit and link to the FRAME mLearning model

The University of Leicester has been looking at a framework for mobile learning to fit their learning with iPads in university project called PLACES. In order to build their framework they used the Mobile Toolkit from JISC, and leaned on the FRAME mobile learning model of Marguerite Koole, which offers a comprehensive model for mobile learning in all its social and technical aspects.

The Mobile toolkit from JISC as well as an overview of the FRAME model are disseminated via free downloads which you can find here:
JISC InfoNet. (2011). Emerging Practice in a Digital Age (Mobile Learning Info Kit) (pp. 1-65). Retrieved from (Or:
Koole, M. (2009). Chapter 2: A Model for Framing Mobile Learning. In M. Ally (Ed.), Mobile Learning: Transforming the Delivery of Education and Training (Vol. 1, pp. 25-47). Edmonton, Alberta: AU Press. Free download:

As I am exploring the main factors influencing self-directed learning in a mobile, online platform (FutureLearn) I am screening all frameworks to get an idea what is said, and especially what is not yet said about individual/collaborative learning in a mobile learning environment. I would love to get a framework out on self-directed learning with mobile technology, influences, strategies, getting into the learning zone...

Thanks to Mireille Bikanga Ada for tweeting the link.


  1. First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your
    head before writing. I've had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!
