Abstract

Supporting collaborative learning in relation to geographical location is becoming more prevalent for learners who are geographically connected (geolearners). The advancement of mobile and ubiquitous computing enables determination of geographical location, supporting geolearners in collaborating and participating through Web 2.0 technologies. In this paper, we describe the design and development of a system that facilitates location-based, situated and collaborative language learning incorporating the potential of Internet-based television and mobile phone. We present TAMALLE+ (Television and Mobile phone Assisted Language Learning Environment), based on the requirements that were captured from multiple sources. Finally, we discuss results of multi-method evaluation studies, together with further direction to our research.
