Abstract [en]

The paper deals with the use of mobile technology in decentralized university education. In order to support individual and collective activities we have conducted a study, which elaborates the shift between private and public dimensions of information. To approach the problem we have used the notion of grounding and Vygotskys’ cultural approach and conducted a study where student groups are set out to construct individual and collective concept maps in PDA’s and desktop computers. The study show that personal technologies has potential features to enhance learning, as they are (1) present both in individual and collective phases of a learning activity, and (2) a support for sharing individually created representations with in a group and moreover (3) play different roles in the process of grounding.
