Abstract

Mobile devices - their prevalence and capability affords new disruptive approaches to learning. In particular the potential needs of learners in work based settings have most to benefit from this. In parallel, the role of social software in Higher Education has been recognized and more recently social software applications on mobile devices are becoming widely available. This paper describes ongoing research in the design and development of feature rich mobile social software applications for the Social Work domain. The paper contributes an adaptation of theories of work based learning with social constructivism derived from the knowledge management domain and demonstrates how these theories have been implemented in a social software tool. The paper also provides an evaluation of the design of the tools using an emerging reference model for understanding and evaluating mobile software applications.
