At the heart of this chapter is the relationship between the design for learning, that plays to the strengths of mobile and wireless technologies (learning that is essentially situated, spontaneous, personalised, inclusive, and so on), and the design of aspects of learning such as content, activities and communication. We also consider how design should take account of both physical space lay-out and the networking capabilities of the new technologies.
