Arrigo, Marco; Kukulska-Hulme, Agnes; Arnedillo-Sánchez, Inmaculada and Kismihok, Gábor (2013). Meta-analyses from a collaborative project in mobile lifelong learning. British Educational Research Journal, 39(2) pp. 222–247.




This paper focuses on the use of mobile technologies in relation to the aims of the European Union’s Lifelong Learning programme. First, we explain the background to the notion of mobile lifelong learning. We then present a methodological framework to analyse and identify good practices in mobile lifelong learning, based on the outcomes of the MOTILL project (“Mobile Technologies in Lifelong Learning: best practices”). In particular, we give an account of the methodology adopted to carry out meta-analyses of published literature and accounts of mobile learning experiences. Furthermore, we present the results of an implementation of our Evaluation Grid and the implications arising from it in terms of management, pedagogy, policies and ethical issues. Finally we discuss lessons learnt and future work.
