The paper explores the concept of Participatory Design in development
of mobile learning environments. Access to learners’ reflections
and interaction patterns through personal technologies has been
attained. The study brings us towards the justification of Learner
Centred Design, LCD, since traditional methods in User centred design,
UCD, are limited in scope to support development of educational
technologies. In our case LCD gives a deeper level of contextual
understanding through user involvement.
Keywords: Participatory Design, Personal Technologies,
Mobility and Learning.
