Abstract

Although conventional mobile learning can help connect students to nature, they are usually taught in the form of 'units', rather than through the use of an entire system. However, students should be taught system-thinking skills in order for them to gain an overall understanding of complex environmental issues. The purpose of this paper is to solve this issue by integrating social media into conventional mobile learning, using a system called M-Learning 2.0. This integration can promote collaborative sharing of life experiences in nature as well as discussion of different perspectives. Therefore, this paper first introduces a fundamental framework that builds an environment according to a social cognition model. Furthermore, a pilot case study involving students collaboratively taking photos via the use of a mobile application is conducted. Finally, further research issues related to M-Learning 2.0 are proposed. It is hoped that this work will provide readers with a potential research blueprint.
