Little is understood in terms of scaffolding learning processes in more dynamical contexts than the classroom environment. The scope of mobile learning research has so far been limited to the scaffolding functions of the mobile technology. Thus, in this paper, a larger grip was taken, focusing on all available means, such as teachers, mobile technology, pre- and post-activities as supportive structures. In doing that a sequence of learning activities were designed within the domain of mathematics education. We asked what scaffolding role the available resources can play in supporting the students learning processes, and further, how we are to orchestrate these resources across contexts in a pedagogical manner. The findings demonstrates how students' learning processes are to be scaffolded and how learning in an outdoor context can be meaningfully supported through the sequencing of activities and the utilisation of pre- and post-activities in indoor contexts.
