Contextual learning activities supported by mobile devices are designed to include some kind of interaction with the physical environment. However, students may place the mobile devices in the foreground of interaction rather than interacting with the physical environment. We understand this as a problem of human-computer interaction, or more specifically of human-device interaction. This leads to the research question: How do we design for contextual learning supported by mobile devices? We approach this question from a design-based research perspective, where we design and evaluate contextual mobile learning activities together with teachers and students in four iterations. The contributions of this thesis are (1) a review of contextual mobile learning research, (2) a conceptualisation of contextual mobile learning from the perspective of human-device interaction, and (3) a model of human-device interaction that can be used in designing contextual mobile learning activities.
