This research fits within what might broadly be described as a situated social constructivist framework. The aim of this research is to seek new insights, ask questions and find out what is happening in particular school settings where mobile technology strategies have been introduced. Whist there is no intention to be able to generalize from these specific instances to schools in general, the expectation is that this research will help to inform decision making about the implementation of mobile technology strategies in other comparable contexts. The three cases involved in our study are part of a series of 13 studies carried out in Australia between September and December 2013, which are referred to as the Snapshot Studies. These complement 22 studies carried out in England between September and December 2012, which are referred to as the Vital Studies.
