The aim of my research is identifying daily practices of adult life long learners and how they can be supported in and across contexts. Therefore in a first step I identified everyday patterns of lifelong learners in order to map them on a model of context. Patterns in lifelong learners are quite focused on the idea of building personal learning ecologies integrated in daily life and with the available resources in their context. In this sense, the dimensions of context are not only desktop-based, but, they are also mobile. Smartphones provide ubiquitous access to Open Educational Resources and facilitate the scaffolding of learning activities across contexts. In my current status, I am working on the design of prototypes that will constitute the personal learning ecosystem of lifelong learners.
