Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to propose a conceptual framework for the integration and evaluation of mobile technology in educational settings. Research in the development of platforms and initiatives for and in education often displays characteristics of either a pedagogical or technology focus. Only when the technology that supports a mobile learning event and the pedagogic considerations that underpin it, come together, does it produce a successful initiative. While both reflect a perspective, neither reveals it in isolation. By acknowledging this interdependent relationship in mobile learning and its incorporation into planning and evaluation, it is thus arrived at an understanding of the ensuing relationships between the individual, the community, the desired outcome and the mediating tool. In the development of this framework a case is made for considering the technology as a participating partner in learning events. This leads to new relationships that could influence the integration of technology. These relationships are dynamic and change as technology improves and new tools are introduced
