This article presents an interdisciplinary framework for designing participant-generated context into guided tours. The framework has been developed in parallel to practice-led research in the design of mobile learning tours with young people based in London. The article draws on art, architecture and urbanism to outline productive concepts, ‘seeding’ and ‘threading’, which support mobilized learning in tours of the built environment. In this, context is explored as an active and dynamic idea in developing attributes of the mobilized learner in the design of tours around buildings and the built environment.
