This case study focuses on using the Internet Technological, Pedagogical, and Content Knowledge (iTPACK) as a theoretical framework for mobile learning. First, the study examined iTPACK from two perspectives, synchronous and asynchronous, and discussed how both perspectives could be used individually or integrated to support a blended learning approach for mobile learning in formal and non-formal learning. Second, the case examined how iTPACK was used as the theoretical framework in a mobile learning case study on using text messaging as a teaching tool in a pre-algebra course at a community college with non-traditional students. Finally, the author offers thoughts on why iTPACK is an appropriate theoretical framework for mobile learning, and the implications of using iTPACK in non-formal and formal settings to supplement classroom instruction.
