2 Outline of my presentation Scenarios on collaborative knowledge building of the German Rap workshop 'war project' on creative writing - personally owned smartphone enhance creative writing. A school in an urban area with a majority of migrant inhabitants with a lower socio-economic status recognizes smartphone as normal learning devices and uses the well known mobile application of everyday life. Definition of mobile learning with mobile devices: technology enhanced learning - awareness of contexts Scenarios with Whatsapp for gender awareness and language awareness. Context awareness for gender and identity in a double language situation of migrant families
3 Example of a scenario of mobile learning for collaborative knowledge building with the focus on creative writing (gender sensitivity)Main Objectives:- re-interpretation of war in the perspective of youth culturecreative writing with the focus on the lyrics and the beat of RapMobile scenarios- with personal smartphone - bring your own device (byod)- for supporting / enhancing the verbalisation process in a project on the issue war.Target group Main part of the target group consists of 15 student in (British) KS 3.12 boys, 3 girls, age: 15; perfect in German = native speakersFamily languages: German, Russian, Turkish, Croatian, Aramaic.Rather basic socio-economic status. All of them have a German passport or a valid status for being permanent residents in Germany.- Temporarily participants to the workshop are 1 teacher, 2 students of an asylums seeking family in special class for newly arrived immigrants, so called "Übergangsklassen" (transfer classes).
4 Feature elements of the design – Rap workshop 'war project' on creative writing Alternation of episodes (a) with main emphasis on collaborative knowledge building with students as experts and (b) of episodes with teacher guided learning by the Rap trainer; Students work mainly in 2 self organized groups, which produce two raps with different thematic orientation, workgroup (a) CoD = Call of Duty; Interview with two students from Afghanistan in the transfer class (Ü-Klasse); Workgroup (b) story of the Russian grandmother; Lena's Diary, a book written during the occupation and starvation of Leningrad / St. Peterburg by the Germans in World War 2. Reflection by m-Portfolio in the form of a photo report, reflection by planning initiatives of the students especially by the rap experts and experts in studio technology; Whatsapp-chat of the class under the heading "Kriegsprojekt" Full integration of the personally owned smartphones into the school project with the applications: photo, video, typewriter, WhatsApp. Leading function of smartphones are: to develop of the narration which leads to a rap and for verbalization from interviews to typed texts (see section 3.1); for context awareness by the photo report (m-portfolio) and the context awareness as well by widening the schools learning context by the multimodal text based communication WhatsApp.
5 Smartphone application in line with technology enhanced learning: Taking videos of interviews, text writing with smartphone, taking photos of participants and texts. The steps: (1) From finding the writing issue:informal, associative, from outside of school but recognized by the photo report(2) to formal verbal discussion (interview, video taking)(3) to written texts.
6 Smartphone application in line with technology enhanced learning: Taking videos of interviews, text writing with smartphone, taking photos of participants and texts. The steps: - From finding the issue: informal, associative, from outside of school but recognized by the photo report (m-application) - to formal verbal discussion (interview, video taking) (m-application) - to written texts.First step: informal, associative - recognized by the photo report: Taking about digital war games, which students brought from at home into school - photos made by students for the photo report of the 'war project'

8 Third step of verbalization: written texts On this step students organize themselves in 2 groups with 2 different rap lyrics and different beats.The male oriented rap group 'Call of Duty - CoD'The female oriented rap group 'Russian grandma'.The gender orientation of the groups resultin the case of the male orientation from the boys as experts in rap production and studio technology;in the case of the female orientation from a girl as storyteller and reader of part of the book 'Lena's Diary'.
9 Example of the male oriented workgroup CoD From interview transcripts (interview with asylum seeking boys from Afghanistan) and hand written text fragments to the rap lyric (creative writing) Example of the male oriented workgroup CoDRap-Lyrics workgroup CoD (sent by F.)Part 1 :Schon in CoD hab ichschießen gelernt.Deshalb habe ich mich von der Realität entfernt.Dadurch gab ich mein leben auf , ich schmeißte den Controller weg und ging raus.Draußen hörte ich einen schuss da wurde mir klar , dass ich kämpfen muss. Denn es kämpfen meine Brüder und sie werden immer müder. Denen zu helfen ist meine Pflicht , würden sie sterben verliere ich mein Gesicht.Students develop first ideas for the rap lyrics. These is a written verbalization, which formalizes of associative work.

The video taking girl (T..a) transcribes the video story in Whatsapp. This typed text is than the basis of the further composition. Further elaboration of the text and Rap text.
11 2. Section: Definition of mobile learning Specificity of mobile devices in learning and their rational: + individualisation, + convergence, + ubiquity, +generation of contexts = which leads away from the educational rational of technology enhanced learning.Definition inBerge, Zane L. and Muilenburg, Lin Y. (eds) (2013). Handbook of Mobile Learning. New York: Routledge (S. XXXi)
12 “Wireless, easy-to-carry, mobile devices lead to the learner's mobility, untethering that individual from a particular place. This also allows learners to converse and explore information across the many locations and contexts in which they find themselves throughout the day. As the learner faces the need for information or problem-solving, the need is for personal, just-in-time performance support, information, or learning to meet these individual challenges. To a large extent, m-learning can be thought of as communication in context.
13 Dourish, P. (2004) ‘What we talk about when we talk about context Dourish, P. (2004) ‘What we talk about when we talk about context.’ In Personal and Ubiquitous Computing 8(1), pp Also available at: Available at:Dourish, p. 5:“First, rather than considering context to be information, it instead argues that contextuality is a relational property that holds between objects or activities. It is not simply the case that something is or is not context; rather, it may or may not be contextually relevant to some particular activity.Second, rather than considering that context can be delineated and defined in advance, the alternative view argues that the scope of contextual features is defined dynamically.
14 Third, rather than considering that context is stable, it instead argues that context is particular to each occasion of activity or action. Context is an occasioned property, relevant to particular settings, particular instances of action, and particular parties to that action.Fourth, rather than taking context and content to be two separable entities, it instead argues that context arises from the activity. Context isn’t just “there,” but is actively produced, maintained and enacted in the course of the activity at hand.
15 3. Section: The educationally challenging issue of context awareness and context aware learning Mobile learning beyond technology enhanced learningSmartphone application for context awareness and widening contexts for learning and integrating contexts to school learning: Whatsapp chat 'Kriegsprojekt' and photos report. Smartphone application: Whatsapp, Chat 'Kriegsprojekt' Shortly after the 5th workshop on February 5th has finished the students A..a (girl) and A…j (boy), both bilingual in German and Russian, discuss very detailed the Russian and the German version of the rap lyric 'Russian Grandma'.

A.j: Blos was oben in der lyrik ist , ist falsh geschrieben hh A.a: Keine sorgen das hab ich selbst übersetzt ist schon richtig! ! A.a: Jaa alsop ich das mit rusischen Buchstaben schreiben würde Aj: Mu nie ho4im waynu , paetamu mi delaim etu musiku Ba: Das ist eine perfekte Aussage.

A.a: Jaa klingt besser auf rusisch A.j: Da ist sogar ein reim drin Jaaa A.j: Also verwendet besser die zeile : Mu nie ho4im waynu , paetamu mi delaim etu musiku
17 Such a reflection on languages is extraordinary Such a reflection on languages is extraordinary. It is a result of the context which is individually constructed my means of the ubiquitous, personally owned smartphone with Whatsapp. The educational task is to get this kind of language reflection in a continuous, steady form. Whatsapp is provisional! (This is about sustainability.)
