Learning has shifted along the learning continuum from the traditional face-to-face classroom into interactive ICTsupported environments. The ‘cone of learning’ assists in understanding this learning shift. Emerging portable ICT content management systems (CMS) such as the iPad offer new student-empowered, interactive, non-linear, selflearning opportunities. The ‘interactive 3P learning system’ framework presented herein, enables researchers to test the effectiveness (and value) of the iPad as a mobile student CMS across blended and flexible learning environments. This environment enables testing for improved student personal interactivity (and recognition), and for improved student learning outcomes (measured (i) quantitative student-perceptions, and (ii) qualitative achieved-results).
