Learners’ mindfulness state is an important concept for IS literature and e-learning. This paper proposes a mindfulness-fit framework to examine how it affects learning outcomes and is influenced by a learner’s social-cognitive processes. We build on mindfulness literature to develop a mindfulness-fit framework which considers the impact of learners’ mindful state on benefit-cost analysis from fit-misfit, and subsequent outcomes. This framework is integrated with social cognitive theory to evaluate the influence of learners’ individual and context factors on mindfulness state. We will examine the proposed model through a longitudinal study of students’ use of a Zuvio system, which incorporates social media features to allow them perform learning and social activities.
