Mobile wireless technologies have the potential to exploit locationawareness capabilities to engage learners in constructivist collaborative learning activities yet there is little research that explores this capability. This paper describes the design-based research approach that has been adopted for an ongoing exploratory study that seeks to identify ways in which the location-awareness feature of mobile wireless devices could be used to create constructivist-based learning activities. A literature review of existing research in technology enhanced learning applications suggests the suitability of using the designbased research approach to develop complex and innovative learning applications. This study will make contributions for the future research and development of mobile learning applications.
