In this paper we propose appropriation as the key for the recognition of mobile devices as well as the artefacts accessed through, and produced with them as cultural resources in and across different cultural practices of use, in particular everyday life and formal education. We analyse the interrelationship of mobile device users with the structures, agency and practices of, and in relation to, what we call the 'mobile complex'. We do so on the basis of two examples, located in socialisation and ‘off-site’ learning, and we propose curricular options for the assimilation of mobile devices into settings of formal learning. We also present a typology of appropriation that seeks to serve as an explanatory, analytical frame as well as a starting point for discussion about related issues. It does not seek to be understood as a definitive map of the field.
