This report describes the theory and research literature that underpin Smart Learning (SL) including a description of the context and need for the initiative. It describes the way multiple bodies of literature intersect in the theory, design and practice that drive SL in five areas. They are:
Context and Need: The context for Smart Learning is addressed in two ways. The first describes the uncertain circumstances surrounding the sector at this time that creates a context and need for initiatives like SL. The second examines the existing state of readiness for curricular reform in higher education.
Theoretical Framework: The theoretical basis for Smart Learning and the literature associated with that theory.
Learning and Teaching Research: The literature that provides Smart Learning content. This work is employed to design the systems, methods and tools involved in the initiative.
Efficacy Research Underpinning Smart Learning: The research applying the theory in K-12 and higher education.
Edge Technology: The research and practice that underpins the design of Smart Tools (ST) and the approach to emergent feedback and analytics.
