Marguerite Koole - ways to consider this “balance between the controls and constraints of social technologies and the needs of distance students.”

Figure 1. The FRAME Model
The device aspect (D) refers to the mobile devices and their physical and functional characteristics. The learner aspect (L) refers to the learner's cognitive abilities, prior knowledge, memory capacity, values, and motivations. The social aspect (S), describes social rules governing conversation and cooperation among people. When a learner interacts with a device, characteristics associated with device usability (DL) become significant. These characteristics include portability, information availability, psychological comfort, and satisfaction. Within this model, the interaction learning intersection (LS) is strongly social-constructivist in nature. As learners interact with others, they can become part of learning communities, giving and receiving feedback and building understanding. The cross-over between the device and social aspects results in social technology (DS) characterized by networking and collaborative tools. In balance, the three aspects (DLS) can function as a filter through which the learner can assimilate information environment and locate solutions to their unique problems.
