Abstract

This article illustrates features and outcomes of the experiences with uProf!, a model for teachers' professional training in ubiquitous learning by tablets and Quick Response (QR) codes. The model was designed, implemented and successfully validated in 2012 within a full-immersion, learner-centred and metacognitive course for 80 Italian high school teachers who are part of a school network for the enhancement of curriculum continuity from middle into high school. Later on, uProf! has been used to provide continuous professional training and tailored in-class tutoring during these teachers' first implementations of technology-enhanced learning experiences.
