A multiplatform e-learning system called the “Graphical Partitioning Model (GPM)”, with the separate versions for desktop computers and mobile devices, was developed for learning knowledge of fraction equivalence. This chapter presents a case study on the use of the mobile version GPM for the learning of the targeted topic in a mobile technology supported environment. The interactions between a dyad of Primary 5 students and the GPM were analyzed in order to understand the feasibility of the design of the mobile version e-learning system. The results show that the interactions between the students and the GPM have the potential to enhance the learning effectiveness of the targeted topic. The mobile version GPM demonstrated a possibility to integrate with collaborative learning strategies such as reciprocal tutoring and peer-to-peer discussion. The case study also reveals that there is a potential for the flexible use of the dual-version GPM to foster deep learning. Copyright © 2009 IGI Global.
