Seamless learning refers to a continuous, holistic learning process across learning contexts. In the past decade, most researchers and practitioners believe that seamless learning should be implemented with 1:1 (one-mobile-device-per-learner), 24x7 setting. One of the key research efforts of seamless learning was the WE Learn project in Singapore. With the aim of transforming the formal Primary 3-4 science curriculum into a seamless learning experience, the learning model has been diffused to ten schools after the successful proof-of-concept in the seed school. Nevertheless, we see the challenge of further spreading the model with the 1:1, 24x7 setting as most primary schools are not ready to implement Bring Your Own Device in 5-10 years. Thus, we propose an alternative techno-pedagogical framework that relies less on 1:1 and instead combines social media and multiple ICT tools - individual students may switch between these tools at their convenience to have access to a common social media space for seamless learning. In addition, we streamline the design principles in order not to overwhelm the teachers and yet preserve the essence of seamless learning.
