Mobile computing technologies are suitable for one-to-one and seamless learning (learning anywhere and anytime). However, there has been little research on how to develop a sustainable innovation for seamless learning to transform school teaching and learning practices. We embarked on a three-year research study to fill in such a gap by doing design research in a primary school in Singapore. Our analysis showed strong school leadership and administrative supports, epistemological changes in the knowledge and beliefs of teachers and students, available curriculum materials to work with the technologies, and convincing assessments are needed to lead to sustainable innovation like ours.
