Over the past two years the University of Johannesburg embarked on a journey to introduce the use of mobile devices into the classroom to support 21st century teaching and learning. This reflective case study explores the development and use of an appropriate framework to support learning with technology that is aligned to student and staff skill and professional development, a redesign of the support environment to provide just-in-time support, and development of tools for use by mobile devices and infrastructural and policy changes. It is argued that the introduction of mobile devices into teaching and learning is a disruptive event that is part of a radicle innovation. Individuals supported by institutional managerial processes, rather than the managerial processes themselves, drove the innovation in order to create an ecosystem for the use of mobile devices in the classroom.
