Abstract -A remarkable shift of what technologies may offer particularly mobile, wireless and sensor - based ones,i.e. a SF like provide for opportunities only imagined before e.g. Ubiquitous decade. we introduce here the frist version of our generic u-learing scenario, as an important step toward proper instructional design of Ubiquitous learning processes that take place in Ubiquitous learing environments.
