Abstract: A significant interest and a considerable attention have been given, in recent years, to the mobile pervasive and the Internet of Things (IoT) throughout different fields such as education. However, there are only few empirical examples regarding the use of those technologies in learning design and there is a scarcity of theoretical researches and studies within the literature. This paper seeks to fill this gap by investigating features required in designing such TEL scenarios and by proposing a methodology that allows teachers to design, simulate, enact and track, innovative learning scenarios. The strengths of our approach lie in the fact that it takes into account both design and run-time phases by combining mobile and IoT Key elements, Model-driven development, Activity theory and Tin-Can Api specification. We have conducted two researches at the Tunisian Bardo National Museum to verify the utility of applying the proposed methodology. The paper concludes with a discussion of how the methodology meets the challenges.
