Abstract: This paper aims to construct ubiquitous smart learning space to enhance learning skills. To ensure implementation effectiveness, this paper proposes the concept of ubiquitous smart learning space and gives a seven-layer architecture model, the functional orientation, construction principles and technical implementation strategies; through those strategies, the space model creatively has been realised and maximally meets learning stakeholders' needs. To test its effectiveness, we surveyed 263 students and 5 teachers with reference to satisfaction and self-efficacy. The results show that it supports diversity and adaptability smart learning environment and facilitates learners to learn easily, engagingly and effectively and proves that collaborative learning activities guided by the USLS collaborative learning model significantly contribute to student learning and skills development. Teachers are more satisfied with collaborative learning activities guided by the model in ubiquitous smart learning space than with traditional classrooms.
Keywords: learning space; smart learning; ubiquitous smart learning space; architectural model; learning stakeholders; learning model.
