The major research theme of LTRI is Designing for Informal and Lifelong Learning (DILL), which focuses on an investigation of the mediating power of social media, mobile devices, and more generally Technology Enhanced Learning, for social justice and learning. Over the past five years LTRI and the London Mobile Learning Group (LMLG) have developed a body of literature and project outcomes upon which they base the following six guiding principles for thinking about the use of social media and mobile devices for social justice and learning (see http://slidesha.re/GYYP7X for details and related publications):
