Abstract: Recently it has been widely acknowledged that the incorporation of advanced information technologies in the areas of ecological informatics may provide significant assets towards social environmental awareness. In this paper we present a sophisticated mobile learning system which offers environmental educational information to users based on their current geographical location. The system adapts its content according to the user’s personal characteristics and to the user’s mobile device. The adaptation of the user’s interface is accomplished through the incorporation of a well known decision making model, namely the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). The resulting prototype system is called m-AWARE and is targeted to people of all ages, providing easily accessible information about our environment for environmental awareness purposes.
