Abstract: 
MyCLOUD (My Chinese Language ubiquitOUs learning Days) is a designbased
research study with the aim of developing a holistic and scalable mobile- and cloudassisted
seamless Chinese Language (CL) learning environment for Primary 3-5 (3rd-5th
grade) students in Singapore. The project involves a 2 ½-year school-based intervention.
The intention is to enculturate students in perpetually carrying out CL vocabulary learning
and communicative writing activities that encompass formal and informal learning
settings. In this paper, we focus on describing the initial design framework, and
pedagogical and technological design of the MyCLOUD learning environment in cycle 1,
with the enactment process and outcomes being synoptically reported. It will be followed
by an analysis and reflection of the challenges faced and pitfalls identified, and finally the
proposal of a new framework for project cycle 2.
