By using mobile devices, informal education could be developed through collaborative interactions at any time or location. The use of properly designed mobile computer applications can support and boost situations that lead to informal education. Thus, in this work a new perspective is proposed which uses mobile collaborative learning for the development of informal education. This work presents an approach based on this perspective, as well as a prototype interface that illustrates the ideas and the design decisions. The paper also presents a discussion about the impacts of the approach on informal education.
