    This chapter presents an overview of our experiences on cross-cultural design of technology in the context of mobile learning focusing on supporting learners to study mathematics in two different countries. The aim of our study is to discuss design issues from the perspective of two different types of cultures and reflect culturally sensitive issues based on a longitudinal study, which included empirical data from altogether over 3500 learners of grades 9 and 10. As a result we outline two focus areas: content and concept for best design practices. Furthermore, we argue that cross-cultural design of technology can help to identify culturally sensitive areas such as attitudes towards informal and collaborative learning and recognizing the local context for the content. Cross-cultural design of technology supports development of good user experience of mobile learning services for different local learning contexts.
