With the Ambient Learning Spaces (ALS) environment, we developed a didactic infrastructure as an integrated environment for self-directed and distributed learning inside and outside school. The environment combines and interlinks mobile, stationary and immersive learning applications on a variety of interaction devices. The artificial division between the classroom and the world outside vanishes through the pervasive cloud-based backend repository NEMO (Network Environment for Multimedia Objects) connecting a growing number of interactive learning applications with a central semantic media storage. This contribution emphasizes on the different form factors and settings of interaction devices to support different teaching and learning contexts inside and outside school. It describes a learning environment for ubiquitous interaction based on semantic media that fits to different contexts of space, time and social structures in school like in classrooms, foyers, team spaces, school gardens, school theatres or digital domes, and as well to out of school contexts like urban spaces, museums, biotopes, and industrial environments.
