Students’ Perceptions and Experiences of Mobile Learning

Students’ Perceptions and Experiences of Mobile Learning | digital divide information |

This study focused on how students perceive the use of mobile devices to create a personalized learning experience outside the classroom. Fifty-three students in three graduate TESOL classes participated in this study. All participants completed five class projects designed to help them explore mobile learning experiences with their own mobile devices, incorporating technologies such as YouTube and VoiceThread. We identified characteristics of these mobile users in Mobile Language Learning (MLL), and the results illuminate how MLL opens up new pedagogical scaffoldings.

I get so excited when I see more developments on tyring to intergrate technology and education. This is because by combining learning with education, scholars get the opportunity of understanding academics through everyday technology such as their mobile phones. This article also interests me because I am interested in finding out how technology can assist teachers in making subjects such as maths and science more easier for learners.

For shorter courses connected mobile learning has advantages. For more substantial courses digital learning material needs to available offline.

What You Need to Know About Mobile Learning

New guide helps educators integrate technology for classroom use.


Rather than ban mobile devices in schools, shouldn’t we look for ways to responsibly and effectively integrate them? Does it make sense to rule out the educational benefits of cell phones, for instance, simply because we are concerned about the potential for misuse or distraction? If students are using these tools in their daily lives, shouldn’t they also be using them in school?
