Students’ Perceptions and Experiences of Mobile Learning

Students’ Perceptions and Experiences of Mobile Learning | Higher Education Research | Scoop.it

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.

Doug Ward's curator insight, October 4, 2013 12:12 PM

From the conclusions:

"Although many educators and teachers already use technology in class, they shouldconsider modifyingexisting class activities to make them more practical and meaningful for language learning when usingmobile technologies. How students use mobile technologyas a learning tool is dependent on their ever-changing relationship with thesemobile technologies. Teachers should remember the technologicaldemands of mobile devices when planning activities in order to give the activities a valuable pedagogicalcomponent while being easy to use."

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.

E-Portfolios Are Not the Fitbit of Higher Education | Higher Education Research | Scoop.it

This month Jeff Young, Goldie Blumenstyk, and friends have launched a new section of the Chronicle, called “Re:Learning: Mapping the New Education Landscape”, which looks at some of the recent technological, economic, and political challenges to higher education. I think–and not just because it would be on brand to say so–that this is a potentially interesting refresh of the Wired Campus focus.
