Today's technology has provided unprecedented access to news, weather, scientific data and medical information. If you have a smartphone in your pocket or purse, you have access to everything from the latest weather radar image to a global library of information.
This amazing technology has a downside for people and companies that create movies, photographs, music and books, which are often illegally copied and distributed over the Internet.
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.
