Students’ Perceptions and Experiences of Mobile Learning

Students’ Perceptions and Experiences of Mobile Learning | Smart Phones and  Language Learning | 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.

robyns tut's curator insight, October 4, 2013 3:57 PM

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.

The Many Benefits of Using iBooks in Education - Emerging EdTech

The Many Benefits of Using iBooks in Education - Emerging EdTech | Smart Phones and  Language Learning | Scoop.it

"Apple’s electronic books are an excellent compliment to their tablets and to the needs of education.

 

Even before the computer revolution, the significant materials demands for teaching and learning were a bone of contention. For school administrations, textbooks and supplementary materials are a giant money pit; for teachers, generating endless handouts is a time-sink, and for students, organizing — and carrying — reams of xeroxed sheets and monumental textbooks is cumbersome, to say the least."
