As technology evolves we are ever more reliant on the use of handheld and mobile devices, yet what do we know about their impact on learning? While there is a lot of interest in mobile technology, many schools still aren’t sure how to best use it for learning and teaching. Learning with Handhelds and Mobiles explores this landscape and offers examples of how these technologies have been used for learning, how the problems that have arisen are being addressed, and offers ideas for the future. This invaluable book gives a voice to teachers and educators using mobiles and technology-enhanced learning in and out of schools, for regular school work and for innovative projects through exciting partnerships like Apps for Good. Learning with Handhelds and Mobiles shows the changes that are taking place within schools as a direct result of these emerging technologies, and contains case studies with accounts of best practice in a variety of settings including primary, secondary, and special schools, and learning beyond their boundaries. The book also explores themes of pedagogy, communication and affordances, collaborative learning, individual creativity and expression, self-directed and informal learning and outdoor education. The learning potential of handheld and mobile devices has excited teachers and educators, but until now there has been no structured, systematic overview available along with reflections on how this technology is changing educational practice. This book brings these together to provide a clearer picture of what is currently a fragmented area, and offers expert views of how we can understand these, and where it may take us next.

Mobile Devices in a Blended Learning Environment in Higher Education

Mobile Devices in a Blended Learning Environment in Higher Education

The use of mobile devices, in the South African context, has not yet been fully exploited. There is a need, in higher education, for mobility between places of study. This is especially true for students busy with their veterinary studies at a faculty of veterinary science at a South African university. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to explore how mobile devices and applications could be used to benefit teaching and learning practices in this blended learning environment. In line with the qualitative nature of the study, a series of case studies were explored and data were collected from student experiences as they worked with mobile devices in their various educational environments. Through analysing responses to questionnaires, feedback in group interviews, and observations, two themes emerged, namely the practice of taking notes with mobile devices, and the use of an application called Vetbox to book, log and assess studentsaÌ22́Ơ4́Ø practical exposure to veterinary cases. The results were in line with the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) where the usefulness and ease of use when working with mobile devices and applications, not only had an influence on the attitude of the students using the devices to take notes and to work with educational software, but also on their behavioural intent and actual use of these mobile devices and applications. This study contributes to the existing body of educational technology research in the sense that it shows note-taking as one of the key affordances of mobile devices. In addition, it highlights the functionalities that a mobile device and its associated applications require for effortless note-taking. Also, the study highlighted the importance of the studentaÌ22́Ơ4́Øs voice in all phases relating to the use of mobile devices and applications in teaching and learning in higher education. Therefore, if any research about the use of educational technology or development of applications is planned, the importance of user input though all the phases of development or adoption must be considered. It is also recommended that further research be done on the development of note-taking applications that incorporate the suggestions expressed in this thesis.
