Mobile Learning
Mobile Devices & Mobile Learning (Article Style) Mobile learning (mLearning) is defined as the provision of education and training on mobile devices: Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), smartphones and mobile phones (Barton et al., n.d.). “Mobile learning is becoming an increasingly popular way to convey information and enhance the learning process in numerous fields. Rather than being restricted to a specific location at a desktop computer or fixed module, the learner is able to access information from an array of mobile devices, including laptops, tablets, smartphones, and phones” (Floro, 2011). The power and ubiquity of mobile devices grows at an unrelenting pace (Brandon Hall Group, 2015). Today, mobile technologies – originally marketed mainly as communication and entertainment devices – have come to play a significant role in economies and society at large. Mobile devices have impacted nearly every field, from banking to politics, and are currently being used to increase productivity in numerous sectors. As these devices become increasingly prominent worldwide, there is a great deal of excitement building around mobile learning. Students and teachers are already using mobile technologies in diverse contexts for a wide variety of teaching and learning purposes, and key educational players – from national education ministries to local school districts – are experimenting with supportive policies to promote innovative mobile learning in both formal and informal education settings (Shuler, Winters, & West, 2013). Findings showed that while the portability of the device was welcomed by students, and the electronic format was advantageous, limitations such as the small screen size, navigation difficulties, and slow and error-prone methods for entering text, made it difficult to read and interact with documents (Kukulska-Hulme, 2005).
