M-Learning and Technological Literacy: Analyzing Benefits for Apprenticeship
Cortés, Carlos Manuel Pacheco; Cortés, Adriana Margarita Pacheco
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Conference on Mobile Learning (10th, Madrid, Spain, Feb 28-Mar 2, 2014)
The following study consists on comparative literature review conducted by several researchers and instructional designers; for a wide comprehension of Mobile-Learning (abbreviated "M-Learning") as an educational platform to provide "anytime-anywhere" access to interactions and resources on-line, and "Technological Literacy" (TL), as a potential outcome of Technology Education (the study of Technology). The similarity between M-Learning and "M-Education" might be confusing, in another way, here is explained the difference regarding both. Most of the theory developed on M-Learning was conceived in English, as digital resources of public dominion; however, there is a mention for skills applied by students to use mobile devices, originally conducted in Spanish. The method implemented is deductive/inductive reasoning: Boolean data type. The purpose for this study is to merge it with subsequent investigations, and linking the most outstanding concern with a common dissertation. [Support for this study has been provided by the Institute of Education, as a part of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Education at the University of Tartu, in the Republic of Estonia.
