Smart Learning: Are We Ready for It?
Poulova, Petra; Klimova, Blanka
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age (CELDA) (12th, Maynooth, Greater Dublin, Ireland, Oct 24-26, 2015)
Nowadays learning, particularly the university learning, is supported with modern information and communication technologies. These technologies also enable electronic learning, known as eLearning, which is now firmly established at almost all institutions of higher learning in developed and developing countries. Moreover, at present eLearning is being taken over by the so-called mobile learning (m-learning), which is possible thanks to the rapid growth of mobile devices such as notebooks, smartphones or tablets. In comparison with eLearning, m-learning provides further opportunities for more effective learning in the sense of its wireless connections, mobility and portability, full ubiquity or instant information sharing. The aim of this article is to explore whether university students at the Faculty of Informatics and Management in Hradec Kralove are well-equipped for this new smart learning and whether they use mobile technologies for their studies or not.
