The purpose of this study is to investigate the potential impact and effectiveness of mobile learning in the context of a flipped classroom and also address implications for future curriculum design. The researchers developed a mathematics curriculum featuring the use of mobile devices in the context of a flipped classroom. Thirty pre-service secondary teachers participated in the study. They completed a pre-study survey, student reflections about the usefulness of mobile learning, and a post-study survey of their views on their use of mobile devices and their TACI classification scores. Results show there was a statistically significant difference in students' TACI scores between the pre-survey and post-survey. Mobile devices were mainly used for task performance in individual learning and group discussion in cooperative learning. Students' potential and self-confidence were improved through connection, communication and collaboration activities using mobile devices. For better pedagogical scaffoldings in classroom environments, four necessary conditions were suggested in this paper: approachable convenience (access route to a website), the convenience of using mobile devices (free data environment), promotion of real-time interaction between students (instantaneous messaging), and connection between communicating and sharing activities from group discussion to whole class discussion.
