International Education Studies, v6 n3 p36-47 2013
This study examined the teachers' perceptions on the implementation of mobile learning via mobile phone at schools. The sample for this study comprised thirty eight teachers who were teaching Information Technology (IT) subjects from various primary schools in Penang, Malaysia. A quantitative survey was administered to the respondents whereby results indicated that the adoption of mobile learning via mobile phone at schools was not perceived well among respondents. Moreover, respondents also were quite skeptical about future of mobile learning should it be implemented at their schools. The article concludes with emerging concerns which may have implications for future studies, specifically on whether or not mobile phone can effectively be adopted as teaching and learning tools for Malaysian mainstream schooling.
