Learning Competences in Open Mobile Environments: A Comparative Analysis between Formal and Non-Formal Spaces
Figaredo, Daniel Domínguez; Miravalles, Paz Trillo
Open Praxis, v6 n3 p 235-244 Jul-Sep 2014
As a result of the increasing use of mobile devices in education, new approaches to define the learning competences in the field of digitally mediated learning have emerged. This paper examines these approaches, using data obtained from empirical research with a group of Spanish university students. The analysis is focused on the experiences of students in the use of mobile devices in both formal and open-informal educational contexts. The theoretical framework of the study is based on the ecological focus applied to explanatory models of digital literacy. As a result of the data it is possible to study this framework in depth, taking into account the theories defending an open view of digital literacy. The study may be of interest to instructional designers and researchers in the fields of open educational resources and technologies applied to education in open contexts.
