Squires, David R.
Journal of Educational Technology, v11 n3 p1-8 Oct-Dec 2014
The aim of this paper is to examine the potential and effectiveness of m-learning in the field of Education and Learning domains. The purpose of this research is to illustrate how mobile technology can and is affecting novel change in instruction, from m-learning and the link to adaptive learning, to the uninitiated learner and capacities of m-learning. Followed by a model using direct examples from contemporary literature, looking at m-learning and feedback, m-learning tools, augmented reality and what are the ultimate implications for m-learning's long-term uses, and where the future of mobile technology and education is heading, m-learning is becoming a fundamental form of technology that can enhance and contribute to adaptive learning. The results of this study show that m-learning is transforming the way learners access and disseminate learning content through mobility, ease of access and ability to provide instantaneous feedback, and the tacit link to other innovative forms of technology such as mobile applications and augmented reality tools.
