Ubiquitous Learning (U-Learning) Awareness among the Tuticorin District B.Ed., Trainees
Thiyagu, K.
Journal on School Educational Technology, v6 n4 p26-31 Mar-May 2011
The rapid development of information and communication technologies during the past two decades has had many points of contact with education and training. The use of technology in colleges and schools is not new. Teacher training often includes computer-assisted learning along with other multimedia presentation techniques. The power of ICT over other technologies lies in the "information" and delivery capabilities (Peak, Berge & Zane, 2006). The global network brings learning outside the classroom at any time, any place. Interactive communication without time constraint between and among students and teachers--from local to global level--allows sharing of ideas and experience more easily. Wireless connectivity, notebooks, PDAs and their design and use, a transition from electronic learning (e-learning) to mobile learning (m-learning) is one of the challenges being faced by educational institutions. The recent trend of e-education is called as ubiquitous learning. That is, we learn everywhere and every time. So the investigator decided to take the study "A study on u-learning awareness among the B.Ed., trainees of Tuticorin District". The objectives of the study were to find out whether there is any significant difference in the mean scores of u-learning awareness among the B.Ed. trainees with respect to their age, marital status, group and residence of home and to find out whether there is any significant association between parents' income and their children's u-learning awareness level. This paper explores the level of ubiquitous awareness among the B.Ed., trainees.
