Considering Learning Styles and Context-Awareness for Mobile Adaptive Learning
Tortorella, Richard A. W.; Graf, Sabine
Education and Information Technologies, v22 n1 p297-315 Jan 2017
Mobile devices are becoming ubiquitous in our society and more so with school aged children. In order to get the most out of the portable computing power present at students' fingertips, this paper proposes an approach for providing mobile, personalized course content tailored to each individual's learning style while incorporating adaptive context awareness. The respective approach has been implemented as an iOS application and the results of an evaluation with 45 students show that students were able to improve their comprehension of a subject matter by 23% after using the application. The evaluation further demonstrated that not only is personalized mobile adaptive learning a successful method of instruction, but it is also very popular with the students who have used it.
