Connecting Classroom and Museum Learning with Mobile Devices
Maher, Damian
Journal of Museum Education, v40 n3 p257-267 2015
Many schools in industrialized and developing countries are now using mobiles devices. This has the potential to connect learning that occurs in classrooms and museums. This article focuses on the use of iPads by a year 6 class (12 years old) in Sydney Australia, which were used both in the classroom and on a museum excursion. The study uses a qualitative methodology. Results of the study show the iPads were able to support and link learning in both locations although there were logistical considerations which limited their potential.
