De Jong, David; Grundmeyer, Trent; Anderson, Chad
International Journal of Mobile and Blended Learning, v10 n1 Article 2 p12-33 2018
More and more schools are implementing a 1:1 mobile device initiative for their students because the future of learning will have technology embedded within the curriculum. Teachers are often given the direction to utilize mobile devices in the classroom, but quite often educators do not understand the significance of this technology or agree with its purpose. The purpose of this study was to explore elementary and secondary teacher perceptions of mobile technology in the classroom. According to the survey results, elementary and secondary teachers feel positive about the uses and the importance of mobile technology in the classroom. These positive perceptions by teachers regardless of gender, age, and training indicate that schools should continue to allocate resources to purchase mobile devices for all students.
