Attitudes towards Using Mobile Applications in Teaching Mathematics in Open Learning Systems
Al-Takhyneh, Bahjat
International Journal of E-Learning & Distance Education, v33 n1 2018
This study investigated attitudes towards teaching mathematics via mobile learning in open learning systems. The sample of the study consisted of 57 male and female students enrolled in the mathematics course in the department of educational studies at the Arab Open University/Jordan for the academic year 2016/2017. Results of the study showed that positive student attitudes toward using mobile applications reached 80%. Each of the following scores is ranked as ascending: mathematical thinking (75%), achievement motivation (76%), developing social and emotional skills (77%), and application technology (96%). There was no statistical significance difference (a =0.01) between the variable type of general secondary certificate (scientific/arts stream) as well as the nature of employment in terms of whether the learner was either an employee or non-employee. In light of results of the study, the researcher recommends using mobile applications in teaching courses of mathematics in open learning systems.
