An Interactive Concept Map Approach to Supporting Mobile Learning Activities for Natural Science Courses
Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Wu, Po-Han; Ke, Hui-Ru
Computers & Education, v57 n4 p2272-2280 Dec 2011
Mobile and wireless communication technologies not only enable anytime and anywhere learning, but also provide the opportunity to develop learning environments that combine real-world and digital-world resources. Nevertheless, researchers have indicated that, without effective tools for helping students organize their observations in the field, the mobile learning performance could be disappointing. To cope with this problem, this study proposes an interactive concept map-oriented approach for supporting mobile learning activities. An experiment has been conducted on an elementary school natural science course to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed method. The experimental results show that the proposed approach not only enhances learning attitudes, but also improves the learning achievements of the students. (Contains 6 figures and 5 tables.)
