ABSTRACT

Basic problems of advanced forms of education are insufficient flexibility, mobility and adaptability to learners needs of information and education whenever and wherever it is necessary. Some of the problems find their solution in capabilities of mobile education. Basic characteristics, advantages and existing challenges to that new and most flexible form of learning are presented in the paper. Issues of integration and combination of collaborative learning characteristics and functionalities of mobile technologies are overviewed. Strategic solutions for learning types development and integration of advanced technologies in different forms of education are presented.

    • "Yordanova (2007) states that wireless technologies have high acceptance among the younger generation. M-learning has the attributes of being both mobile and ubiquitous (Alexander, 2006; Yordanova, 2007). M-learning is an extension of e-learning and has been tested in the literature as a standalone educational platform, but more importantly, as add-on platform and channel for existing hybrid, face to face, and e-learning classes.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this empirical study was to test specific factors of behavioral intention to use m-learning in a community college setting using a modified technology acceptance model and antecedent factors suggested by the researchertextquoterights review of the literature. In addition, the studytextquoterights purpose was to expand understanding of behavioral intention to use m-learning and to contribute to the growing body of research. This research model was based on relevant technology acceptance literature. The study examines the significance of textquotedblleftprior use of e-learningtextquotedblright and correlation with the behavioral intention to use m-learning. Existing models have looked at prior use of e-learning in other domains, but not specifically m-learning. Other models and studies have primarily looked at the prior use of e-learning variable as a moderating variable and not one that is directly related to attitude and behavioral intention. The study found that there is a relationship between prior use of e-learning and behavioral intention to use m-learning. This research direction was proposed by Lu and Viehland.

    • "Students should have universal access to mobile technologies that enable critical thinking, differentiation and solving problems (Wylie, 2012). Yordanova (2007) confirmed that mobile learning can improve collaborative learning. Indeed, the Wi-Fi connectivity of mobile devices, their capacity to collect information and to detect locations can all be exploited creatively to enhance group learning. "

    ABSTRACT: Inspired by the theory of activity, the context model and previous researches, this paper proposes a model bringing together the key concepts of a mobile learning environment based on the concept of contextualization, major advantage of mobile learning. It details the learning mobile environment, its main components, its characteristics and the different interactions between them. The proposed model meets the constraint of mobile learning complementarity, allowing flexibility in its integration with classroom learning such as e-learning or blended learning. It mainly improves upon conventional learning methods and advocates others such as situated, interactive and connectivist learning. Indeed, research several that mobile learning enhances the educational program and reinstates it into the daily lives of learners through their own mobile technologies. Properly implemented, Mobile Learning can make learning activities as fun, as beneficial and certainly more motivating for learners and educators especially in the mobile era where traditional learning methods don't meet all learners' needs. Mobiles, connected and in constant social interaction, learners require learning systems more adapted to their communicative and interactive nature. This paper is an early implementation of this concept in learning systems. It aims to help educators to integrate mobile technologies into their learning activities without alternating their educational goals.

    • "Most of people do not realize that the technology has been vastly used in everyday task, such as information searching, learning, communication and entertainment. Requirement of information society are learning to be accessible all over the world whenever and wherever it is needed[1]. Meanwhile, Islam as a global religion has put strong emphasis on its followers to acquire knowledge. "

    ABSTRACT: Living in a society in which information and communication technology (ICT) is so pervasive is quite challenging. The main purpose of this paper is to discuss the literature on use of mobile application technology for students with learning disability (SLD) in Malaysia environment from Islamic perspective. Mobile technology can offer appropriate educational environment to assist learning activities outside the classroom. Initial reading of Quranic verses indicated that people with disabilities are to be treated with full regard and to have the same subject-to-subject relations that are granted to the non-disabled. In Islam, a person's worth is based not on any physical or material characteristics but on piety. Islam views disability as morally neutral. Throughout the world, disabled people are among the least privileged and most susceptible. Currently, use of mobile application facilities in Malaysian education system is still at early stage. It is hoped that more mobile application with Islamic knowledge will be developed in order to nourish positive value among SLD specifically and Muslim students generally.
