AR61-Mobile devices supported learning for novice programmers

Mobile learning is considered to be an advanced stage of E-learning. Mobile devices supported learning provides teaching materials anytime, anywhere, and eliminates space and time constraints for learners. Mobile devices-supported learning includes all portable devices such as mobile phones, PDAs, tablet PCs, and e-books. This paper aims to investigate the issue from a different perspective. Firstly, we consider how many novice programmers have personal mobile devices and what type of mobile devices they are using (PDA, tablet PC, e-book). Secondly, we consider whether the Buraimi University College (Oman) Information Technology infrastructure supports mobile learning. Thirdly we consider students' behavior and attitude towards mobile devices supported teaching materials. For this purpose, the survey method will be used as a research tool to collect responses from 1st year students enrolled in introductory programming courses at the Information Technology department of Buraimi University College. This paper also describes a set of findings which helps instructors to take steps to promote mobile learning for novice programmers.

This paper, a meta-research study, focuses on design-based research (DBR), the educational technology variant of design science research (DSR). DBR is applied to develop and evaluate an m-learning environment, Mobile Learning Research (m-LR) delivered by mobile handheld devices. The emergence and evolution of DSR in the information systems discipline and, similarly, DBR in educational technology are overviewed, noting similarities and differences. The development of an m-learning application for a South African tertiary education context, illustrates DBR. The development and research process involved six iterations, comprising four evaluations and two digital profile studies. The study reflects on the nature and extent of the conformance of m-LR to the features and tenets of DBR. In line with the characteristic dual-outcomes of DBR, the development process not only generated the designed artifact, m-LR, but also produced theoretical contributions.



In this paper, we compare the utility of modified versions of the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT) model in explaining mobile learning adoption in higher education in a developing country and evaluate the size and direction of the impacts of the UTAUT factors on behavioural intention to adopt mobile learning in higher education. The data were obtained through a web survey of university students and the models are estimated in a structural equations modelling framework. Many of the UTAUT relationships are confirmed, but some are contradicted. The results suggest that culture and country level differences moderate the UTAUT effects, hence, a straightforward application of the model regardless of the context can lead to non-detection of important relationships and to suboptimal mobile learning promotion strategies. Including attitude in the model is also a prudent modification since it increases its explanatory power.


Abstract:  Look around and you see people using their phones while walking, eating, even driving. There is a strong affinity for mobile. As of May 2013, 56% of American adults have a smartphone. Of those, 29% of cell owners describe their cell phone as “something they can’t imagine living without." How cool would it be if we could design learning “anywhere” “anytime” using something that many take with them all the time?

A panel of experts from Boise State University shared their recent Delphi study and presented the research categories and statements considered important by the consensus of a panel of international experts on mobile learning. They discussed each category by giving examples of related studies. The event was sponsored by The Association for the Educational Communications and Technology - Hawaii Chapter.
