The Mobile Learning Enhances the Quality of Learning: A StudyAuthor : S.Vijayakumar and V.RameshBabu
Volume 8 No.1 January-June 2018 pp 22-26
The use of mobile phones and other portable devices is beginning to have an impact on how learning takes place in many disciplines and contexts, including language learning. Learners who are not dependent on access to fixed computers can engage in activities that relate more closely to their current surroundings, sometimes crossing the border between formal and informal learning. This creates the potential for significant change in teaching and learning practices. Taking the broader field of mobile learning as the setting within which developments in mobile-assisted language learning may be understood, the paper argues that an emphasis on mobility can lead to new perspectives and practices. With increased popular access to information and knowledge anywhere, anytime, the role of education, perhaps especially formal education, is challenged and the relationships between education, society, and technology are now more dynamic than ever .The present paper was based on secondary sources of data highlighting of concept, Features, values , Challenges and advantages of M-learning.
