What are learners' attitudes toward the use of mobile technologies in learning? A positive attitude toward the acceptance of the innovation is crucial and indicative of a state of readiness to sustain or use that innovation. The purpose of this study is two fold: 1) to describes an instrument developed to measure learners' attitudes toward the use of wireless-mobile technologies in learning, 2) to present the results of a study on learners' perceptions regarding the acceptance of using mobile-technologies in learning. A factorial analysis revealed an estimated alpha internal consistency score of .85 for a heterogeneous group of college students. Collecting reliable data from college students, with regard to their attitude toward the use of mobile technologies in learning processes, can provide valuable insights into assessing readiness to integrate mobile technologies into the classroom and/or learning at distance and interventions/support systems designed to help teachers enhance students' learning.
