Abstract

Earlier research indicated a need to survey teachers to determine the use of mobile learning (m-learning) beyond pilot phase. This paper performs the first known international survey of a group of educational technology early adopters to examine their use of m-learning in their teaching. The results indicate that, while m-learning is being used, it is mainly being used as the mobile equivalent for standard teaching procedures, and that the more sophisticated aspects of m-learning are secondary. In addition, however, m-learning appears to be strongly pedagogically-driven, and the barriers to m-learning, while difficult to overcome, are not insurmountable. Further research on these areas amongst the broader teaching population is required.
