Educators are keen on incorporating technology, for they function constantly within time and energy constrains. In these mobile learning gadgets, they see an answer to their eternal quest for maximising learning with minimum resources. However, whether this technological investment translates to academic advancement or not depends on their choice of tools, and students help in this endeavour by pitching in with their suggestions.

Apart from the two top requests, a few other requests include

  • Course or learning management system
  • E-books or e-textbooks
  • Web-based videos
  • Video-sharing websites, etc. 

Hidden in this data is an important lesson for us. Students and educators love technology in their classrooms. The effects of this are multifaceted.

  • Change in the teacher-student role ranked number one according to a report published by the US Department of Education. Students convert to active participants when they use technology as a tool. They are in a position to set goals for themselves, make decisions and evaluate progress. The teacher no longer remains the focus of attention and changes from a knowledge dispenser to a facilitator, guiding and supporting students.
  • Technology motivates like none other. It provides instantaneous feedback, which creates a sense of achievement.
  • The complexity level of student activity increases when technology is their guide. 

Needless to say, mobile learning is here to stay, and with time its usage is set to increase.
