Using of smart phone in the class by the college students
Abstract
In this paper, I report the result of on-going activities regarding the use of smartphone in the university classroom. The purpose of this report was to identify which content and services could be delivered to smartphone in order to support learning and communication in the context of university studies. Generally, the services joined clearly into students’ previous experience with mobile phones. Students generally observed the services as useful to learning; entertainingly, attitudes were more positive if the teacher adapted academic style and instructional material to take advantage of the distinctive capabilities of multicasting. To illustrate, we describe a number of educational mobile services we have designed. We conclude with a discussion and recommendations for increasing the potential for successful implementation of multicasting mobile services in higher education, including the importance of usability, institutional support, and tailored educational content.
