Over the past three to five years we have seen interest in mobile devices, and tablets as a learning tool have grown exponentially. What was once a counterintuitive curiosity is now the subject of serious evaluation by an ever-increasing population of school students.
It wasn’t that long ago that the most exciting thing you could do with your new mobile phone was to download a ringtone. In the context of rapid technology development, it comes as no surprise that technology continues to impact the educational domain, challenging traditional teaching and learning styles.
Introduction to Byju
If employed correctly by faculty and students, instructional technologies, in particular, have been found to benefit the learning experience. Research has also shown that it is important to understand the learning styles and profiles of students to have the most effective teaching and learning experience. Multimedia technology has been found to have a positive effect on a classroom of students with different learning styles.
A recent study revealed that 70% of students surveyed believed that technology made course activities more convenient. The same study indicated that 70% of the students surveyed use technology to learn by listening to audio and watching videos. While these studies have provided useful information that can inform the design of the learning experience, fewer studies have focused on the degree to which learning styles might utilize instructional technology differently. The tablet PC, in particular, has become a very common tool in higher education.
They are like laptops in the sense that they are portable, but their monitor can be rotated onto the keyboard to act like a slate. This slate in conjunction with the electronic inking stylus can be used to take handwritten notes and make sketches. They afford rich graphics that aid in visualization.
The built-in speaker and microphone not only enable richer audio presentations but affords audio recording for future playback. The inking capabilities of the tablet PC provide open-ended note-taking capabilities. There is also tablet PC based software that enables students to create and interact with their learning environment.
Today, the new Android phone or iPhone users face the dilemma of choosing the right app for mobile learning. But new devices with enhanced capabilities have dramatically increased the interest level, including among language educators.
