Research on mobile learning activities using tablets in Lithuania

A recent research paper "Research on mobile learning activities using tablets" presents current research on mobile learning activities in Lithuania while implementing the flagship EU-funded Creative Classrooms Lab project on the application of tablet computers in education. In the paper, the quality of modern mobile learning activities based on personalised learning, problem solving, collaboration, and flipped classroom methods is compared against the quality of traditional, mostly face-to-face learning activities based mainly on knowledge transmission. Research was twofold – on the one hand, the results of online questionnaires of teachers and students that participated in the first cycle of CCL pilots in Lithuania were analysed, and on the other hand – an expert evaluation method was used. Special attention is paid to the suitability of learning activities to particular student learning styles. Presented approaches on learning activities, quality evaluation and optimisation problems could help educational institutions to select suitable mobile activities for particular learning styles.

The paper was prepared by the project partners in Lithuania, Eugenijus Kurilovas and Anita Juskeviciene from the Centre of Information Technologies in Education, and the Lithuanian CCL lead teacher Virginija Bireniene from the Klaipeda Simon Dach pro-gymnasium. The paper has been submitted and approved for the 11th International Conference on Mobile Learning 2015 at Madeira, Portugal.
