  • 16. Research Results Sub-goal 1  Whether and to what extent mobile devices would facilitate learning Gender as a factor  Equal number of women and men have positive expectations about the first group of parameters (~90% and above)  More men than women are positive about the second group of parameters (~70% of men v/s ~50% for women)  Women show a higher degree of enthusiasm than men Age as a factor  The group over 30 is more positive than the group under 30  Most pronounced differences: individual work, communication, individual and group work during seminars

  • 19. Research Results Subgoal 2  Whether and how much mobile devices will improve quality of learning Gender as a factor  More men (~90%) than women (~80%) have positive expectation about the first group of parameters  Approximately equal number of men and women (40 to 70%) have positive attitude about the second group of parameters  Women have greater degree of enthusiasm Age as a factor  The group over 30 has a more positive attitude than the older group over 30

  • 21. Research Results Sub-goal 3  Whether and to what extent mobile devices would improve the comfort of learning “Yes” – 75 to 80% of the students  Possibilities to learn at unusual time/place  Possibilities to save resources “Yes” – less than 50% of the students  Possibilities to increase the satisfaction of learning
  • 22. Research Results Sub-goal 3 Gender as a factor  More men (~85-90%) than women (~65%) are positive about the new place/time options for learning  Women have greater degree of enthusiasm (~60%) than men (~30%) Age as a factor  The group over 30 is much more positive about the satisfaction of learning and a bit more positive about saving resources  The group under 30 is a little bit more positive about learning at new places/times  Whether and to what extent mobile devices would improve the comfort of learning

  • 24. Next steps  What factors influence the low expectations about the effectiveness of m-learning in some of the elements of the learning process: self-reflection, individual and group work during seminars  What factors contribute for the gender and age difference in attitudes towards m-learning Further research issues  To develop approaches for increasing students’ motivation for m-learning  To develop approaches for increasing the satisfaction of m-learning Implementation of research results
