Project Details

Student Network Group for Mobile Learning of the English language

In this project, a student network group will be established. First, 6 students who engage in mobile learning proactively at HKIEd are invited to be co-investigators (student leaders) of the project. These students will take leading roles in establishing the student network group for mobile learning. They will first identify students’ needs regarding mobile learning by carrying out a survey on mobile learning among 100-200 HKIEd students, and then follow-up focus-group interviews (questionnaire design will be guided by their teachers (principal investigators)), and after data analysis they will respond to students’ mobile learning needs based on survey results by starting various initiatives to promote mobile learning, such as inviting their peers to write in-depth apps reviews on latest mobile learning apps, to showcase successful mobile learning experiences on a dedicated mobile learning website, to facilitate online discussions on mobile learning, and to organize competitions about best mobile learning practices. Social media platforms such as Facebook will be used to ensure extensive interactions among members in the student network group. To disseminate their achievements, students will organize various sharing sessions, invited talks, etc., so that successful mobile learning experiences can be shared in the wider community. It is hoped that through the establishment of the student network group for mobile learning, students from different disciplines and at different levels can interact and benefit from each other, and become better and successful learners through the assistance of mobile technologies. The SNG used will be distinctive from conventional teacher-led approaches to learning and teaching in the courses, as students will serve as change agents and playing a leading role in promoting effective learning.
