Exploring the Convergence of the Mobile Learning Mode in Network Environment and the Traditional Classroom Teaching Mode

Abstract


The mobile network learning mode has been praised by many learners because of the convenience of using mobile phones. At the same time, it has posed great challenges to traditional teaching modes. To make full use of the mobile network learning mode and make up for the traditional classroom teaching mode, we investigated the convergence of these two modes. To this end, we analyzed the reasons for college students’ low network learning efficacy. Further, based on China’s current mobile network environment, national network policies, and the experience of constructing mobile network learning resources, we practiced mobile network learning in a course on Photoshop. The experiment showed that the mobile learning mode is feasible and that with the proper use of the mobile network environment, teachers can enrich teaching resources in class and raise students’ learning efficiency in classroom teaching. To achieve the desired effects of the mobile network learning mode, teachers should pay attention to three factors: the change of the teacher’s role in the teaching process, the acquisition of mobile network applications in the new learning mode, and the support of exterior service technologies. Applying this learning mode can provide valuable experience for the transformation of traditional teaching modes.
