Abstract


Nowadays preschool education is considered crucial for a child’s development. Recent researches    support the view that the role of kindergarten in children’s progress is very important, as this age is sensitive for their future academic and social life. The use of mobile learning is recognized as a tool that can foster the knowledge and the experiences for this age and the support of specific areas according to the educational perspective. In this paper we try to give a brief overview of the most representative studies of the last decade (2005-2015), which focus on the skills that are explored in kindergarten and are supported by the mobile applications. The effectiveness of mobile learning in special preschool education is also explored.
