Students’ Perception About the Use of Mobile Learning in Solving Engineering Problems Collaboratively
Keywords:distance learning, mobile devices in education, mobile learning, solving engineering problems
The study is devoted to the possibility of using mobile learning for the joint solution of engineering problems by students. The research aims to determine the feasibility and perceived effectiveness of the collaborative method. The survey involved 218 students from five universities located in Russia and Kazakhstan. The results of the study show that 99% of young people have a smartphone or other mobile devices enabling Internet access, as confirmed by the study. The majority of students (85%) believe that mobile devices can be used for learning; 65% of the young people surveyed had already used a mobile phone or tablet to study disciplines. 44% of students determine the effectiveness of this type of learning and 56% were against it. In the context of the possibility of joint solution of engineering problems through these devices, opinions were almost equally divided: 52% of students agreed and 48% of participants disagreed. The practical significance can be based on the opportunities of the use of mobile learning for the joint solution of engineering problems. The research results may be of interest to a wide range of specialists working in the field of education, as well as to developers of training programs and applications.
