"All for One and One for All"- Creating a Mobile Learning Net for ESP Students' Needs
Keywords:Vocational Education, Mobile learning, English for Specific Purposes, Instructive scenarios,
This paper looks into the ways ESP teachers have employed mobile learning scenarios in the teaching of English to Vocational Secondary school learners. Six teachers and 157 students participated in the research. Questionnaires and focus group discussions addressed to the students and semi-structured interviews with the teachers were the research tools. The thematic analysis of the interviews revealed that teachers use mobile learning as a mode of instruction to minimize distances, fill learning gaps due to student absences, enhance the learners’ ESP level and activate the weak or shy ones. The focus group discussions, thematically analyzed, and questionnaire answers, analyzed with the SPSS statistical package, have shown that students consider this mode of learning easy, interesting and useful especially for those working in parallel to the school studies.
