Keywords:M-learning, perception, education, Egypt, survey
The Egyptian school education systems is currently in a miserable state and facing some problems. To overcome the problems, there is a suggestion towards the development and implementation of mobile learning (m-Learning) as a new learning tool in the education system. The aim of this paper is to investigate the Egyptian students’ perception towards m-learning as a new learning tool and its benefits through a survey of 120 students from a public preparatory school in Egypt. Data was gathered and analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) Version 23. The results demonstrated a positive attitude from the participants towards the benefits of M-learning. The majority of students showed their concerns about technical issues of m-learning such as the small screen and limited storage. The results also revealed the positive attitude towards the value of M-learning, especially for those who use E-learning resources. A large proportion of participants use their devices for different activities such as messages, Internet browsing and games rather than learning. This has point the need for more investigation to determine the factors that may affect the students' intention to use their devices in learning.
