  • Moving toward a mobile learning landscape: presenting a mlearning
           integration framework
    • First page: 97
      Abstract: Interactive Technology and Smart Education, Volume 14, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose Mobile devices transcend the educational affordances provided by conventional tethered electronic and traditional learning. However, empirical findings show that educators are not integrating technology effectively into the curriculum. The current paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach In this study, a thematic synthesis methodology was used to develop and present a framework for thinking about the integration of mobile devices in teaching and learning. Findings The mobile learning (mlearning) integration framework is comprised of four main parts: beliefs, resources, methods, and purpose. These four areas are elucidated to reveal the many sub-components that determine how technology is integrated. Originality/value An ecological framework is then presented to demonstrate how the individual parts of the initial framework operate through a complex, interconnected network of systems involving personal and environmental factors.

  • Investigating and critiquing teacher educators’ mobile learning
           practices
    • First page: 110
      Abstract: Interactive Technology and Smart Education, Volume 14, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose This study aims to investigate contemporary mobile learning practices in teacher education, exploring the following research question: How are teacher educators exploiting the pedagogical features of mobile learning? Design/methodology/approach The study uses data from an online survey that elicited information about how 46 teacher educator participants were using distinctive mobile pedagogical features (Personalisation, Authenticity and Collaboration) in their mobile learning practices. It uses the iPAC theoretical framework to analyse the data collected. Findings Findings indicated high self-ratings of Authenticity, and positive perceptions of collaborative sharing (Collaboration construct), often involving generative tasks that required use of creative, media production mobile applications. There were weaker perceptions of Personalisation and online conversation (Collaboration construct). In light of these findings, we discuss implications for teacher education and recommend future directions for research and development. Research limitations/implications This study underlines our contention that teacher educators struggle to exploit the entire range of mobile pedagogical approaches. The findings suggest that teacher educators are cautiously exploring the potential for online collaboration mediated through mobile devices, but have not yet fully grasped the opportunities to design tasks which exploit (and model) the personalised nature of m-learning. The limitations of the study include the size of the sample (46), its self selected nature, and its bias towards Australian and UK respondents. Practical implications In response to issues raised in this paper, the authors are developing a mobile learning toolkit (www.mobilelearningtoolkit.com) for teacher educators. Originality/value There is a scarcity of m-learning studies in teacher education exploring pedagogical insights, and the views of teacher educators themselves are often absent.

  • Mobilizing learning: a thematic review of apps in K-12 and higher
           education
    • First page: 126
      Abstract: Interactive Technology and Smart Education, Volume 14, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose This paper presents a thematic review of app-enabled learning in the context of recent developments in mobile technology and m-learning. We present three key themes that reflect the issues that teachers, school leaders and systems have grappled with in recent years. Design/methodology/approach Drawing on findings from a range of case studies and literature reviews, we examine the present time as an opportunity to explore more pedagogically informed uses of mobile devices, and suggest ‘app smashing’ as an approach that moves the learner beyond the underlying limitations of constraining the learning to individual apps. Findings Findings include the benefits and limitations of mobile devices for learning in current education institutions. The paper also highlights several contexts where 'app smashing' has been achieved and identifies the implications for educators across all educational contexts moving forward. Research limitations/implications While educators and learners alike continue to wrestle with understanding and meaningfully using a growing number of tools, platforms and ecosystems, more recent paradigms such as cloud computing now point to ‘device agnosticism’ and ‘convergence’ as the new normal (Garner, Zoller, Trotter, & Anderson, 2005; Prince, 2011). Practical implications At the same time, we have the emergence of what Rideout, Saphir, Tsang and Bozdech (2013) refer to as the ‘app gap’, in which “lower-income children (ages 0-8) have more than 50% less experience using mobile devices than higher-income children in the same age group” (p. 10). Combined with the problems of app overload, the lack of institutional support, insufficient guidance and unclear policy, there remain some pressing issues that need to be addressed. Originality/value The paper sheds light on the areas where mobile devices are most likely to benefit learning in the coming years.

           Colleges Medical Center
    • First page: 138
      Abstract: Interactive Technology and Smart Education, Volume 14, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose The study explores the use of QR codes as mobile learning tools, and examines factors that impact on their usefulness, acceptability and feasibility in assisting the nurses’ learning. Design/methodology/approach Study participants consisted of 14 regular, full-time, board-certified LR nurses. Over a two-week period, participants used specially generated QR codes to access a mobile website, connect to physicians’ telephone numbers, and access alphanumeric text information. Research data in the form of observations and insights on their experience in using the QR codes were collected from participants through individual, face-to-face, semi-structured interviews. Findings Findings revealed that QR codes encoded with text information, telephone numbers, and URL links to the mobile website all demonstrated a high level of functionality, usability and usefulness. The majority of the participants liked the experience of using the QR codes, citing ease of use of the QR codes; a high level of satisfaction in the kind and amount of supplementary medical information accessed; and the favorable effect the QR codes had on their personal learning. Research limitations/implications The study focused on the evaluation of usefulness, acceptability and feasibility due to the limited time available for the conduct of the study. Practical implications These findings support the acceptability and feasibility of using QR codes as mobile learning tools in the labor room. Originality/value The current literature on the use of QR codes in medical and nursing education is limited.

  • Empathic technologies for distance/mobile learning: an empirical research
           based on the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT)
    • First page: 159
      Abstract: Interactive Technology and Smart Education, Volume 14, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose This paper examines the acceptance, of a group of 79 students, of an educational forum, used for mobile and distance learning, that has been modified to include empathic characteristics and affective principles. z Design/methodology/approach With this study is proposed that the introduction of empathic and affective principles in educational forums is a useful and effective way to increase students’ participation and motivation in educational contexts. After an analysis of existing literature and research on the subject of empathic technology, the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) was used as a framework for our research model. The analysis of their acceptance is done via an extended version of the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) that focuses on the use of the variable attitude toward technology and uses Gender, Age and Experience as moderators. A Partial Least Square technique has been used to test the nine hypotheses. Findings The results confirmed three of the nine hypothesis: performance expectancy and effort expectancy had a positive influence on the students attitudes towards empathic forums, while the effect of social influence and facilitating conditions was considered insignificant; social influence had a positive influence on the students’ behavioural intention to use emphatic forums, while attitude towards technology, performance expectancy, facilitating conditions and effort expectancy were considered not relevant. Originality/value The focus of this study was the influence of attitude toward empathic forums, used for mobile and distance learning, and the results establish the grounds for future research on attitude as an important determinant of technology acceptance.

  • Video lectures in e-learning: effects of viewership and media diversity on
           learning, satisfaction, engagement, interest, and future behavioral
           intention
    • First page: 14
      Abstract: Interactive Technology and Smart Education, Volume 14, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose Because student viewership of video lectures serves as an important aspect of e-learning environments, video lectures should be delivered in a way that enhances the learning experience. The delivery of video lectures through diverse forms of media is a useful approach, which may have an effect on student learning, satisfaction, engagement and interest (LSEI), as well as future behavioral intentions (FBI). Furthermore, research has shown the value that LSEI has on learner achievement within online courses, as well as its value in regards to student intention to continue learning in such courses. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationships between media diversity, LSEI and FBI in hopes of enhancing the e-learning experience. Design/methodology/approach This study surveyed a group of students (n = 88) who participated in cyber university classes in South Korea to investigate the correlations between media diversity and lecture viewership, effects of lecture viewership on LSEI and FBI, effects of media diversity on LSEI and FBI, as well as the correlation between LSEI and FBI. Findings Results show no relationship between media diversity and viewership. Both lecture viewership and media diversity were positively correlated with LSEI. However, neither media diversity nor viewership was positively correlated with FBI. Finally, LSEI was positively correlated with FBI. Originality/value This paper looks at how video lectures affect LSEI. Past research has generally looked at learning, satisfaction, engagement and interest (LSEI) as separate entities that are affected by instructional aspects of online learning. Because of their interrelationships with each other, this study combines them as one construct, making a stronger case for their combined association.

  • Affect-based adaptation of an applied video game for educational purposes
    • First page: 31
      Abstract: Interactive Technology and Smart Education, Volume 14, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose The paper aims to clarify how affect-based adaptation can improve implicit recognition of playing style of individuals during game sessions. It presents the “Rush for Gold” game using dynamic difficulty adjustment of tasks based on both player performance and affectation inferred through electrodermal activity and facial expressions of the player. The game applies linear regression for calculating playing styles in order to be applied for achieving a style-based adaptation in other educational video games. Design/methodology/approach The experimental procedure included subject selection, demonstration, informed consent procedure, two game sessions in random order – one without and another with affective adaptation control, and post-game self-report. The experiment was conducted with participation of 30 master students and University lecturers in informatics. Findings The article presents experimental results concerning the impact of affective adaptation over playing style recognition, game session time, task’s effectiveness, efficiency and difficulty and, as well, player's assessment of affectively adaptive gameplay obtained by an adaptation control panel embedded into the game and by post-game self-report. Research limitations/implications The proposed adaptive game limits recognized styles to such based on the Kolb’s Learning Style Inventory model. Another limitation of the study is the relatively small number of participants constrained by the extended experimental procedure and the desktop game version. Originality/value The paper presents an original research on the effect of affect-based adaptation on a novel approach for implicit recognition of playing styles.

  • Factors influencing undergraduate students’ acceptance of a haptic
           interface for learning gross anatomy
    • First page: 50
      Abstract: Interactive Technology and Smart Education, Volume 14, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose This research evaluates factors influencing undergraduate students’ acceptance of a computer-aided learning (CAL) resource using the Phantom Omni haptic stylus to enable rotation, touch and kinaesthetic feedback, and display of names of three-dimensional (3D) human anatomical structures on a visual display. Design/methodology/approach Software was developed using the software development life cycle, and was tested by students enrolled in various bachelor degrees at three stages of development within Technology Acceptance Model, action research and design research methodology frameworks, using mixed methods of quantitative and qualitative analysis. Findings The learning system was generally well-accepted, with usefulness (72 ± 18, mean ± standard deviation, 0-100 visual analogue scale) rated higher (p<0.001) than ease of use (57 ± 22). Ease of use ratings declined across the three versions as modules were added and complexity increased. Students with prior experience with 3D interfaces had higher intention to use the system, and scored higher on identification of anatomical structures. Students with greater kinaesthetic learning preferences tended to rate the system higher. Haptic feedback was considered the best aspect of the system but students wanted higher spatial resolution and lower response times. Originality/value Previous research relating to haptic devices in medical and health sciences has largely focused on advanced trainees learning surgical or procedural skills. The present research suggests that incorporating haptic feedback into virtual anatomical models may provide useful multisensory information in learning anatomy at the undergraduate level.

  • An ontology to support the classification of learning material in an
           organizational learning environment: an evaluation
    • First page: 67
      Abstract: Interactive Technology and Smart Education, Volume 14, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose This research had the goal of evaluation whether ontology integrated in an organizational learning environment may support the automatic learning material classification in a specific knowledge area Design/methodology/approach An Ontology for Recommending Learning Material (ORLM) was integrated in the Organizational Learning Environment based on Ontology (OLEO). An experiment was performed with fifteen experts and eight-four learners. It was asked to experts and learners to classify thirty learning material related to Software Engineering area. The results obtained from experts and learners were compared with the ontology results Findings Among thirty learning materials evaluated, twenty-four learning materials got closer to the expert classification using the ontology than using the learner’s manual classification. The learners had difficulties to classify correctly the learning materials according to the knowledge area applied. Originality/value In autonomous collaborative environment where it does not have the role of the tutor responsible for organize the learning materials shared by collaborators, an ontology may be an auxiliary mechanism to support automatic learning material classification. The proposed ontology uses recommendations gave by the collaborators to get the correct knowledge area classification. The correct classification maybe support retrieval of appropriate learning materials according to the learners needs.
