Muasaad Alrasheedi,Luiz Fernando Capretz
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: In the era of m-Learning, it is found that educational institutions have onus of incorporating the latest technological innovations that can be accepted and understood widely. While investigating the important theme of fast-paced development of emerging technologies in mobile communications, it is important to recognize the extent influence of these innovations using which society can communicate, learn, access information, and, additionally, interact. In addition, the usage of mobile technology in higher education needs not only the pervasive nature of the technology but also its disruptive nature that offers several challenges while incorporation in the area of teaching and learning. Therefore, recently, higher education institutions are looking at various ways of implementing m-Learning strategies, in order to offer solutions, which, in turn, can standardize the process of education and, additionally, replace those traditional didactic courses, focusing on m-Learning endless benefits. Some of the benefits are: the process of learning itself could be self-paced, whereas information could be easier accessed, adding to independent, discovery-oriented learning that becomes more engaging. Applying CMM successfully to design effective incorporation strategies of m-Learning, this research targets formulation of such a maturity model by which the process of m-Learning can be more effective and efficient.

Abstract: Today mobile technologies have become an integral part of the learning activities. With mobile technologies ―Any time, anywhere, any device‖ promise of e-learning is going to become actually applicable and mobile technologies are going to provide opportunities to be ―always on‖ and connected for twenty-first century learners and to get information on demand with ―just enough, just in time, and just for me‖ approach (Yamamoto, Ozan, & Demiray, 2010). Mobile technology includes both hardware and networking applications; hence both of them are necessary for the existence of m-Learning. Today one of the big challenges of mobile learning is technical issues. This book provides case studies and solution about technical applications of mobile learning.The book's broader audience is anyone who is interested in mobile learning systems‘ architecture.

Knowledge Management & E-Learning : an International Journal , 2011,
Abstract: This special issue of the KM&EL international journal is dedicated to coverage of novel advances in health professional education applying e-Learning, simulations and distance education technologies. Modern healthcare is beginning to be transformed through the emergence of new information technologies and rapid advances in health informatics. Advances such as electronic health record systems (EHRs), clinical decision support systems and other advanced information systems such as public health surveillance systems are rapidly being deployed worldwide. The education of health professionals such as medical, nursing and allied health professionals will require an improved understanding of these technologies and how they will transform their healthcare practice. However, currently there is a lack of integration of knowledge and skills related to such technology in health professional education. In this issue of the journal we present articles that describe a set of novel approaches to integrating essential health information technology into the education of health professionals, as well as the use of advanced information technologies and e-Learning approaches for improving health professional education. The approaches range from use of simulations to development of novel Web-based platforms for allowing students to interact with the technologies and healthcare practices that are rapidly changing healthcare.
The Relationship Between Cognitive Development and Language Learning in a Cross-Cultural Context: A Review of the Literature and its Implication  [cached]
Thinan Sangpanasthada
Brock Education : a Journal of Educational Research and Practice , 2010,
Abstract: This article examines the relation of cognitive and language development in early childhood and their subsequent effects on individual cultural development. Then the influences of cultural difference on adult language learners (including ESL learners) are discussed in the hope that language instructors will gain a deeper appreciation of the difficulties that ESL learners encounter in the language learning process. While all language learners learn differently from each other, those from a given culture have certain characteristics in common that set them apart from learners with a different cultural background. This insight can assist language instructors in creating a teaching and learning environment that meets the learning needs of all their learners.

Research in context aware mobile learning has concentrated on how to adapt applications to context. This paper reviews and discusses few mobile learning systems the approach in implementing context awareness and adaptation
The constructivist model and the new technologies, applied to the learning process  [PDF]
Stefany Raquel Hernández Requena
Revista de Universidad y Sociedad del Conocimiento , 2008,
Abstract: The constructivist theory focuses on meaningful learning through activities based on experiences rich in context. Constructivism offers a new model for this new era of information, resulting from the new technologies which have been developed in recent years. With the arrival of these technologies (wikis, social networks, blogs, etc.), students not only have a world of immediate, unlimited information within their reach, but also the possibility of controlling for themselves the direction of their learning.This article examines the link between the effective use of the new technologies and the constructivist theory, exploring how information technologies supply applications which, used in the learning process, result in an exceptional experience of learning for the individual in building knowledge. Changing the traditional scheme of the classroom, where pen and paper are the main protagonists, and establishing a new style, where the same tools are found but adding the applications of the new technologies, means a new way of learning, which creates a unique experience for students to build their knowledge. The central point of this study is the analysis of how the new technologies as constructivist tools intervene in the process of learning.
