Title : Are Thai Students ready for Mobile-Assisted Language Learning?
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

Mobile learning (m-Learning) has been promoting throughout various disciplines, including language learning. M-learning has become an influencing tool for language learning from vocabulary learning, listening comprehension to reading. It makes language education as ubiquitous as possible. M-learning supports information learning, caters for powerful and unplanned ways of learning, and promotes sensibly personalized learning. Nevertheless, there are also concerns on the application of mobile-assisted language learning (MALL). For instance, the challenge of searching for suitable and effective methods to blend formal and informal learning, as seamless learning can occur anytime; in and out of classrooms, in formal settings, and the feeling of isolation, or separation bringing about opportunities for learners to work alone and isolated from other learners. In Thailand, m-learning is being employed in different fields of studies. M-learning has also gained popularity among policy makers, researchers, educators, and practitioners. When it is caught a lot of attention, before any teachers launch new ways of learning to students, it is better to understand whether students are ready for this yet. Despite expressing an interest towards MALL, students may not quite ready and uncertain about what MALL offers to help their learning process. This presentation, therefore, aims at offering the findings gathered on Thai students’ perceptions on MALL, and whether or not their current digital literacy matches this learning approach. The sampling groups are university students from three main fields of studies; sciences and technology, medical sciences, and humanities and social sciences. The questionnaire and semi-structure interviews are conducted. The findings are expected to be fruitful for both designing MALL environments and planning appropriate MALL pedagogical approaches for the context.
