A Classification of Educational Mobile Use for Learners and Teachers

Oumayma Chergui, Ahlame Begdouri, and Dominique Groux-Leclet

Abstract—In recent years, mobile learning has been a fast growing concept. Through the great number of conducted experiments, many researchers and institutions recognize the potential of mobile technologies as a learning tool. However, a wide adoption of the concept itself is still challenging. In fact, one of the difficulties faced by a teacher is the choice of the appropriate tool and, more generally, the appropriate use of mobile for a specific educational context. In this paper, we propose a generic classification of educational mobile uses based on learning strategies paradigm, and taking into account both learners’ and teachers’ activities. We validate our findings by some statistics of the most downloaded educational mobile apps from the most popular mobile App Stores.

Index Terms—Educational mobile apps, learning strategies, mobile learning, teacher’s activity.
