Lin, Xiao-Fan; Deng, Cailing; Hu, Qintai; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Close links between students' conceptions of and approaches to learning were established in the past research. However, only a few quantitative studies investigated this relationship particularly with regard to mobile learning (m-learning). The correlation between learners' conceptions and approaches to m-learning was analysed using a partial…

Herodotou, C. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Mobile applications are popular among young children, yet there is a dearth of studies examining their impact on learning and development. A systematic review identified 19 studies reporting learning effects on children 2 to 5 years old. The number of children participating in experimental, quasi-experimental, or mixed-method studies was 862 and…

Wu, Ting-Ting – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Memorizing English vocabulary is often considered uninteresting, and a lack of motivation exists during learning activities. Moreover, most vocabulary practice systems automatically select words from articles and do not provide integrated model methods for students. Therefore, this study constructed a mobile game-based English vocabulary practice…
