AN INTERACTIVE MOBILE LEARNING TOOL FOR LARGE CLASS-ROOM TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT

S.W. Cheung, Jade Wong

Abstract

This paper presents a simple interactive m-learning tool for large class-room teaching and assessment. The problems occur in teaching a large class are discussed and using the m-learning tool presented is proposed as a solution. In teaching large classes, the teachers very often find it very difficult to know how much the students have learnt and their levels of understanding in the class. With the use of the m-learning tool, teachers can monitor the progress of students during class and know what the students need, hence adjust their teaching pace to adapt the students’ learning ability. To access some of the effects, the m-learning tool has been modified to be used in a mobile quiz contest with participation of 17 secondary and primary schools. Feedbacks in the events are very encouraging.
