Abstract

Mobile phone has been studied in its connection with education-related activities by many researchers for more than a decade. In Indonesian Islamic higher education context, Mobile-Assisted Language Learning (MALL) has not been discussed extensively. This study is aimed at investigating mobile phone use for English Language Learning (ELL) activities. This study employed qualitative method using case study. It used observation to collect data concerning mobile phone integration in ELL activities. This study found that students were able to integrate mobile phone use to support ELL activities in the classroom. This is to say that there were many features that students seized from mobile phone to assist ELL activities. These activities could be done by their mobile phone assistance that served as learning tool. This effort serves as an introduction toward MALL implementation in Indonesian Islamic Higher Education (IHE). This study shows that mobile phone can be tailored for supporting ELL activities when the device is appropriately integrated. Mobile phone should be integrated in order to gain its benefit to support ELL activities.
