ANALYSIS
01:21
CONCLUSIONS
01:24
M-learning is becoming a salient feature of education as it is a great opportunity and an immense step forward, and it should be supported especially thanks to the benefits it brings for language learning.
01:30
1) The enhancement of the learner’s cognitive capacity, 2) The learner’s motivation to study in both formal and informal settings, 3) The learner’s autonomy and confidence, as well as the fact that it promotes personalized learning and helps low-achieving students to reach their study goals.
01:35
RECOMMENDATIONS
01:38
It is desirable to design, plan and implement m-learning with caution, according to students’ needs, and to deliver multiple languages skills in authentic learning environments.
