Abstract

The information era in which we currently live is changing the culture of education. The use of ICT has resulted in new opportunities that mobile devices have transformed from a means of communication to tools for socialization, entertainment, work, and learning. The aim of this study is to determine the pre-service teachers’ perceptions towards using mobile learning in higher education institutions. The research sample consists of (121) student-teachers from different faculties in Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris-Malaysia (University Education Sultan Idris in Malaysia). A valid and reliable “Mobile Learning Survey” (Pollara, 2011) which includes 24 items was used as a data collection tool. The results indicate that; pre-service teachers (student-teachers) have moderately positive perceptions toward using mobile learning in higher education, although their perceptions do not differ regarding gender and faculty. On the other hand, the findings show that students seem more ready to adopt the use of mobile devices for learning, so, they believe that a more formal use both inside and outside the classroom could be beneficial.
