Abstract

Mobile devices can enhance learning experience in many ways: provide instant feedback and better diagnosis of learning problems; enhance learner autonomy; create mobile networking collaboration; help design enquiry-based activities based on augmented reality, geo-location awareness and video-capture. One of the main objectives of the international research Enhancing Technology Awareness and Usage of m-Learning in Russia and Norway was to evaluate the pedagogical impact of mobile voting system (Student Response System) integration on re-designing a traditional university lecture course, creating a high level collaboration environment and changing student learning and academic performance. The framework of university lectures discussed in the paper enables lecturers to transform the way of material presentation and turn the traditional lecturing into interactive Student Response System (SRS) supported lectures, then into a flipped classroom, and then, in the long run, into a MOOC lecture. The analysis based on qualitative and quantitative data collected from two student groups (56 undergraduate students) in the 2012-2013 academic year showed that SRS supported lectures encouraged foreign language learners to produce more output in the target language, improve their intercultural competence and language skills and enhance their motivation.

Keywords: mobile learning, mobile voting tools, collaboration environment, immediate feedback.
