Abstract

Mobile devices are not being utilized to their full potential in P-12 education. In response to this phenomenon, researchers have identified various barriers that prevent educators from creating effective mobile learning environments, such as resources, attitudes, and beliefs (Ertmer, 1999; Hew & Brush, 2007). How can higher education, teacher education programs help P-12 educators breakdown these barriers to create powerful 21st Century, learner-centered classrooms? This brief paper will describe a survey research study at a Midwestern University that has addressed these mobile learning barriers with graduate teacher education candidates (GTEC).
