The use of m-learning technologies in higher education: problems and perspectives

Cover Page

Abstract


The article draws attention to the fact that although the use of information technologies in education is widespread and actively discussed, the practice of using mobile digital devices in education is much less common and studied. It is noted that the widespread use of mobile digital devices has led to the active use of mobile applications by students for educational tasks. However, the institutional response to the new trend by educational institutions remains very limited and largely experimental. The article provides an overview and analysis of the modern practice of integration of mobile technologies in the educational process. It is revealed that mobile technologies can be successfully applied not only as an alternative way of access to educational resources, but also for reorganization and increase of flexibility of educational process, expansion of opportunities of interaction of students, teachers and administration, expansion of experience directly during classroom work.
