Track 7. Mobile Apps and computational systems as learning tools


There is nowadays no need to mention the more and more relevant position that mobile devices are gaining in our contemporary society. Communication possibilities have experienced an exponential growth thanks to the popularization of devices, which, besides their former communicative function, also show a noteworthy pedagogical side.

Smartphones, tablets and notebooks shave become common elements in our everyday live with which users normally fill up time spaces between labour and teaching times. It is precisely in these time spaces, on their way back home or in between classes, when users can benefit from the use of apps and other resources available in their devices to improve their competence in specific fields (such as foreign languages, just to mention one) and get a more rooted and comfortably-acquired knowledge of what has been dealt with in class, thus joining the trend of ubiquitous learning.

In this track, we welcome presentations about on-going researches in which new technologies, and mobile devices in particular, play a major role to enhance knowledge practice and acquisition, and especially when they tackle with the autonomous use of apps and devices to boost the skills practiced in the classroom.
