G Muthu Ramalingam, Dr. PC Naga Subramani
Technology in education is most simply and comfortably defined as an array of tools that might prove helpful in advancing student learning and may be measured in how and why individuals behave. Educational Technology relies on a broad definition of the word "technology." Technology can refer to material objects of use to humanity, such as machines or hardware, but it can also encompass broader themes, including systems, methods of organization, and techniques. Some modern tools include but are not limited to overhead projectors, laptop computers, and calculators. Newer tools such as smart phones and games (both online and offline) are beginning to draw serious attention for their learning potential. Media psychology is the field of study that applies theories of human behavior to educational technology. Today mobile technologies are often common even in areas where schools, books and computers are scarce. As the price of mobile phone ownership continues to decline, more and more people, including those in extremely impoverished areas, are likely to own and know how to use a mobile device. The study was intended to find out the Mobile Learning Awareness of College Students in Madurai District, Tamil Nadu, India. Random Sampling Technique was used to compose a sample of 970 College Students. Mean, Standard Deviation and t values were calculated for the analysis of data. The result revealed that the Gender, Locality, Subject group, Residence and Internet users exhibited significant difference in respect of their Mobile Learning Awareness of College Students.
