Always-on in Higher Education – Embedded Use of Mobile Technologies at BME

Judit Remenyi

Abstract


Although mobile technologies have been revolutionizing the classrooms globally, not much has happened in the field of integrating them into university classrooms in Hungary. The use and acceptance of mobile technologies by academics is contradictory. The first phase of a research – surveying the patterns of non-encouraged in-class mobile technologies (MT) use at the Department of Technical Education, Budapest University of Technologies and Economics focusing on what characterizes Hungarian students’ non-encouraged in-class use of MT at the University shows that the possibility of initiating MT-based pedagogical changes should not be missed. This can encourage faculty members to initiate innovations by designing and introducing appropriate new methodologies and activities for in-class use of MT to drastically change the student experience and this way decreasing alarming drop-out rates.
