MOBILE LEARNING FOR PHYSICAL EDUCATION STUDENTS IN VIETNAM: PROMISES AND CHALLENGES

Nguyen The Luong, Nguyen Ngoc Vu, Nguyen Thi Hong Lien

Abstract


The rise in mobile learning has seen an impressive increase as smartphones and tablets have increased in popularity in recent years. The cheap, easy access to these devices for students contributes to the need for use for educational and learning purposes. This trend is no exception for physical education. This study surveyed 125 physical education students in 4 badminton classes from 2018 to 2020 to evaluate their readiness for mobile learning in terms of hardware devices, technology skills, learning styles, and habits. Data coming from questionnaires in the courses and server logs of a mobile learning system show that the majority of physical education students in the study are ready for mobile learning despite some challenges regarding internet infrastructure and lack of formal online learning skills training.
