Abstract

This study explored the use of a mobile learning device as a learning tool to enhance novice learners' reflective thinking through "reflection in action" and "reflection on action" on the problem-solving of the Linux Fedora installation. Instructional simulations of the Fedora system were provided through the mobile device to enhance novice learners' learning. The learner's reflective thinking was enhanced by responding to the reflection prompt and summarizing what he/she had learned while encountered a faulty action during the simulations. Learners' "reflection on action" was facilitated through reflecting, sharing, and discussion using the web-based discussion forum. The results revealed that learners showed positive attitudes toward using the mobile learning device to enhance IT learning.
