Abstract

Opportunities abound for new generation students in taking their learning to the next level which employs technologies such as mobile devices and tablet computers with wireless broadband access. There are many ways of using technology to support students’ learning which enables them to plan, monitor, evaluate and regulate their cognitive learning. However, students need to take responsibility for their learning by self-regulating their learning processes. In order to do this, students are expected to develop metacognitive strategies so that they can identify their own learning styles in different learning situation. This paper aims to discuss the impact of pre-service teachers’ awareness of their metacognitive skills within mobile learning environments and concludes that both the design of an online environment as well as the development of pre-service teachers’ metacognitive skills have a direct impacts on learning performance. Recommendations for future research are presented.
