Abstract

Tablets are a relatively new format of mobile computers, which seem to be beneficial for computer-enhanced learning in schools. The paper depicts an explorative evaluation´s first results of the implementation of tablets in schools. In addition to aspects of implementation, this exploration pilot study's aim was to identify how suitable tablets are in school contexts, to detect the advantages and disadvantages of using tablets instead of other mobile computers and to find out if they can produce new ways of teaching-, learning- and knowledge-management. The students were provided with personal tablets in a one-to-one setting over a total time span of 4 months. The paper concludes that tablets do appear to offer significant potential in an educational setting. But access to and utilization of mobile devices influences benefits of the student mobile learning process and have influence on acceptance of mobile learning in schools. In conclusion, the study was capable of identifying main aspects of an effective implementation and a beneficial type of use.
