|Abstract: ||過去十數年來電腦與網路的廣泛流行事實上已大幅改變人們面對資訊時處理的方式。它同時也改變了許多學生學習的方法。學習從最傳統以教師為中心的上課方式，演化為比較以學生為中心的學習合作模式，到以電腦為輔助的行動學習模式。學生不但可以經由電腦與同儕及老師連線，更可將其觸角伸向全世界。現在最新的科技已經可以將學習帶到另一個層面。無線區域網路（WiFi）的架設使得學習者可以在行走的同時擷取即時多媒體（Real-Time Multimedia）網路資訊來取得訊息或學習。也就是說，學習者只需隨身攜帶行動學習載具例如 PDA 或手提電腦，就可以隨走隨學習與吸取新知。當然也可以隨時與同儕及老師聯絡。面對與電腦網路一起成長且習慣於網路學習的學生，教師應至少嘗試將網路與行動學習的概念放進現今的教室中。 目前在網路上的資訊至少有 80%是英語，因此英文也逐漸成為跨領域國際溝通之共同語言。因此，如何提昇學生之英語能力，也成為現今教師們的挑戰。 本論文即在這樣的思考架構下，結合英語學習與政大之無線區域網路，期望能以行動學習的模式，利用行動學習載具，讓學生的學習效果更佳。因此，本文將先探討行動學習的理論，其在一般學習與語言學習上的應用，再進一步討論教師如何利用網路的優勢來學習英語。|
The pervasive popularity of the Internet in the past decade has largely changed the way people process information around the world. It also changed the way many students learn. Learning has evolved from the traditional classroom lecture teacher-centered to collaboration student-centered, and to mobile learning that students have direct interaction with the teachers, their peers, and even the world via the Internet. Now, the latest technology has taken learning to the next level. With the installment of WiFi, it is possible for learners to access Real-Time Multimedia information on the net. In other words, students with a mobile device such as a PDA, or a notebook computer, can access to information they wish to know or to learn when they are walking or moving around. They can also receive immediate feedback from their peers and/or their teachers. Facing a group of students, digital natives, who grow up with the Internet and communicate using the Internet, teachers of all disciplines need to try to modify or at least incorporate the Internet and the concept of mobile learning into classrooms today. Besides, as more than 70% of the information on the Internet is in English, English has become the most commonly used language for people around the world to access information and to communicate. Thus, how to improve students’ English ability is another challenge teachers face today. With these notions in mind, this paper tries to combine English learning and a WiFi environment with the hope to incorporate language learning with the latest mobile learning technology. As this paper being part of an on going research project, the main study result is not yet conclusive. However, this paper will share with its readers the theory of mobile learning, the significance of its application in learning in general and in language learning, how the main study will be conducted, and some tentative conclusions. Hopefully, this paper would shed some light on how English teachers can take advantage of the latest technology, and how mobile learning might enhance learning in- and outside classroom.
