Abstract

The adoption of new technologies in primary schools has fallen behind in terms of children's everyday use of technology. The use of mobile phones has been proposed as a promising field for learning. To date, the mobile learning technologies have rarely been integrated with current educational practices, however. Here, we present the results of our intervention study in which a mobile hybrid media system that combines the use of the traditional printed book with the mobile phone was used in English as foreign language (EFL) education in primary school. The results revealed an increase in learning motivation but also some conflicts when the boundaries of the school world and everyday life were blurred through the use of new technology.
