Abstract

Mobile devices are being used as learning tools for grade three and grade four students at Nan Chiau Primary School in Singapore. This is part of the WeLearn Project initiative by the University of Michigan, Microsoft and Nokia, the aim of this project is to shift learning from a traditional teacher centric model to a dynamic and collaborative student centric model. In this paper the project is briefly described with a focus on barriers and limitations that is facing mobile devices integration at Nan Chiau Primary School. This is based on a school visit that was conducted in July 2014, where students were observed during class time and out of class time, while teachers were interviewed separately and in groups. Meetings with administration staff and other stakeholders from outside the school were also conducted. In this short paper we attempt to summarize and group barriers and limitations that we have identified during our visit.
