Abstract

Mobile communications technology, over recent years, has become an integral part of everyday life with individuals viewing this method of communication as a necessity rather than a luxury. The continued trend in the convergence of technological devices, e-learning environments, and the advent of third generation phones has provided increased speed of data transfer and further opportunities for both teachers and learners to meet, access and exchange information whilst on the move. As part of ongoing research into the use of mobile phones in initial teacher education, this paper surveys the attitudes of an entering cohort of student teachers towards the use of these technologies. The findings explore this group's current and previous use of mobile technologies in social, work-based and education environments and elicits student perceptions of the potential of these ubiquitous technologies to enhance their emerging professional practice.
