Abstract

This paper explores the usefulness of mobile technologies in the classroom, focusing on the Audience Response System of Padlet used during a specific module. Questionnaires (with both closed and open ended questions) were used to research how students engaged with this technology, particularly whether it encouraged greater participation as well as deep learning. Overall, the students had positive responses to Padlet as highlighted by the statistical findings. The comments in the open ended sections, though, noted that there are some issues with using such technology in classrooms. Importantly, it is worth noting that the technology should be embedded into the sessions within a variety of different methods in order to encourage deep learning.
