We welcome research papers on mobile technology's pedagogical uses, where the focus is broad enough to be of interest to a broader education community. We also welcome: (1) systematic review papers and meta-analyses that include straightforward research questions, a framework of analysis, and conclusions that reflect the paper's aims; (2) studies that focus on teaching and learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and educational robotics; (3) studies that address specific challenges in improving students’ achievement, approaches used to motivate and engage students, and lessons learned from changes in curriculum and instruction based on educational technology in general.</p> <p>Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:&nbsp;<br>• M-learning Educational Technology<br>• M-learning Educational Philosophy and Theory <br>• M-learning Education Innovation Management <br>• M-learning Educational Psychology<br>• M-learning Educational Policy<br>• M-learning Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis<br>• M-learning Educational Economics<br><br></p> Teaching mathematics with mobile devices and the Realistic Mathematical Education (RME) approach in kindergarten 2021-04-19T10:22:36+08:00 Stamatios Papadakis Michail Kalogiannakis Nicholas Zaranis <p>Nowadays, smart mobile devices such as tablets and accompanying applications (apps) are a part of young children's daily lives. In kindergarten education, properly designed digital educational activities can become a potent educational tool for efficient and effective learning. These tools allow children to take advantage of new learning platforms and effectively reach new knowledge through activities related to their immediate interests and real-life scenarios in learning domains, such as mathematics. At the Department of Preschool Education, University of Crete, systematic research was carried out in the last years to investigate whether there are compelling benefits to using tablet-type devices in preschool education to implement teaching reform proposals to implement the Realistic Mathematical Education in kindergarten classrooms. The findings propose mobile devices' integration, running developmentally appropriate apps, in kindergarten classrooms. These apps were based on the three levels of Realistic Mathematics Education (RME), targeting fundamental mathematical concepts for the kindergarten level.</p> 2021-04-19T10:22:35+08:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Advances in Mobile Learning Educational Research (A.M.L.E.R.): Mobile learning as an educational reform 2021-03-30T15:55:24+08:00 Stamatios Papadakis <p>The journal Advances in Educational Research and Evaluation is a peer-reviewed openaccess journal aimed to be a medium for discussing a wide range of international educational experiences and assessment techniques.
