Abstract

iPhones, iPad’s, and other ubiquitous devices have been rapidly becoming a part of everyday life. So much so that educational institutions around the world are scrambling to find a way to incorporate them into their curriculum. This presentation will review the obstacles faced when implementing mobile technology into an English Public Speaking and Presentation curriculum. We will examine students’ responses/reflections and attitudes when it comes to using ubiquitous devices in the classroom; such as iPhones and iPads and provide suggestive guidance to course designers and educators.
