Applying the basics to design innovative learning with ICT:mobile learning with mobile picture-notes
Abstract: In the age of the ICT revolution, we tend to focus on the newest technologies, and there are many teachers who almost drown in the waves of the technological tsunami. In this age in particular, it is important to look at the basics once again. This study presents an instructional design with mobile photo note-taking. It explores the potentiality of using the camera function of mobile phones, which is one of the most basic functions of a mobile phone. In addition to the basic functions of the ICT, designing instruction based on an instructional model is another basic element. This specific paper is designed based on Keller’s ARCS model in the context of English language education. Mobile photo note-taking refers to taking notes with the use of a mobile phone, and mobile picture-notes refer to the notes as a result of mobile photo note-taking. The study reveals the importance of basic elements to design innovative learning with ICT.
