Abstract

The research on the mobile learning tool facilitating students' Science Learning is always a hot topic and worthy deep exploration. In this paper, we adopt an existing mobile tool, namely nQuire-it for exploring its contribution on students' cognition and attitudes towards Science Learning in Authentic Learning context. Experimental design was carried out for comparing the performance on conceptual understanding and attitudes towards Science Learning between experimental group and control group. The results have showed the learning efficiency of nQuire-it learning activities in students' improvement of conceptual understanding and development of positive attitudes.
