Abstract

This case study, noting the increasing interest in iPad-based mobile learning research and aware of the current dearth of engineering talent in the UK, aims to contribute to a still sparse area of research that links iPad use to engineering education. To achieve this, the study investigates the integration of iPad-based mobile learning (M-learning) into a creative engineering (CE) module in a secondary school in England that has adopted a problem-based learning pedagogy. The findings indicate that iPad-based M-learning is compatible with the problem-based learning pedagogy underpinning the particular creative engineering module, both philosophically and practically, inside and outside the classroom. The integration of the iPad with problem-based CE pedagogy is able therefore to create a new M-learning pedagogical model. Copyright © 2017 Springer Science+Business Media New York.
