Researchers have also recommended the use of technology to provide a fruitful learning, in particular, the use of mobile devices. The use of mobile devices will provide its users with better learning environments like that of use of technology. The use of mobile devices is prevalent among the cuurent 21st century users. According to (Cochrane, 2010; Traxler, 2010), mobile devices enable learners to have better educational resources access at anytime and anywhere.
Mobile devices allow learners to be embedded in realistic contexts (Walker, 2006). This is supported by the availability of mobile technology which include built-in cameras, connectivity, mobility, geo location, social networking, personal podcasting, and podcasting (Cochrane, 2010; Cochrane & Bateman, 2010) Mobile devices have often been used in outdoor and field-based learning providing learners with control over their learning through instant feedback and prompts. These affordances promote a pedagogical shift from educational teacher-centered to participatory student- centered learning (Facer etal., 2004). As such, mobile devices can work without a glitch to support authentic learning in the situated context of the task.
