Abstract

The rapid developments in the mobile world enable educational organizations to be more dynamic and adapt quickly to changes, while differentiating the perspectives of users. The educational organizations or private educational offices that try to keep up with the mobile world's speed are aiming to meet the expectations of the users and to increase their sales while the users make their choices among the mobile applications that meet their needs. In the study, we tried to determine the impact of educational mobile devices on students’ achievements in classroom environment. We used qualitative research method and interviewed with ten teachers working in different high schools. We asked three open-ended questions to the teachers. We collected the data through recorder and transformed them into written statements. We have concluded that the students with advanced educational mobile devices have more achievements than those with inadequate educational mobile devices. Thanks to the easy accessibility and portability of mobile technologies, learning activities such as training and practice in the field of education can also be carried out of the classroom environment. Notebooks, mobile phones and tablet computers can be used in learning-teaching processes with the support of educational institutions. We have suggested that all the students in the classroom should have advanced mobile devices in order to get academic achievement. Mobile applications are used by students either in the classroom or after-school and make learning more enjoyable.
