If we want students to become smarter than a smartphone, we need to think harder about the pedagogies we are using to teach them. Technology can amplify great teaching but great technology cannot replace poor teaching” (OECD, 2015). Nowadays, the Neumann Galaxy lives together with the Gutenberg Galaxy. Both printed books and mobile devices can be applied in education. The following question often arises: In which proportion should they be used by teachers and by students? We believe in the learner-centred pedagogy and we analyse this question from the student’s side. We are focusing on the types of mobile learning. Mobile devices allow the students to develop innovative learning skills. The question is, whether they can leverage these potentials? Do they know the relevant online curriculums, platforms and applications? Do they have incentive for integrating mobile devices in their learning process?
