Abstract:

The paper analyses innovative learning and teaching through mobile learning on a sample of 96 adolescents. A 3-part questionnaire consisted of sociodemographic data, attitudes about mobile learning and media activities and the use of social networks. The research was done in 2019 with vocational school students. 15.1% of them use applications for learning English, while 92.5% use social networks in school work. Girls listen to music, take photos and use social networks significantly more often. Higher achievers are signifi[1]cantly more likely to read e-books, search for information in the media, and are generally more active on all media platforms except social networks. Girls use Snapchat and Instagram significantly more, while boys use Twitch. The use of mobile phones positively correlates with the attitude that it helps with learning, the belief that it can influence the improvement of language skills, and the de[1]sire for additional knowledge about mobile learning
