Abstract

The study of this chapter investigated junior high school pupils' perceptions and self-efficacy of using mobile devices in the learning procedure. A 33-item questionnaire was administered to 91 pupils aged 12-15 years old in different Greek schools. Most of the pupils had showed favorable perceptions about the use of mobile devices for educational purposes. Nevertheless, the majority of pupils had a relatively medium degree of self-efficacy of using mobile devices in learning activities. Perceived usefulness was indicated as the major factor in predicting the adoption and use of mobile devices for educational purposes. The higher the level of perceived usefulness pupils have about mobile devices, the higher the possibility to use mobile devices as a learning tool. Pupils were more interested in using mobile devices for learning mathematics, history, English, and ancient Greek language. The findings of this study have implications for secondary education instructors, policy makers, and researchers.
