KakaoTalk meets the ministry of education: Mobile learning in South Korean higher education

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Mobile learning in South Korean higher education is bound in problematic tension between a top-down model of smart learning in the formal space and the sophisticated use of mobile technology and social media in the informal space, use that directly affects the nature and structure of formal disciplinary participation. The aim of this chapter is to explore this tension by providing an overview of the state of mobile technology use in higher education in South Korea, and how that use is in part governed by the informal mobile cultures and practices that have arisen amidst domestically produced mobile technology and mobile applications.
