Very few schools in Kenya can afford the luxury of providing digital equipment for STEM Education. Yet, the excitment of E-learning is obvious from the faces of these children!

An acute shortage of digital equipment is a major obstacle to both M-Learning and STEM Education in Kenya

Research Evidence: Prior studies have posted that the 21st century is recognized as an age of learning and was acknowledged to be the age of information and communication technology owing to the revolution of mobile technology. Mobile devices are not only useful for a telephone conversation, researchers shave established that they are amazing educational tools for the teaching and learning process. Indeed, M-learning is a new impression in the field of education. Particularly for the developing nations, M-learning is generating a new wave of educational possibilities and development for sustainable and viable learning options including lowering costs, improving equity, and most importantly improving learner experience.

The Debate: However, there is ensuing debate on a number of dimensions of M-Learning including: – the concept of M-learning, Characteristics, M-Learning System, Types, Significance, Categories of Mobile learning and their Technologies, Disadvantages and Advantages of M-learning. Despite this debate, prior researchers argue that the expansion and continued evolution of modern mobile devices presents an opportunity for much more comprehensive integration of these modern devices into educational settings particularly in the learning of TEM subjects. Whatever it is, the way you tell your story online can make all the difference.

In many schools, dilapidated computers that have not functioned for years are the only devices available for use in ICT classes.

CHAPTER THREE COMPETENCY – BASED CURRICULUM: DEI like other research institutions, asserts that M-learning approach as the next generation of eLearning. M-learning systems will provide easy access and will be widely available to all who wish to be part of it. Subsequently, DEI is focused in both theoretical and field research on Learning as well as the development of Learning systems in harmony with Chapter Three COMPETENCY – BASED CURRICULUM, which recommends use of technology to enhance innovation in the implementation of competency- based curriculum.
