Abstract
Education has been significantly affected by the emergence of new technologies. Appropriate implementation of technology in education can facilitate teaching and learning, increase student engagement and participation, and elevate student achievement. A major practice of technology integration in education is mobile learning, which allows for anytime and anywhere learning through use of mobile devices such as Smartphones and tablets. Due to its convenience, mobile learning has found significant importance in education, particularly in higher education. One of the most promising mobile devices in education is the tablet computer, which is becoming very popular among educators and students. In this theoretical thesis, I will study the effects of educational technology implementation on teaching and learning, with a focus on tablet computers in higher education. I will focus on how tablets benefit education, and why I believe they are a more useful tool in education compared to other mobile devices. To get the best results from implementing tablets in education it is important to have a strategic plan for this implementation. I will briefly look into this subject in this research, but I will not discuss it in detail, as I will be focusing on an earlier stage: why tablets are a promising technology in education?
