Abstract

In recent years, smart devices have changed the paradigm of education. However, the educational environment and teaching methods could not catch up with this fast improvement and an utmost need for development of educational methods has been realized. In this paper, the general usage of smart devices by elementary school teachers is analyzed and the methods through which smart devices are utilizing smart learning is discussed in the result. A survey of 221 elementary school teachers in Gangwon Province showed that 87.7% of them are currently using smart devices. In addition, teachers were using smart devices with not much difference from ordinary people. The three main motives of teachers who were already using smart devices and those who were planning to take advantage of smart devices were innovativeness, usability and easiness. The reason of need to apply smart devices in education is because of its functionality in various learning types, courses and teaching-learning process methods. Although smart devices have a high efficacy in education but they are not widely utilized yet. In order to solve these problems and be able to take more advantage of smart devices in education, teachers should learn how to use smart devices and a strong sense of willingness is required to make changes in the educational methods. The results of this research on elementary school teachers can be further developed for a greater smart device based smart learning.
