Abstract:   (265 Views)
Aims: The purpose of this study was to measure the effect of mobile education on creativity, self-concept and academic self-efficacy of paramedical students in Behbahan.
Method: A quasi-experimental study with pre-test and post-test design. The statistical population of this study included all students of Behbahan Paramedical Faculty who were studying in 2015-2016 and the research sample were radiology students studying in this semester and taking  methods of radiography courses. The sampling method was firstly selected randomly from the faculty majors and the field of radiology was chosen. Then, all the students in the class were evaluated. The dependent variable in this study is mobile education and independent variables were creativity, self-concept and academic self-efficacy.
Results: According to the results of covariance analysis after modifying the pre-test scores, the difference between the experimental and control groups was significant in the variable of creativity, self-concept and self-efficacy. Indeed, the differences in the three components of creativity (fluidity, initiative, flexibility and expansion), and all six components of self-concept (physical, social, rational, moral, educational, and mood) were also significant.
Discussion: The use of mobile phones in the training of the experimental group improved the creativity, self-concept and academic self-efficacy of the subjects in this group in comparison with the control group. Possible reasons for this include the provision of content in small parts, training and repetition with intervals time and timely feedback, and the use of multiple senses, the availability of this device without time and space constraints, the more use of time, the unification of the informal learning environment into the formal.
Keywords: mobile, creativity, self-concept, educational self-efficacy, paramedical students.
