Abstract:


The concept of situation awareness is essential in enhancing collaborative learning. Learners require information from different awareness aspects to deduce a learning situation for decision-making. Designing learning environments that assist learners to understand situation awareness via monitoring actions and reaction of other learners has been reported to be beneficial in enhancing collaborative learning. An emerging learning mode is mobile Web 2.0 learning where Web 2.0 tools support mobile learning – allowing for personalization, ubiquity and social connectivity in learning. Thus, the study investigates and models learner situation awareness in collaborative mobile Web 2.0 learning. Participants were novice teacher trainees in a local university. The study was conducted over a four-month period. Data were collected via questionnaires and analyzed by PLS-SEM analysis. The results revealed that learner situation awareness in collaborative mobile Web 2.0 learning is reflected by six factors: learning reflection, learning space, learning community, social, task, and personal awareness. Results also showed that learners perceived learning reflection awareness as the most important factor
