Jude OSAKWE, Nomusa DLODLO, Nobert JERE

There has been an unprecedented growth in the number of mobile devices in recent years. This spread and prevalence of mobile devices has promoted the popularity of mobile applications. This has instigated the need to understand the usage pattern of mobile devices particularly among high school teachers and learners. This paper reports on the results of a survey of one hundred and twenty (120) high school learners and twenty four (24) high school teachers in the Erongo region of Namibia drawn from three different high schools. This research is conducted in order to find out the usage pattern of mobile devices and to ascertain the possibility of its adoption in Namibian High Schools. This study is expected to establish an understanding of the usage patterns based on its benefit for pedagogy.
