Abstract

Education has undergone major changes in recent years in conjunction with the development of computers and information and communication technology (ICT) networks. This has enhanced access to global information and communication systems. Therefore, the number of resources available to today's students at all levels of education has been enhanced. In its early form, computers and ICT applications in education were implemented as e-learning which has transformed education. The rise in Internet availability and the continual transformation occurring in software and telecommunication services has led to the ability to connect everything with anything. One of the first opportunities that arose was the concept of mobile and ubiquitous computing which has become the basis for mobile e-learning (me-learning) and ubiquitous learning (u-Learning). U-Learning has the potential to alter education in a sustainable manner and remove many of the constraints in education. This will allow customization according to students' needs using embedded modeling and simulation (M&S) on demand. Hence, this paper presents an integrative concept for teaching with enhanced technology.
