The purpose of this study is to develop a mobile learning system for Pingtung Matzu (Taiwan Buddha) culture for 5th grade students to understand the local geography and history as well as to estimate the effects of the system and studentspsila satisfaction. The system was designed with a HSDPA (3.5G) wireless mobile and an Eee PC mobile learning device. The system employed an interactive function which allowed the social studies teacher to intervene when students needed assistance. The system was piloted by six 5th grade students and nine teachers. The results of this study indicate that (1) students tend to focus on tasks when the collaborative learning dialogue of the system intervene, (2) the mobile learning technology improves for studentspsila learning, (3) the font of Eee PC was too small and uncomfortable for long watching; and (4) users need more practice with the Chinese keyboard.
