Therefore, since it is important to provide various learning content in this paper, we utilize text mining techniques to obtain appropriate information and refine and categorize the meaning. On-line, they want to study a system that provides a variety of content in the academic field that learners are trying to acquire.

  • In this paper, we try to criticize a bias that liberal arts are not practical. First, I introduce holistic models of knowledge and constructivism in education. Second, I suggest 'linguistic turn' as another noticeable phenomenon. Language is an element of culture, but a priviledged one because culture, in itself, is linguistic. So culture is a sort of a text. We can see that liberal arts or humanities to deal with texts, contexts and languages can have an important role to read, understand and construct a world. So the rediscovery of the traditional model of the education of liberal arts like processes of graduating studies of liberal arts or humanities, is relevant to a new 'practical' model of reading and leading recent social transformations. An important point is academic contribution. And current situation called 'Knowledge-Based Society' also supports my point in another way. The situation of rapidly changing knowledge requires an education of problem-solving ability by unifying and reconstructing knowledge supporting with constructivism in education rather than the cramming system of education.

  • This study aims to prove the value of convergence-based mobile English curriculum for English education prior to its practical use. This is deferent from the existing studies in developing and studying a curriculum using an English program loaded in mobile to make an effective English learning. In order to find out how well teachers are aware of this curriculum, we performed qualitative researches. Some English teachers asked for feedback about the curriculum gave us positive feedback in most areas such as learning authentic English, repetition effects, cooperative learning, self-efficacy experience, and so on. As a negative feedback, they were afraid of students' easy and free attitudes because of the new learning environments. This problem can be solved by the very close communications between teacher and student through on and off line. Next time applying this curriculum to the field and analyzing will be expected.
