    Abstract

    Today’s students are fascinated by computer and console video games. Computer game-based learning has gained increasing acceptance and has been applied as an option to classroom lecturing. Educational use of handheld game consoles such as Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) and Nintendo Dual Screen (NDS) also gain much attention in many places. However, research on the use of these applications in Thai colleges is scarce. This paper aims to examine the features, characteristics, advantages and educational use of PSP and NDS consoles, and to examine the learning and teaching with technology in Thai colleges. This paper also proposes a conceptual model of the adopting of these two kinds of handheld game consoles in Thai college learning environment.
