Mobile learning has been applied to higher studies in developed countries for more than a decade to ensure a smooth, effective and trouble-free teaching and learning process. Advanced technology has played a vital role in digital learning. This study explored the scenarios of mobile learning in secondary level Bangla medium schools in Bangladesh. It showed the students' reaction or how they feel about it towards mobile learning after they have experienced it. In addition, it also focused on students' perceptions of using mobile devices as their learning tool. Along with this, this study discussed the problems of implementing mobile learning in secondary-level schools in Bangladesh. At the same time, this study tried to give some suggestions and solutions to the implementation problem. This study adopted a qualitative multiple case study research method and the researcher used the purposive technique to collect data and analyse those data. The researcher did member checking, inter-rater reliability, and triangulation to establish credibility and trustworthiness. Moreover, students' perceptions of different aspects of mobile learning, the problems of implementing digital learning and solutions to it have been discussed in this study. The final result showed that students have positive reactions and perceptions towards mobile learning. However, it had some negative sides too. Nevertheless, the findings of this study will be useful for teachers, policy makers, trainers and so on to implement this new way of learning in Bangladesh.
