  • Abstract


    Assessing whether digital mobile e-learning affects school efficiency is an important yet complex issue. Consequently, the goal of this research is to evaluate the effect of innovative teaching on school efficiency through a data envelopment analysis (DEA) of digital mobile e-learning in a high school in Taiwan. Additionally, we used the grey relational analysis (GRA) model to find the main influencing factors. The empirical findings can briefly be summarized as follows: (1) Importing digital mobile e-learning can greatly enhance the efficiency of school management. (2) The GRA model found factors affecting the school’s operational efficiency in a clear and important relationship between the school size, teacher-student ratio, technical teacher ratio, school location, and school high-vocational attribute, all of which are shown to be important determinants affecting the efficiency of school management. Among these, school size seems to be closely connected to digital mobile e-learning. The results of this research can also serve as a reference for educational authorities when formulating policies and regulations to promote digital mobile e-learning.
