Presentation for the 79 th NTG Task Group IT & ED Meeting ISN Research Project on Mobile Learning Reto SchilligerDr. Christian Glahn Head of ISN TACCMobile Instructional Design
Background: PfPC ADL WG Operations PfPC ADL WG MOU (1999) > TOR (2009) NTG IT & ED Task Group ADL WG Board Chairman ACT, Education and Training Technologies ADL WG observer «voluntary» «in the Spirit of PfP» «tasks» «mission- oriented» Member + Ukraine + Bulgaria
Just some of the PfPC ADL WG members
Cooperation & Sharing e-Learning Content Methods & Experience Open-Source Tools Key mission of the PfPC ADL WG ADL Capability Building
Free open-source ILIAS LMS (Used by > 10 organizations in NATO countries, including ACT) Free open-source ILIAS SCORM Editor Free open-source multimedia Slideshow Editor Free Content Production Process Kit for training Est. development value* for open-source tools available for free: > 10 M USD (*Core investment in the ILIAS LMS made by non-PfPC parties) Est. development value* for open-source tools available for free: > 10 M USD (*Core investment in the ILIAS LMS made by non-PfPC parties) Current open-source tools
Established ADL Practice in Security and Defense Organizations Mostly learning facts Content centric Multimedia Summative assessment Well supported by SCORM
The world is changing … «Mobile Only Generation»
No Desk No Laptop Mobile Messy Quick Always online (almost) Relaxed Spontane New Standards? > Project TinCan For Fun The world is changing …
Access to reference material and practice items Good vehicle for ADL anytime and anywhere. But: Traditional ADL content wont work 1:1! Built-in communication, GPS, camera etc. Huge potential for new training scenarios! Mobile in many countries better than landlines! New tools for a mobile world
Security issues become of wider concern Need for timely and contextualized data Wisdom of the crowd Real Time Strategic Information
Mobile ADL Initiative ADL Mobile Learning Handbook Judy Brown & Jason Haag (2011) Primary Focus Technology adoption Devices Technology constraints Content adaptation
Mobile Research at ISN Project 2012 Literature/internet research on mobile learning technology and trends International survey on mobile learning readiness in defense and security organizations Prototyping of tool and content demonstrator Research report
Goal of the Survey Key Question What are the key mobile technologies for ADL in security and defense organizations for the next 5-10 years? Roadmap Develop a roadmap for effective use of mobile technologies for ADL in security and defense organizations.
Research Challenges for Mobile Learning (Börner et al. 2010, Glahn & Specht, 2011)
Predicting the Future in Security and Defense Organizations Technology Forecasting Technology adoption today Extent of technology awareness and usage by members of organizations of all ranks! Organizational readiness Conditions for using a technology in an organization
From Research to Practice Organizational Practice (integrated) Organizational Practice (integrated) real ADL Products Applied Research/ Prototypes 5-10 Years Depending on the Organizational Readiness
Underlying study model Measuring Organizational Readiness
We are going to ask … 1/2 Demographics (age, country, rank) Branch (Land, Sea, Air, Administration) Device ownership and use General attitudes towards Learning Mobility Using Mobile devices Personal and organizational technology adoption
We are going to ask 2/2 Mobile learning aspects Access to learning Personalization Orchestrating mobile learning Contextualization Documenting learning Collaboration These help to answer: When can we expect our organizations being ready for these aspects?
Research needs data
This is how you may support our research 1. Survey in English and German ready to launch on SurveyMonkey in two weeks (other languages on demand) 2. Organizations to communicate link and support survey via training website and/or LMS. The more data, the better! 3. You will get a link + a text to communicate the survey 4. The survey will be strictly anonymous.
This is what your organization will get 1. Detailed results for your country (organization) 2. Draft of the final report The results will support you in your strategic planning of mobile learning activities.
