1 Mobile Experimentation Closing an Educational Gap for New Student Generations? Authors: Ricardo Jorge G. da Silva Nunes da Costa Gustavo Ribeiro da Costa Alves Gent, March 2006

2 Ricardo Costa - ECUMICT06 - March Mobile Experimentation 2/11 Presentation outline Introduction Educational Concepts Mobile Experimentation Scenario Technology – Mobile Devices – Wireless Networks Remote Lab Infrastructure Requirements Example of a Simple Mobile Experiment Conclusions

3 Ricardo Costa - ECUMICT06 - March Mobile Experimentation 3/11 Introduction Technology: – is the major change factor of society; – improves peoples lives; – gives flexibility to access knowledge; – incentives developing new applications for the teaching/learning process. Time Line: technology vs educational concepts:

4 Ricardo Costa - ECUMICT06 - March Mobile Experimentation 4/11 Educational Concepts Mobile Experimentation: is the access to remote experiments using mobile devices, like mobile phones, PDAs and smartphones, focus on the improvement of education in engineering and sciences areas. Mobility Flexibility Availability Just-In-Time-Learning

5 Ricardo Costa - ECUMICT06 - March Mobile Experimentation 5/11 Mobile Experimentation Scenario

6 Ricardo Costa - ECUMICT06 - March Mobile Experimentation 6/11 Characterizing Technology Mobile Devices

7 Ricardo Costa - ECUMICT06 - March Mobile Experimentation 7/11 Characterizing Technology Wireless Networks

8 Ricardo Costa - ECUMICT06 - March Mobile Experimentation 8/11 Remote Lab Infrastructure Requirements

9 Ricardo Costa - ECUMICT06 - March Mobile Experimentation 9/11 Example of a Simple Mobile Experiment

10 Ricardo Costa - ECUMICT06 - March Mobile Experimentation 10/11 Conclusions Mobile Experimentation: gives more benefits for engineering and sciences e-courses; gives more flexibility, mobility and motivation to students for running remote experiments; requires the use of an architecture based in a XML layer for developing versatile software applications, beneficial for teachers and students.
