2 What will we talk about? Tablet – context Affordances and e-pedagogies Mummies – Windows tablets in Museum Studies War Zones – one-iPad-per-distance-Criminology- Masters-student Pompeii – Archaeology field research with iPads Does the mobile framework help?

3 What is it about tablets in learning? Functionality and portability PDA Mobile phone Mp3 player Netbook E- Reader Tablet Psion Organiser -------- 1984 iPad 2010 iPod -----------iPhone-----------i 2001 2007 Handheld device Timeline Microsoft ------ Tablet PC 2000

4 iPad: Gamechanger in education Photo by Shemp65 on Flickr

5 Affordances (Conole & Dyke, 2004) Accessibility Speed of change Diversity Communication and collaboration Reflection Multimodal and non-linear Risk, fragility, uncertainty Immediacy Monopolization Surveillance

6 E-Pedagogies (Conole, 2011) 6 E-Pedagogies A Associative Focus on individual Learning through association and reinforcement Constructivist Building on prior knowledge Task-orientated Situative Learning through social interaction Learning in context Connectivist Learning in a networked environment E-training Drill & practice Mobile learning Inquiry learning Resource-based Experiential Problem-based Role play Reflective & dialogic learning, Personalised learning

7 Mummies: Windows tablets at Museum Studies Photo by University of Leicester

8 Mummies: Windows tablets at Museum Studies Windows tablets Custom app – simply a clever Powerpoint show Info from and video of British Museum staff Field trip and group work Collect photos and impressions on the day Report emailed in by 10am next morning Groups meet for feedback/discussion

9 Mummies: Windows tablets at Museum Studies It seemed ideal to have short, taped discussions about ethical issues by Museum staff – then students could bring the tablets with them, hear what the staff had to say, and analyse and engage in the evidence that they saw. The students didnt blink when we gave the tablets out. …it was unremarkable for them. It was completely normal. (University of Leicester, 2011)

10 Mummies: Windows tablets - negative points Noisy in the museum gallery Battery life Issues with amount, size of text I homemade app Next time will put some material onto VLE

11 War Zones: MSc in Security, Conflict and International Development, Department of Criminology Photo by The USO on Flickrr

12 War Zones: iPads Decision to send each student, anywhere in the world, an iPad Bespoke app (by KuKuApps of Leicester) Simple helpsheet to install the app plus others (Kindle app, Goodreader, iTunesU….) Students work on the go when internet not available App allows multimedia material offline Students still need VLE for assignment submission

13 War Zones: iPads I have realised the iPad is built for this type of distance learning study. 93% iPad useful or very useful part of study pack 8 out of 13 used the app more than VLE Study offline All the additional apps aid learning – iTunes U, mindmapping, note-taking, ebooks Paperless learning Value of multimedia

14 War Zones: iPads - negatives Wifi so intermittent in my area, I need 3G Is it sustainable to keep up with bespoke app? Amazon not available in one country (Sudan?) 1 respondent said they preferred paper only (neither iPad nor VLE)

17 Architectural analysis, survey, 3D modelling (Ray, 2012)

18 Pompeii iPads One-iPad-per-field-researcher Filemaker Go to collect data Sync twice daily Photos and iDraw – take photos, draw layers upon Goodreader – paperless – no lost papers 371% efficiency increase in work completed (Ray, 2012) Special thanks to John Wallrodt for implementing iPads
