1 LEARNING ON THE GO! "You know, it's funny - I read so much about teachers trying to find ways to get students' attention, and when they find a device - a communication device - that captures students' attention, they want to ban it.“ Stephen Downes

2 Outline  Some Statistics  Concept of Mobile Learning  Type of Mobile Learning  Case Studies  Hands On  Group Work

3 Access to cellular networks Currently, ~90% of the world’s population 7.5 Billions by end of Billions by end of 2016

4 Current Status Exploring Students' Mobile Learning Practices in Higher Education (Educause, 2013)

7 Types of Mobile Learning

8 Individual Mobile Learning  Original course work: usually in some combination of text, audio, and visual components.  Skill practice: writing drafts of papers, recording oral practicing of everything from vocabulary practices to speeches.  Research: using Internet access to find source content.  Content capture: taking notes, recording audio/visual content.

9 Peer-to-Peer or Peer-to-Instructor  Posting questions or work products on shared websites, sending files to peers or instructors.  Sending s, texts to peers or instructors to get fast answers to questions, checking on assignments, setting up meetings.

10 Group Sharing Mobile Learning  Using social networking sites/shared websites to collaborate with others anywhere in the world.

11 Mobile Myths  Mobile devices have screens too small to allow for learning  There are no consistent standards for mobile learning  Mobile devices are unsuitable for learning as they are a distraction  Mobile learning is just ‘learning on the move’  Students with disabilities cannot use mobile devices for learning

12 Mobile Myths (2)  Mobile learning means content delivered in bite-sized chunks  Young people already know how to use mobile devices for learning  Mobile devices cannot be relied upon for learning as they are likely to be lost, broken or stolen  Content on mobile devices cannot be as secure as on desktop computers  Mobile learning is an expensive option

18 Case Studies

19 Case Study Class Level: Freshmen / Sophomores Course: Academic Writing Objectives:  Create videos showing main elements that are important for the Lebanese Identity Description:  Groups of 5  Act out the differences and pay attention to the props they use (clothing, settings, language, body language…)  Videotape  Share on Moodle Challenges:  Time to train on logistics  Time to prepare videos  Internet Connections and Video size

20 Final Recommendatins  Provide clear explanations of technologies learners are expected to use (support available and educational benefits)  Ensure essential course information and learning resources are available via the VLE (expected by learners as a minimum)  Offer ‘tasters’ of potentially innovative learning activities that learners can try online  Explore what colleagues are doing to ensure a level of consistency for learners in their experience of technology  Treat new technologies as an opportunity to share skills (some learners may be highly proficient while others are unsure)  Recognise that how the use of technology is explained to learners is of critical importance
