A challenge! Students are ‘expecting academic staff to take a lead’ in supporting them with ‘learning on the move’ In your view is this what an academic should do? Save to your phone contact list Text your answer in under 160 characters to Debbie (space) then type your answer and press send
Technology is becoming embedded and Wearable…. Talk to the hand…the gloves essentially have a speaker unit inside of the thumb of the glove and a microphone inside the pinky.
Digital Literacies defines those who exhibit a critical understanding and capability for living, learning and working in the digital society JISC (UK) 2013 The EU European Commission, 2011a.

Technology Is ubiquitous (its everywhere!) For Pachler et al (2010:3) it is now accepted that mobile devices have a number of important characteristics which make them attractive from an educational perspective, including increasing portability, functionality, multimedia convergence, ubiquity, personal ownership, social interactivity, context sensitivity, location awareness, connectivity and personalisation
What phone do you have? Samsung? HTC? iPhone?
Mobiles have transformed how we communicate – it’s a new way of life
About sharing Communicating Inside and outside the classroom And learning?
Are we welcoming technology into the classroom? Or are we experiencing digital dissonance?
Thanks to Dr Cristina Costa for sharing the image
“ Whilst most expressed an interest in using in using online technologies to support familiar school activities, such as presentations or for communication, learners seemed cautious about other activities associated with Web 2.0 tools, such as the shared construction of knowledge in a public format “ years olds… have high levels of access to Web 2.0 technologies…little evidence of ground breaking activities and only embryonic signs of criticality, self management to metacognitive reflection” Luckin et al 2009
In teacher training, this learning takes place in the context in which the new skills will be used and this learning can be said to be situated (Lave and Wenger, 1991). Situated learning This what our children do at school!
Outdoor learning Classroom dynamics Personal ownership Bridging home-school divide Collaborative learning What works?
What should our response be? These students are using context based information to work on marketing theory. As they walk into a wifi ‘hotspot’ information is sent to their mobile phone (CONSENS EU project) Narrated examples of three mobile projects available from here:

We use Txttools https://www.txttools.co.uk/prelo ginjsp/index.jsp Example: In FHSCE we have the technology! To text our major project students weekly study tips in class and when out on placement To engage large classes in discussions – like you have done Enhances student satisfaction & minimises low level disruption To get feedback in different contexts
“To possess the machines [they] only need economic capital; to appropriate them and use them in accordance with their specific purpose [they] must have access to embodied cultural capital either in person or by proxy” Bourdieu 1986 The challenge is how to develop the classroom of the future…. And it is a collaboration with our students..
