Allan's Blog - The Pedagogy Wheel

Allan's Blog - The Pedagogy Wheel | BYOD and mobile learning | Scoop.it

I have added 62 iPad apps to the wheel and put them where they could serve the pedagogy. These are not necessarily the best app for the job and many of the apps can be used in different realms but it is a good start. I hope it helps you rethink the iPad’s use in Learning and Teaching… it is not about the tool nor the app … it’s all about the students.

Thanks Jeff. BTW you might also be interested in the podcast episode I did with Prof Geoff Scott of the Uni of Western Sydney. He has done years of research into graduate capabilities (aka values or attributes) It is fascinating stuff in the context of Technology Enhanced Learning and Teaching. This is what the respective industries in the market place want in graduates. Duh! Look at the list and ask yourself are they being developed instudents from HE or in education in general ... this is why mapping is so important. Are we equipping graduates to excel and make a difference .... hmmm! Have a look and listen to http://tinyurl.com/alsltblog. "If you exercise these capabilities ... you will be employed!" This sort of stuff makes the CAMERA method worth developing don't you think? regards Allan

BYOD and mobile learning

BYOD and mobile learning | BYOD and mobile learning | Scoop.it

Welcome! Bring your own device (BYOD) is using the powerful computing devices that most students are now bringing to classes to enrich the learning experience. Also mobile learning (mLearning) allows students to access their courses, be creative and learn anywhere now. This topic explores both BYOD and mLearning opportunities for teaching staff and students.

 

This topic is curated by staff in Learning Environments at the University of Melbourne, along with invited colleagues.

M-learning Applications: Changing the Face of Corporate Training - Thinkmobiles

M-learning Applications: Changing the Face of Corporate Training - Thinkmobiles | BYOD and mobile learning | Scoop.it
In the world where information plays a key role, corporations are in constant research of the most effective means of team learning. No more need for tones of books, long lectures and big auditoriums; the strategy of m-learning has revolutionized the idea of team education. Accessible, flexible, interactive, cost-saving… and surely much more effective, m-learning applications meet the demands of both the employers and the employees.

The global mobility makes mobile devices the preferred tool to access and consume the content. At this stage, the number of mobile devices exceeds that of human beings for 600 millions! This figure is considered to grow in the years to come. This is the reason of the steady shift towards mobile learning solutions over the last few years. M-learning application is not just a mobile version of an existing e-learning course. It is an entirely new approach than traditional e-learning and it certainly has many advantages as compared to the traditional  team learning.

Donald Clark Plan B: Why the tablets in schools debacle is over

Donald Clark Plan B: Why the tablets in schools debacle is over | BYOD and mobile learning | Scoop.it
After the California debacle, schools in five states (Virginia, California, Maine, Texas and North Carolina) are starting to swap out tablets for the laptops they should have purchased in the first place. It started with a survey in Maine, where teachers and students expressed a preference for laptops over tablets. (That’s a novel approach asking the users what they want, as opposed to shoving inappropriate tablets down their throats.) To be exact, 88.5% of teachers and 74% of grade 7-12 students wanted laptops, not iPads. The observations were clear, that while iPads may be appropriate for young children, they are not suitable for older children who need to acquire writing and other more sophisticated skills using tools that don’t work on iPads,

Solar chargers mean you can keep your USB devices full of juice, without having to rely on a mains power supply, or a battery – while using a sustainable source of power. A new wave of chargers has come onto the market.

The way our students engage with and perceive technology, mobile or otherwise, will influence and shape not only how we are expected to provide learning opportunities but how businesses may begin to adapt and adjust. A global economy is only part of that story.

Mobile Consumption vs. Laptop Production

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, January 21, 1:08 PM

It's an interesting premise that laptops are for production and other electronics are for consumption, though Microsoft might have something to say about that with its Surface Pro. After all, Microsoft purports it has the mobility of a tablet with the power and efficiency of a laptop. The lines continue to blur? And if we are working collaboratively using, say Google Docs, at what point are we producing as opposed to consuming the work and ideas of others? In other words, will those lines continue to blur and, if so, what other complications arise for learning, authorship, citation, plagiarism, etc.?
