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.

Prospective Teachers—Are They Already Mobile?

Prospective Teachers—Are They Already Mobile? | BYOD and mobile learning | Scoop.it

Abstract.
This research study investigated the prospective teachers purposes of using mobile phones and laptops, as well as the significant differences across genders and grades. Furthermore the frequency of connecting to Internet via both mobile devices was investigated comparatively. The study was designed based on cross-sectional survey and casual-comparative methodologies in order to first determine specific characteristics of the relevant  population, and to determine the possible causes for differences in terms of variables investigated. A total of 650 prospective Turkish teachers participated in the study. The results point out that, compared to mobile phones, laptops were used more frequently for various purposes, particularly the educational ones. However, in-class use of both laptops and mobile phones for educational  purposes was not very common. Mobile phones were used less for educational  purposes, but more for communication and entertainment purposes. Though there were statistically significant differences in terms of some purposes, given the lack of practical significance, both male and female prospective teachers can be said to use mobile phones and laptops for various purposes with similar frequencies. The same was also true for the grade variable: all prospective teachers from 1st to 4th  years used mobile phones and laptops for various  purposes with similar frequencies in practice. The present study also revealed that, for prospective teachers, connecting to the Internet via mobile phones is not very common and even significantly less common than doing so via laptops. The findings in general suggested a need to raise awareness among  prospective teachers about the mobile learning potential of mobile phones in general and in-class use of laptops in particular.

Start with a Question: How Mobile Devices Made a Difference in Theater Class

Start with a Question: How Mobile Devices Made a Difference in Theater Class | BYOD and mobile learning | Scoop.it

Mobile devices are integral to educating students in all content areas at all grade levels. I’m certainly not asserting that tablets and smartphones are exclusively the way to educate our children. But when our society uses them to communicate, do business, and share our personal triumphs and sorrows every minute of every day, shouldn’t our children be learning to do these same things in school? If academics are meant to help children participate in the world around them, they need to be proficient in the technologies used to participate.
