Reflection on research ethics in mobile or tech-enabled learning in the Korean context

Reflection on research ethics in mobile or tech-enabled learning in the Korean context | Ethical Ed Tech | Scoop.it

I stumbled across the above tweet from @meowtree (aka, Linda Raftree) and was intrigued by a few of the points thatJohn Traxler raised in the comments. John always brings a voice to the ethical side of the equation of ICT research and design. As I wade through the research I am doing for my PhD on mobile technology use in Korean higher education, some of these points in particular struck home. So, this is less adding significantly to the points that John has raised, but rather a reflection on how these points are manifested in my context. Since I believe in reflexivity and try to instill that in my students, I need to practice what I preach here in regards to my own research and development as an academic (however defined). So I will broadly discuss a few of John’s points and relate those to my work in the Korean context.

Kids can't use computers... and this is why it should worry you

Kids can't use computers... and this is why it should worry you | Ethical Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Mobile has killed technical competence. We now all carry around computers that pretend to be mobile phones or tablets. Most people don’t even think of their phone as a computer. It’s a device to get quick and easy access to Google. It’s a device that allows us to take photos and post them to Facebook. It’s a device that allows us to play games and post our scores to Twitter. It’s a device that locks away the file system (or hides it from us). It’s a device that only allows installation of sanitised apps through a regulated app store. It’s a device whose hardware can’t be upgraded or replaced and will be obsolete in a year or two.

Is the Facebook generation anti-social? - Telegraph

Is the Facebook generation anti-social? - Telegraph | Ethical Ed Tech | Scoop.it
A new film, The Bling Ring, highlights how teenagers want to broadcast their lives via a screen, rather than savouring the moment. Has this generation lost touch with reality?
Robert Farrow's insight:
According to a University of Winnipeg study, people who text more than 100 times a day are 30 per cent less likely to say that being ethical is important to them than people who text less than 50 times a day. The conclusion: absorption in social media can turn youngsters into careless zombies. No wonder that the US National Institutes of Health found that people in their twenties are nearly three times more likely to exhibit narcissistic personality disorder than Americans over 65.

Students’ Perceptions and Experiences of Mobile Learning

Students’ Perceptions and Experiences of Mobile Learning | Ethical Ed Tech | Scoop.it

This study focused on how students perceive the use of mobile devices to create a personalized learning experience outside the classroom. Fifty-three students in three graduate TESOL classes participated in this study. All participants completed five class projects designed to help them explore mobile learning experiences with their own mobile devices, incorporating technologies such as YouTube and VoiceThread. We identified characteristics of these mobile users in Mobile Language Learning (MLL), and the results illuminate how MLL opens up new pedagogical scaffoldings.

I get so excited when I see more developments on tyring to intergrate technology and education. This is because by combining learning with education, scholars get the opportunity of understanding academics through everyday technology such as their mobile phones. This article also interests me because I am interested in finding out how technology can assist teachers in making subjects such as maths and science more easier for learners.

Street Ghosts project - Google Street View made Street Art and Public Concern

Street Ghosts project - Google Street View made Street Art and Public Concern | Ethical Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Street Ghosts, artist’s statement:


In this project, I exposed the specters of Google’s eternal realm of private, misappropriated data: the bodies of people captured by Google’s Street View cameras, whose ghostly, virtual presence I marked in Street Art fashion at the precise spot in the real world where they were photographed.

 

Street Ghosts hit some of the most important international Street Art “halls of fame” with low-resolution, human scale posters of people taken from Google Street View. These images do not offer details, but the blurred colors and lines on the posters give a gauzy, spectral aspect to the human figures, unveiling their presence like a digital shadow haunting the real world.

Robert Farrow's insight:

Kinda spooky! But mainly because this feels like an invasion of privacy but it's not much different to what Google do every day... :/

GRIAL Univ Salamanca's curator insight, May 12, 2013 11:25 AM

The report published by Grunwald Associates and the Learning First Alliance with support from AT&T, found that, according to data from a representative nationwide sample of nearly 2,400 parents, more than four in five K-12 students at least occasionally use some sort of computing device, including mobile devices like tablets or smartphones, or laptop computers.

Carmen Cantillo Valero's curator insight, June 5, 2013 1:19 PM
Los padres quieren que los niños utilicen los dispositivos móviles en las escuelas

El informe publicado por Grunwald Associates  refuerza este punto de vista.

"La ubicuidad de la tecnología móvil en la vida cotidiana queda patente en este estudio. Las familias poseen múltiples dispositivos, incluso las que no son favorecidos ".

"Cuando se trata de dispositivos móviles y educación, la mayoría de los padres cree que estos dispositivos abren oportunidades de aprendizaje, benefician el aprendizaje y pueden involucrar a los estudiantes en el aula. Muchos padres creen que los móviles y sus aplicaciones ayudan a desarrollar las habilidades académicas y los contenidos".
