Great article on classroom management of  mobile devices.

Bronwyn Desjardins's curator insight, March 22, 4:07 AM

The key to good classroom management has and always will be the "two eyes, two feet" technique. You have to be mobile and walk around the room. Off-task Behaviour occurs when teachers disengage.

Mobile Marketing Isn't About Screens or Devices, It's About Behavior

too many brands are treating the mobile marketplace as a unified whole, relying on lowest-common-denominator creative, instead of adapting to each device.
Kim Flintoff's insight:

While this piece focusses on mobile in a marketing context it does raise some interesting questions that can be redirected towards and educational setting.

 

Learning is also about user (learner) behaviour so how do we as educators shape the mobile experiences that are part of a contemporary teaching and learning strategy?

ny organisation 774 million people worldwide -- more than double the population of the United States -- cannot read and write.  

Illiteracy is rampant, but it is also highly concentrated in a few countries, where poverty, conflict, and poor health care often complicate efforts to provide education. For example, in Sub-Saharan Africa, the number of illiterate people has increased by 40% since 2000, despite significant gains in other global regions.

Kim Flintoff's insight:

Any Educational organisation contemplating global reach and engagement would be well advised to consider the implications of this report.

Why You Should Care About M-Learning

Why You Should Care About M-Learning | Mobile Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Mobile learning is becoming increasingly popular in the workplace. There are a variety of reasons for this, but many have to do with the accessibility of mobile devices, the savings associated with a mobile enabled learning program, and the convenience mobile learning affords the learner. In fact, today if there is a learning management system (or courses) that do not perform on mobile devices, it is borderline in-excusable. In five years time, it will be flat-out archaic."

Good article about why companies need to start adopting mobile training. Some of the information echoes what I have in my e-learning presentation slides from last week! Technology is moving fast, and we have to move fast with it or fall severely behind. The infographic in this article is rather good.

Students’ Perceptions and Experiences of Mobile Learning | Mobile Learning in Higher Education | 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.

Why Mobile Learning Is Inevitable - Edudemic | Mobile Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Mobile learning is not only on the rise, it’s inevitable.

As you can see in the presentation below (there’s just 24 slides, pretty easy to scroll through and worth it!) the number of smartphones being sold is soaring while other hardware (desktops, for example) are slumping. That might be why I’m not expecting any majorly exciting things out of next week’s WWDC announcement(s) by Apple. They’re expected to show off new Macbooks and perhaps an internet radio service.
