Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative: Mobile Learning | Mobile Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
The ADL Mobile Learning Team strives to be the source of information and support for DoD mobile learning initiatives. Effective usage of handheld devices can improve personalized learning and enable learning at the point of need. The Mobile Learning capability supports both the Next Generation Learning Environment and Next Generation Learner of ADL's research and development strategies.

The future capabilities for education and training with ubiquitous access to connected devices cannot be overestimated and will continue to expand.

While mobile learning is not appropriate in all instances, we believe that it should be considered as an important part of the total learning and training support infrastructure. Want to stay up-to-date on Mobile Technology in Learning? Subscribe to our free weekly e-mail newsletter!

Mobile learning: Moving past the myths and embracing the opportunities | Brown | The International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning

Mobile learning: Moving past the myths and embracing the opportunities | Brown | The International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning | Mobile Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Abstract

Mobile learning (mLearning) in the open and distance learning landscape, holds promise and provides exciting new opportunities. In order to understand and embrace these opportunities within various contexts and circumstances it is imperative to understand the essence of the phenomenon. In this regard, we first need to understand the core fundamentals of mLearning and gain insight in what mLearning entails.

Using critical reflection, this paper clarifies what mLearning is by invalidating myths and misperceptions related to mLearning. Acknowledging the lessons learnt through past experience, the authors then explore the opportunities that mLearning provides. mLearning challenges and risks are discussed to assist those who are keen to embrace these opportunities, in avoiding unnecessary risks and pitfalls. The paper concludes by sharing a few thoughts on the future of mLearning.

These perspectives on mLearning seek to provide an overview of what mobile learning entails, recognise the achievements of mobile learning to date, and stimulate an appetite to embrace the opportunities in open and distance learning, while minimising the potential negative effects of technological, social and pedagogical change.

Moving past the myths of mobile learning - eCampus News

Moving past the myths of mobile learning - eCampus News | Mobile Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
By now, educators are familiar with the term mLearning, having experienced its rush in classroom popularity starting as early as 2000. But two researchers say it’s now imperative that educators slough off the myths from the reality to avoid ineffective classroom practice moving forward.

“In recent years, many projects have assisted in the maturation of mLearning and much has already been done to integrate mLearning into mainstream education. However, mLearning is still in its infancy and we are merely seeing the tip of the iceberg,” notes Tom Brown, associate professor of research and development in tech-enhanced learning at the University of South Africa , Pretoria (UNISA), and co-author of the report (title is at the time of this report’s publication. He is currently CEO of a portfolio management company).

ingredients-successWhy are some mobile learning implementations successful while others struggle? It seems struggling districts are missing at least one of a handful of ingredients that successful districts have in common. When it comes to mobile learning success, leaving out just one key ingredient can ruin an otherwise perfect recipe.

What are these ingredients? They can be categorized as: leadership, strategy, and expectations management.

As more and more children bring personal mobile devices to school, schools struggle to formulate policies that acknowledge their power as learning tools. Until quite recently, policy often simply prohibited the use of mobile phones in any form while on school grounds, despite parental approval for students to carry them for personal safety and convenience.

Four Important Considerations for Development of Mobile Serious Games by Mason Martin : Learning Solutions Magazine

Four Important Considerations for Development of Mobile Serious Games by Mason  Martin : Learning Solutions Magazine | Mobile Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
“With mobile devices showing an increasing presence in online corporate training, it is vital to develop for these mobile devices first, not as an afterthought.”

As mobile devices are becoming more and more prevalent in corporate training, and companies are adopting bring your own device (B.Y.O.D.) policies, design and development considerations for mobile applications are evolving. While some software products claim to allow you to design and develop training that can be exported to all devices, this strategy does not always work for all online training.

This year’s report, Digital Learning 24/7: Understanding Technology – Enhanced Learning in the Lives of Today’s Students, provides landmark findings on the efficacy and value associated with popular digital learning initiatives: blended learning, online learning, school-assigned mobile devices and STEM learning.  The views, values and experiences of students taking part in these digital learning initiatives are compared with students in more traditional classroom-based education.
“We hope by highlighting the views and values of today’s students, especially those students who are living a digital learning experience, this year’s report stimulates new discussions around the effective use of digital tools, resources and content to support student learning,” said Julie Evans CEO of Project Tomorrow.

The Current State: Mobile Learning

The Current State: Mobile Learning | Mobile Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Mobile is still treated like a toy rather than a serious device.

This is despite the fact that mobile is more contextual, more powerful and packed withmore affordances than any PC. Somehow if it doesn’t have a keyboard or mouse it doesn’t seem to count. Mobile just doesn’t seem to justify investment in the eyes of most IT departments. This is despite the fact that the mobile device we have in out pockets is in most cases newer and more powerful than the junky PC we, and our students, are working on. Compare working with video on your phone vs your PC. Which one struggles? Which one drops frames? Which one renders longers?

The underlying fact is that mobile represents a significant change – in the type of technology, the kinds of affordances it makes available and more importantly, in the way we interact with it.
