Viewing mobile learning from a pedagogical perspective | Kearney

Viewing mobile learning from a pedagogical perspective | Kearney | TELT | Scoop.it

Article on mobile learning in teacher education from a socio-cultural perspective, Research in Learning Technology (ALT), 2012.

 

Abstract:

 

Mobile learning is a relatively new phenomenon and the theoretical basis is currently under development. The paper presents a pedagogical perspective of mobile learning which highlights three central features of mobile learning: authenticity, collaboration and personalisation, embedded in the unique timespace contexts of mobile learning. A pedagogical framework was developed and tested through activities in two mobile learning projects located in teacher education communities: Mobagogy, a project in which faculty staff in an Australian university developed understanding of mobile learning; and The Bird in the Hand Project, which explored the use of smartphones by student teachers and their mentors in the United Kingdom. The framework is used to critique the pedagogy in a selection of reported mobile learning scenarios, enabling an assessment of mobile activities and pedagogical approaches, and consideration of their contributions to learning from a socio-cultural perspective.

LANGUAGE LEARNING AND SOCIAL MEDIA – 6 Key dialogues | eLearning

LANGUAGE LEARNING AND SOCIAL MEDIA – 6 Key dialogues | eLearning | TELT | Scoop.it

" Empowering future language learners: Formal and informal language learning through social media" Webinar recording available.

 

As the intensive use of new mobile technologies and social media constantly changes the landscape of language education, this webinar addresses challenges and controversies concerning the use of social media for language learning in formal and informal contexts.

- Are the borders between formal and informal language learning disappearing due to the increasing use of social media in formal education?

- How is the use of ICT and social media shaping new ways of language learning in formal and informal education contexts?

- How do language teachers cope with the incorporation of ICT in their classrooms?

- Do they receive enough training on how to innovate pedagogy through technology?

- Does the predominance of the English language in social media have a negative impact on the adoption of social media in teaching languages other than English?

 

Invited speakers:

Pierre-Antoine Ullmo, P.A.U. Education, Barcelona, Spain

Stylianos Mystakidis, University of Patras, Greece

Pere Arcas, Catalan TV, Barcelona, Spain

A Day In The Life - EFL CLASSROOM 2.0 | TELT | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

 

Nice short (2min 45sec) video, no speech, showing one man going about his day.

 

David Deubelbeiss suggests using it for speaking/writing about daily routines: "Ask students to describe (as you play) or write (during / after) what this guy does in his day. Nice, real context for practicing speaking about routines."  But it could just as easily be using for describing what is happening at the present time, to practice present continuous or for fluency.
