Switching between productive multitasking and distraction: A case study of how users adapt to mobile tablet devices - Digital Culture & Education

The main methods of dealing with such challenges were either to physically disconnect themselves from the device or to plan ahead and manage the anticipated distractions.
Claire McDonnell's insight:

This study is interesting because it was longitudinal and was conducted over the course of one year. The 35 Australian college students who participated were found to develop methods to reduce unproductive distractions that could develop when using their tablets for learning purposes.

The introduction to the paper provides a comprehensive overview of the related literature.

PeerWise shows benefits in practice
Claire McDonnell's insight:

Very useful review by David Read on an article just published by Galloway and Burns. Their study in the University of Nottingham showed the effectiveness of using Peerwise to provide a peer-learning environment in which first years undertook an end of module revision exercise.

5 Reasons To Allow Digital Devices In Your Classroom | GradHacker @insidehighered | Technology Enhanced Learning, Teaching & Assessment | Scoop.it
Claire McDonnell's insight:

Some perspectives that it's important to remember here; some learners need to use digital devices and there's an environment friendly consideration as well. I think the incorporation of mobile devices as part of classroom activities could be emphasised more though. Search engines and Google translate are mentioned but there are lots of other useful online applications such as polling software and many discipline specific online resources

Mark Carty's curator insight, December 8, 2014 5:07 PM

I have been making a conscious effort over the last year to provide learning material which can be easily accessed on mobile devices. An awareness of universal design is crucial when supporting the online learner.

 

I have also been making an effort to aim for zero printing in my own TELTA studies. This is proving slightly more challenging than I anticipated, some forward planning is involved to ensure notes are available offline. I have been experimenting with highlighting and note-taking apps on Android, I find that a Google Drive, Adobe Reader, Evernote workflow works well.
