Mobile and wireless computing and pedagogy, April 2007 Mobile and wireless computing and pedagogy, April 2007 Presentation Transcript

  • Wireless and mobile computing: pedagogy and liberal education NITLE workshop April 2007 College of Wooster
    • Plan of the session
    • Hardware
    • Infrastructure
    • Case studies
    • Pedagogies emergent
    http://www.phonebashing.com/ , 2003 (previous image: “Telezonia”)
  • One way of looking at it
    • All of Web 2.0, just more so
    • Ambient
    • Accelerating
    • Annotating
    Funeral of John Paul, AP
  • I. Hardware
    • Wireless computing uses the radio spectrum, rather than telephone or ethernet cables, to send digital information. The name hearkens back to the earliest days of radio, and appropriately, since wireless computing is very much a young field.
  • I. Hardware
    • (Mandatory mobile device slide)
  • I. Hardware
    • (Yet another mandatory mobile device slide)
    Long., MPH, ksmichel
  • I. Hardware
    • (Still another mandatory mobile device slide)
    Tnkgrl
  • I. Hardware
    • (How many mandatory mobile device slides can there be?)
    Carl Berger, Wei Su
  • II. Infrastructure
    • 802.11x and Wi-Fi (IEEE)
    • Proprietary Cellular-Wireless Networks
    • WiMax
  • II. Infrastructure
    • PAN: Personal Area Networks
    • Bluetooth: short-range wireless specification
    • Infrared (IR) ports for beaming
    • (Found on BBC site, June 2005)

  • III. Case studies
    • Pedagogies: new forms
    John Schott, Carleton College, 2006
  • III. Cases
    • Handhelds in class: Stanford Medical classes, East Carolina University's Center for Wireless and Mobile Computing, medical school, OWLS, UM Duluth's handheld pilot, Western Carolina University - Wireless Palm (TLT report), Pittsburgh Pebbles Project; University of South Dakota.
  • III. Cases
    • Handhelds out of class
    • Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Amsterdam Real Time: SPINlab's GIPSY project
    • St. Olaf's Japanese language Clie pilot ( http://www.stolaf.edu/depts/asian-studies/japanese/handheldarticle.html )
    • Jokkmokk 2004 (HUMlab)
  • III. Cases
    • Handhelds and libraries: University of Connecticut Medical Library, Virginia Commonwealth Libraries, British libraries.
  • III. Cases
    • Campus clouds: American University's wireless campus, Carnegie Mellon's Wireless Andrew, Dartmouth's wireless campus, Seton Hall University
    • ( http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/10.10/dartmouth.html , http://www.wired.com/gadgets/wireless/news/2002/05/52234 , http://www.cmu.edu/computing/wireless/ )
  • III. Cases
    • Students researching
    • SUNY Cortland's nature research.
    • Tremont Consolidated's clam research with Palms ( http://www.wired.com/culture/education/news/2002/11/56102 )
    • Experience has shown that portable and wireless computing facilitates data collection, which has certain pedagogical implications. Students have greater facilities for gathering information from the field, thereby. Field researchers can be better integrated with classes (with each other, instructors, experts) through wireless communication:
  • III. Cases
    • Cell phones: bioinformatics on the run (BioWAP and WiGiD); Russian Bible class ( Pravda 2004-12, http://english.pravda.ru/main/18/90/363/11765_phone.html )
  • III. Cases
    • iPaqs, University of Minnesota Duluth, 2002
    • uses in class: notetaking, .ppt slides, exercises, polling, reference
    • uses outside of class: browsing, email, software
      • ( http://www.d.umn.edu/itss/computing/ipaq/ )
  • IV. Pedagogies
    • Emergent pedagogies
    • Information on demand
    • Time usage changes
    • Class/world barrier reduction
    • Personal intimacy with units
    • Spatial mapping
    • Mobile, multimedia, social research
  • IV. Pedagogies
    • Students researching
    • Googling on demand
    • Local digital resources
    • Queries to colleagues, experts, dbs, faculty, librarians
    • Spatial mapping
  • IV. Pedagogies
    • Pedagogy: learning spaces
    • classroom
    • one leading pilot space for wireless
    • arrangements
    • mode: lecture/lab
    • campus
    • other sites: library, residence hall
    • new learning spaces
    • chunks of campus
  • IV. Pedagogies
    • Pedagogy: learning spaces
    • external world
    • increasingly reachable, present
    • world as syllabus, research field
    • annotated space
    • writing to removed units
    • writing to space, augmenting reality (classic: Spohrer's "Information in Places")
    • spatial information: (34 North 118 West /, )
    • Pedagogy: learning spaces, example
    Volokh Conspiracy, April 2007
  • IV. Pedagogies emergent
    • Publishing
    • Synching MP3 player, Palm, PocketPC, etc. user to copy materials from a desktop or laptop to their handhelds (AvantGo, Mazingo, PalmReader, Acrobat for Palm, Fictionwise (free ebooks), Microtitles, Peanut Press, SciFi.com, Writing on Your Palm)
    • USB drives allow easy, person-to-person file trading. Their low price and good size makes them a publishing option.
  • IV. Pedagogies emergent
    • Publishing applications
    • Palm Education offers more than one hundred educational applications. Nearspace has released several campus life applications. ( http:// www.nearspace.com / )
    • One can roll one's own, as well. For example, UMDuluth wrote applications for its Pocket PC pilot.
    • K-12 applications: Cooties, Geney
  • IV. Pedagogies emergent
    • Multitasking
    • threats: distraction, wandering (NYT article abstract)
    • index/stimulus (ECAR study, Slashdot discussion)
    • generational issue
    • practice: shells down, machines open
  • IV. Pedagogies emergent
    • Structural pressures
    • IT: support, pedagogy
    • Faculty: pedagogy, development, reward
    • Students: class participation
    • Library: information literacy, db access
    • Administration: planning
  • IV. Pedagogies
    • Social changes
    • Swarming: John Arquilla, David Ronfeldt Networks and Netwars: The Future of Terror, Crime, and Militancy (2001)
    • Smartmobs (Howard Rheingold, 2001)
