    Mobile and Wireless Pedagogy, late 2007 Mobile and Wireless Pedagogy, late 2007 Presentation Transcript

    • Wireless and mobile computing: pedagogy and liberal education NITLE workshops to go 2007
    • Plan of the session 2. Hardware 3. Infrastructure 4. Pedagogies emergent 5. Examples 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 Mobile devices with American national security implications (BB via star27)
    • I. Hardware (Still another mandatory mobile Tnkgrl device slide)
    • I. Hardware (How many mandatory mobile device slides can there be?) Carl Berger, Wei Su
    • I. Hardware The Bluetooth cyborg manu contreras
    • II. Infrastructure Medium and long range • 802.11x and Wi-Fi (IEEE) • Proprietary Cellular-Wireless Networks • WiMax • Security: wildly variable
    • II. Infrastructure Short range • PAN: Personal Area Networks • Bluetooth: short-range wireless specification • Infrared (IR) ports for beaming • Offline? – Cabled – Sneakernet
    • The American exception • PC ownership rate • Land lines • Network interop issues • Expectations (Found on BBC site, June 2005)
    • III. Pedagogies Approaching the devices • Small screens • Tricky input • Different interfaces (GIPSY program, VU-SPINlab, 2005 Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam )
    • III. Pedagogies Capture and/or present • Image • Video • Audio • Text (Warbiking,Toronto 2007)
    • III. Pedagogies • Personal intimacy with Emergent pedagogies units • Information on demand • Spatial mapping • Time usage changes • Mobile, multimedia, • Class/world barrier social research reduction
    • III. Pedagogies • Queries to colleagues, More: students researching experts, dbs, faculty, • Googling on demand librarians • Local digital resources • Spatial mapping
    • III. Pedagogies Learning spaces Campus • other sites: library, In the classroom residence hall • one leading pilot • new learning spaces space for wireless • chunks of campus • mode: lecture/lab
    • III. Pedagogies Annotated space External world • writing to removed units • increasingly reachable, • writing to space, present augmenting reality • world as syllabus, (classic: Spohrer's research field quot;Information in Placesquot;) • spatial information: 34 North 118 West
    • III. Pedagogies • Pedagogy: learning spaces, example Volokh Conspiracy, April 2007
    • III. Pedagogies 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.
    • III. Pedagogies More 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
    • III. Pedagogies Multitasking • threats: distraction, wandering index/stimulus • generational issue • practice: shells down, machines open
    • III. Pedagogies Structural pressures • IT: support, pedagogy • Faculty: pedagogy, development, reward • Students: class participation • Library: information literacy, db access • Administration: planning
    • III. Pedagogies Social changes • Swarming: John Arquilla, David Ronfeldt Networks and Netwars: The Future of Terror, Crime, and Militancy (2001) • Smartmobs (Howard Rheingold, 2001)
    • III. Pedagogies Campus life • Informal learning • Social organization • Emergency alerts (voluntary) • That privacy issue
    • IV. Examples Mobile study journaling John Schott, Carleton College, 2006
    • IV. Examples Handhelds for classes • 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
    • IV. Examples Handhelds out of class • Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Amsterdam Real Time: SPINlab's GIPSY project • St. Olaf's Japanese language Clie pilot • Jokkmokk 2004 (HUMlab) • Handhelds and libraries: University of Connecticut Medical Library, Virginia Commonwealth Libraries, British libraries.
    • IV. Examples • 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.htm , http://www.wired.com/gadgets/wireless/news/2002/05/522 , http://www.cmu.edu/computing/wireless/) …or learning spaces, commons
    • IV. Examples 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…
    • IV. Examples Mobile phones and text Russian Bible class (Pravda 2004) And databases • bioinformatics on the run (BioWAP and WiGiD) (http://www.mobiquran.com)
    • IV. Examples 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/)
