Characteristics of mobile learning e learning learning of mobile exist? s: ts ery sed Occasional reality Traditional / transmissive?                Assessment / testing    Fixed learning Static classroom Leave your community Delayed Absent Teacher centred Not responsive to a need Controlled Regulated by someone else Uncomfortable Content consumption Stagnant / Rigid Boooooring Individualistic / independent / isolated Standardised No access to resources / closed / not Disconnected – offline Spoon feeding Mobile learning? Bad mobile learning? Opportunity / Optimum                   Situational Learning Anywhere Within your community instead of needing When you need to stay put Immediate Availability Student Centred Responsive to a need Autonomous Self-regulated Comfortable Content creation – some form?

  24. 24. Issues and barriers to mobile learning  3 groups
  25. 25. e = ed – ity nd  Issues and challenges     Presumption students good at social media – can be translated into a study desk environment – skills? --- Translate into the classroom and into learning. Collaboration or collusion – sage on the stage not all teachers comfortable with becoming facilitator and relinquishing control – use digital literacies of students to support other students TIME & effort  Not that easy to figure out – students are not always plug and play – instructions & training –  Learning anywhere anytime depends on the type of knowledge you are trying to learn – what type of content appropriate for mobile ing students a son to access study desk Where is the boundary?   Not sufficient facilitation for students in discussions in online environments Students don’t know until they are assessed – if they are interpreting it the right way? Transactional design – integrated with learner design – more attracted to content design according to what learner wants - Using the features of what learners want Ease of use Comes straight to my mobile Convenient
