  • European Mobile Learning SIG meeting http://mlearning.noe-kaleidoscope.org/ October 20, 2007
  • Priorities  Consolidate and grow the mobile learning community recruitment drive  active website   Make formal links to other national and international mobile learning organisations, including Handheld Learning Forum  International Association for Mobile Learning (IAML)   Provide resources for the Kaleidoscope Virtual Doctoral School  Develop shared resources for research shared bibliography  inventory of research projects;   Contribute a mobile learning activity to the Kaleidoscope symposium  Form a durable European Mobile Learning SIG www.noe-kaleidoscope.org 2
  • Recruitment  Now 92 members of the SIG, including two from outside Europe www.noe-kaleidoscope.org 3
  • Alpine Rendezvous  Organised a Workshop on Mobile Learning for 18 people at the Alpine Rendezvous in February  Produced Proceedings of the Workshop www.noe-kaleidoscope.org 4
  • Website  Developed an extensive website for the European Mobile Learning community including: News updates of mobile learning research  Inventory of current and recent projects  Names, contact details and brief biographies of mobile  learning researchers A calendar of international mobile learning events  Resources, including Mobile Learning stamped papers from  TeLearn, presentations, videos, and a bibliography of some 250 entries Links to academic websites and mobile learning companies   Thanks to Rune Baggetun and Tim Jay www.noe-kaleidoscope.org 5
  • Big Issues Report  Produced a professionally designed and printed Big Issues in Mobile Learning report www.noe-kaleidoscope.org 6
  • VDS Workshop  Organised a workshop for 15 PhD students at Växjö University, November 1st -2nd  Its purpose is to elaborate and explore those aspects related to the design, implementation and evaluation of future learning environments supported by mobile technologies. www.noe-kaleidoscope.org 7
  • Kaleidoscope Symposium  Organised a session for the Kaleidoscope Symposium on 26-27th November in Berlin on “Mobile Learning and Beyond”  Workshop, six demonstration slots and an exhibition stand www.noe-kaleidoscope.org 8
  • Other Activities  Contributed materials to the TeLearn archive, including stamping of mobile learning articles (currently 24 entries)  Held this SIG meeting www.noe-kaleidoscope.org 9

  • News October 20, 2007
  • Mobile Learning Towards a research agenda  http://www.wlecentre.ac.uk/cms/files/occasion alpapers/mobilelearning_pachler2007.pdf
  • John Traxler - this year  Microsoft Mobile Learning Summit  MoLeNET launch  Workshops: UK, India, South Africa, Canada  eLearning Africa, DelPHE, Educa, UNESCO   LearningLab
  • Projects  Kenya Ministry of Education  SEMA – evaluation soon  Ministry of Youth Affairs  disengaged youth - perhaps  Bio-Vision – launched yesterday   South Africa MobilED – rolling out 
  • TRIGONE/LIFL - Noce Team  P-LearNet project started early 2007 Funded by French national research agency  3 years  Focused on the use of pervasive technologies for learning in  the context of professional activities Experimentations with sellers, postal services, medical sector  http://p-learnet.univ-lille1.fr 
  • COoperation in Learning COmmunities wireless technologies to support learning geographies in the city Mobile learners @the university pervasive awareness applications to support connectedness We have available some grants for supporting guest researchers NTNU, Trondheim, NORWAY
  • Doctoral Thesis: In Progress Determining the Future of Mobile Learning on Individual and Collaborative Learning Practices: A Delphi Study Mark A.M. Kramer
  • Research Focus: >>People<< Mobility of the Individual Usability Testing - Field Research Ubiquitous & Pervasive Learning Mobile Addiction / dependence Mobile Healthcare Citizen Media
  • Chris Dennett, University of Wolverhampton  Last year: projectBluetooth: Development of an asynchronous multimedia broadcast system for mobile  devices. Bridges the gap between the distance benefits of SMS and the richness,  but expense, of MMS technology. Allows transmission of any multimedia object to phones and PDAs with no  transmission cost. Results soon.   This year: Spatial & Temporal Context Aware Systems Developing generic wireless sensor network technology, essentially a  classroom in a suitcase. Hardware establishes spatial context, using concept similar to ‘active  badges’ worn by students and mote technology to detect their proximity to points of interest. Software establishes temporal context using rule based engine to infer  topics of interest and continuation across multiple environments Live transmission to user owned handsets and creation of automatic  multimedia blog online
  • Ericsson Mobile learning Projects  Ericsson is participating in a number of EU funded projects as follows:  The Role of Mobile Learning in European Education  The Impact of New Technologies on Distance Learning Students  CONTSENS project – using wireless technologies for context sensitive education and training – (to commence Jan 08)  Research includes the definition of a pedagogical framework for the development of Mobile Learning courseware  For further information please access http://www.ericsson.com/ericsson/corpinfo/programs/index.shtml Or contact bernadette.simpson@ericsson.com
