M4D m-Learning MOOC video2: Mobile learning pedagogy A-Palalas M4D m-Learning MOOC video2: Mobile learning pedagogy A-Palalas Presentation Transcript

  • Mobile Learning: Pedagogy Dr. Agnieszka (Aga) Palalas Prepared for M4D MOOC – October 2013 https://www.m4d-mooc.org/portal
  • Mobile Learning: Pedagogy Outcome: To identify effective m-learning pedagogical practices that integrate existing learning and teaching theories and approaches while recognizing the pedagogical nuances of mobile learning.
  • Characteristics of M-Learning • Portable and flexible • Student-centred • Personal, private and familiar • Complex and fragmented • Chunked-up > on-off > spaced over time • Pervasive and ubiquitous: formal + informal
  • Benefits of M-Learning 1/2 • • • Fit into the lives of learners (productive ‘dead’ time) Immediacy of communication (incl. speech and data-sharing) Enhanced access to learning (dispersed communities , isolated situations) • • • Access to experts and peers on-the-go Perceived as an acceptable way for learners to receive reminders and chasers (time management) Bite-sized e-learning resources delivered to learners (field practice, work-based learning) • Abstract (representational) and concrete (environmentally-situated) knowledge integrated Modified from http://www.jiscinfonet.ac.uk/infokits/mobile-learning/why-mobile-learning 4
  • Benefits of M-Learning 2/2 • Active experiential learning • Contextualized learning • Capturing data, record of learning processes • Authentic content and challenge • Learning across contexts • New learning environments • Learner autonomy • Flexible collaboration • Accessible (special educational needs)… 5
  • Types of Learning • Behaviourist • Constructivist • Situated • Collaborative • Informal and lifelong • Supported (Naismith, Sharples, Vavoula, & Lonsdale; 2004) …contingent on needs and context
  • Pedagogy Away from: • Instructionalism • Behaviourism Toward the blend: • Authentic • Contextual • Collaborative, connected • Personalized • Active and meaningful • Guided by experts • Supported by experts and peers • Engaging and empowering 7
  • Case Study • Mobile-Assisted Language Learning • College English as a Second Language students • Augmenting in-class with authentic practice • >> Ecological Constructivism (Figure modified from Palalas, 2012)
