      Today’s child is bewildered when he enters the 19th century environment that still characterizes the educational establishment where information is scarce but ordered and structured by fragmented, classified patterns subjects, and schedules”
      • (Marshall McLuhan, 1967).
    • M-Learning
      Milrad (2003) states that e-learning is “learning supported by digital ‘electronic’ tools and media, whereas mobile learning is e-learning using mobile devices and wireless transmission (in Hutchinson et al, 2008).
    • M-Learning
      This definition does not require the learners to have any actual mobility, however.
    • M-Learning
      learners could be using a mobile device at fixed times, in fixed locations.
    • M-Learning Definitions
      “In terms of devices and technologies” whereas others
      “define and conceptualise it in terms of the mobility of learners and the mobility of learning” (Traxler 2007)
    • M-Learning
      Knowledge construction, ‘sage on the stage’ vs. ‘guide on the side’
    • M-Learning
      Effective, efficient
      No longer tethered to a time and place
    • Smartphone and Specialized Mobile Devices
    • Polar Heart Rate Monitors
      • Polar Heart Rate Monitors
      Understanding what your heart is telling you and how much work you are capable of doing.
      Seeing improvement by increasing work rate at the same heart rate level.
    • Dropbox
      Documenting each activity log with a meaningful reflection of what was applied from the theory part of the course.
      • Using heart rate monitors you can upload your activity logs into an online journal.
    • REALLY?
      Technology for technology’s sake
      Disconnection from here and now
      Is it better than what we did before?
    • It can improve learning
      If focus on why and how learning will improve
      If it’s easy to use
      If we aren’t trying to teach two courses in one
    • Simple solutions
