Learning is mobile anyway... invited webinar contribution for Edinburgh Napier University (11 April 14)

  1. 1. Chrissi Nerantzi Academic Developer Manchester Metropolitan University, UK @chrissinerantzi Learning is mobile anyway Invited webinar, 11 April 2014, Edinburgh Napier University
  2. 2. the plan Context 1. Mobile reflections project – the voice & social media: inclusive learning & teaching in practice 2. A module in your pocket – learning through application 3. BYOD4L – mobile learning on an open course about mobile learning What would you like to get out of the session?
  3. 3. • Where do you learn? • When do you learn? • How do you learn? Richly social and intensively personal by Steve Wheeler @timbuckteeth
  4. 4. “On Apr. 3, 1973 the world's first portable cell phone, the DynaTAC (also known as "the brick"), was introduced in the United States by Dr. Martin Cooper at Motorola. The phone was a foot long, weighed two pounds, and cost $4,000. It was not until 1983 that the first commercial cell phone system was launched in Chicago by Ameritech Mobile Communications.” http://cellphones.procon.org/
  5. 5. The future of education (2030 vision): “The overall vision is that personalisation, collaboration and informalisation (informal learning) will be at the core of learning in the future. “ (Redecker, 2014, 12)
  6. 6. “From primary school all the way up to universities there is an alarming dearth of educators.” (UNESCO, 2012, p. 6) “In order to address the global teacher crisis: it (the world) must raise both the quantity and quality of the global teacher workforce. [...] mobile technologies can help move countries closer to both of these goals.” [...] mobile devices, often functioning in concert with other technologies, have a track record of improving educational efficiency and helping novice and experienced teachers alike acquire complex skills and complete meaningful work in classrooms.” (UNESCO, 2012, p. 7)
  7. 7. “What makes social media exciting for higher education is the inherent public aspect. Whether through posting a video, image or a text response in a conversation, anyone in the social network can engage with the content. [...] Social media has changed the nature of these important conversations so that they are not always behind closed doors, but instead viewed as an opportunity for substantial collective thinking and action.” (Johnson et al, 2014, 9)
  8. 8. “We need to stop seeing the curriculum as a predictable, ordered and manageable space, but instead review it as an important site of transformation characterised by risk and uncertainty” Prof. Maggi Savin-Baden, Prof of Higher Education Research, Coventry University, 2011 ECEL2011 contribution
  9. 9. A lifewide curriculum is an ecological curriculum (Prof. Norman Jackson) “If we begin with the problems, challenges, interests in our lives we create our own process(es) that provide us with opportunities, relationships and resources for learning, development and achievement. Self-created learning ecologies are the means by which experiences and learning are connected and integrated across the contexts and situations that constitute our life. They are the means through which we take concepts and reasoning learnt in formal education settings and apply and modify them to real world situations. Knowing how to create and sustain a learning ecology is an essential part of 'knowing how to learn' in all the different contexts that comprise an individual's life. Learning ecologies are therefore of significant conceptual and practical value to the theory and practice of lifewide learning and education.” (Jackson, 2014, 20)
  10. 10. individual’s learning ecology (Prof. Norman Jackson)
  11. 11. use of digital tools in private life for learning for teaching
  12. 12. http://www.learninglives.co.uk/uploads/1/0/8/4/10842717/chapter_c2.pd Mobile Reflections (MoRe) Pilot, Developing Reflection within Initial Teacher Training for students with dyslexia by Chrissi Nerantzi 2010 project started as part of my MSc BOE at Edinburgh Napier University
  13. 13. inclusivity in your classroom

  18. 18. voices “Really easy. It would have taken me 2 hours to write my reflective journal. Now this is just a quick phone call between my dusting.” “It feels natural. I can listen back and have another chance to filter what I can take away and learn from it.”
  19. 19. deepening reflection describing feeling analysing reasoning stepping back being self-critical exploring options linking to action own perspective link to theory colleagues, students, etc.
  20. 20. classification criteria based on Hatton’s and Smith’s (1995), also adapted by Moon (2004) abbreviation/title characteristics 3 CritR Critical Reflection Critical exploration and reasoning of practice in a wider context, link to theory and thinking about the effects upon others of one's actions. 2 DialR Dialogic Reflection Stepping back, practice analysed, reasoning well developed, linking own viewpoints with these of other, exploring problem solving. 1 DescR Descriptive Reflection Own practice is analysed, some reasoning for decisions and actions, limited to own viewpoints and perspective. 0 RepoR0 Reporting, no reflection Accounts limited to reporting events sporadic evidence of reflection.
