  • The definition of m-learning has been too technocentric, so we should seek other definition that look at the underlying learner experience and ask how mobile learning differs from other forms of education (e-learning) – not focus on mobile device. Focus on learning
  • Timing: 20 minutes or 2 hours vs. less than 5 or 10 minutesInformation access: comprehension and retention vs. Just-in-time accessContextAssessmentThe point is the capabilities and features of today’s mobile devices are now allowing us to create entirely new ways of learning than previously possible. When you start thinking about your phone or other mobile device from this perspective, you’ll be amazed at the creative ideas that will start to flow and the many ways to enhance the learning process. The key in transitioning the learning objectives and content lies in your ability to assess the learner’s goals and understand their context and the delivery methods you have available to you as the learning creator.
  • Content – the delivery of media including documents, audio, and video Compute – the ability to perform calculations and have programmatic responses Capture – capturing data from the local environment such as photos, videos, audio, or information from sensors such as location or direction Communicate – the ability to reach others with text, voice, or even video

  • http://chronicle.com/article/The-Slow-Motion-Mobile-Campus/127380/ABILENE CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITYIn 2008, the Texas university was the first to give all new students their choice of an iPhone or an iPod Touch. William J. Rankin, an associate professor of English who helps lead the project, says 85 percent of faculty members report using the devices in the classroom at least once a week. Such efforts have to be about fundamentally rethinking the way we do teaching and learning," Mr. Rankin says. "If it's just about giving out a device, it's not going to last. It can't be a marketing initiative or a recruiting initiative."DUKE UNIVERSITYDuke gave iPods to all incoming students in 2004 but scaled back the program two years later. Tracy Futhey, chief information officer, says campus officials are now focusing on improving Duke's mobile application and making existing campus data available on new platforms. Duke has also been working for three years to expand wireless and cellular coverage to 95 percent of the major areas on campus, a challenge that people tend to underestimate, Ms. Futhey says. "They're thinking about developing cool apps, but they're not realizing that we might have limitations on where those apps can be used."SETON HILL UNIVERSITYThe Greensburg, Pa., university has drawn widespread press coverage since it gave iPads and MacBook Pros to all full-time incoming students last fall. Students pay a $500 technology fee each semester. JoAnne W. Boyle, Seton Hill's president, calls the iPad a "magical device" that could be a "transformative learning tool on campus." Ms. Boyle says she does not know of any faculty members who are critical of the project. "If there are, they're not part of the buzz around here."UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTONThe university's main campus, in Seattle, is devoting most of its efforts to expanding wireless and cellular coverage on the campus and making its Web content easier to use on mobile devices, says David R. Morton, director of mobile communications. To involve more students in the college's mobile efforts, Mr. Morton hopes to stage a "development Olympics" in which small teams of students compete to quickly develop the best additions to Washington's iPhone application.ACU 2011 K-12 Digital Learning Institutehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYgPyjiEr90&feature=player_embedded#Abilene Christian University (ACU) launched the K-12 Digital Learning Institute in July to train K-12 teachers in using mobile technology to support their lessons. The training program was funded with a portion of a $1.8 million contribution AT&T* made to ACU to expand the university’s mobile-learning initiative.

    • 16. What is m-learning?
      Mobile learning is considered a new and more flexible educational strategy where students have opportunities to review course content or communicate with their peers and instructors “anywhere,” “anytime” without the restrictions of fixed-location computer technology (Caudill, 2007).
      Mobile learning is more than just learning delivered and supported by handheld and mobile technologies. It is learning that is both formal and informal, context aware, and authentic for the learner(Traxler, 2005, 2007, 2010).
