    4. 4. Mobile Phones in College Classrooms Scott W. Campbell “Despite sentiments against mobile phone use in the classroom, research shows that it is not an uncommon occurrence. For example, one study found that a third of university students in the U.S. play video games on their mobile phones and laptops during class (Gilroy, 2004). Other studies from Korea, Norway, and the U.S. indicate that various forms of mobile phone use take place in classrooms all over the world (Katz, 2005). In addition to using the technology as a form of diversion and social connection, some students have found ways to use it for cheating by accessing information online during an exam, taking and distributing photos of exams, and text-messaging answers to exam questions (Katz, 2005).” Scott W. Campbell Perceptions of Mobile Phones in College Classrooms: Ringing, Cheating, and Classroom Policies. Communication Education. Vol. 55, No.3, July 2006, pp.280-294 Thursday, March 19, 2009

    6. 6. Cell Phones Make Headway in Education Olga Kharif “A well-equipped cell phone with a foldout keyboard could even supplant a laptop in classrooms, says Bill Davidson, senior vice-president for global marketing a Qualcomm (QCOM), which makes cell-phone software and chips. ‘From a cost standpoint, they cost much less,’ he points out. Davidson represents one of the largest makers of mobile-phone equipment, so his bias is obvious. But his view is shared in academic circles. Phones may be better at facillitating teacher-student interaction, says ACU’s [Aberdeen Christian University] Rankin.” Olga Kharif Cell Phones Make Headway in Education. Business Week Online. 29 August 2008, p. 26 Thursday, March 19, 2009

    8. 8. Does the Medium Make a Difference? Christina Haas “The primary focus of studies of text editing within the field of English education, however, has been pedagogical: That is, researchers in this area, because of their interest in language teaching and learning, have looked to computer technology as a potential tool for helping students of all ages write -- and learn to write -- better. Drawing on cognitive process theories of writing (Bereiter & Scardamalia, 1987; Flower & Hayes, 1981; Hayes & Flower, 1980), some researchers in writing have hypothesized that by removing mechanical constraints computer technological [sic] will encourage longer and more fully developed text and will improve students’ attitudes toward and motivation for writing (Balestri, 1988; Collier, 1983; Daiute, 1986).” Christina Haas Does the Medium Make a Difference? Two Studies of Writing with Pen and Paper and With Computers. Human Computer Interaction. Vol. 4, 1989, pp.149-169 Thursday, March 19, 2009
    9. 9. Activities of Digital Kids Sherry Hsi “Digital kids take ownership of media creations and online expression. Here, ownership has blurry boundaries because of the distributed nature of how electronic media is easily created and exchanged via the Internet. Digital kids often embrace remix culture to produce meaning through the creation of objects, messages, representations, and other online expressions based on the re- use of other electronic expressions.” Sherry Hsi Conceptualizing Learning from the Everday Activities of Digital Kids. International Journal of Science Education. Vol. 29, No. 12,8 October 2007, pp.1509-1529 Thursday, March 19, 2009

    11. 11. Activities of Digital Kids Sherry Hsi “Digital kids are co-constructing a social reality and establishing norms for participation. Digital kids are concurrently developing online practises of multi- tasking, judging online information based on social reputation, comparing multiple online information sources, and trying out new online identities (Dede, 2005). ... Digital kids work on complex problems that require distributed teams to solve.” Sherry Hsi Conceptualizing Learning from the Everday Activities of Digital Kids. International Journal of Science Education. Vol. 29, No. 12,8 October 2007, pp.1509-1529 Thursday, March 19, 2009

    13. 13. Learning and Literacy James Paul Gee “When people learn to play video games, they are learning a new literacy. Of course, this is not the way the word “literacy” is normally used. Traditionally, people think of literacy as the ability to read and write. ... Today images, symbols, graphs, diagrams, artifacts, and many other visual symbols are particularly significant. Thus, the idea of different types of “visual literacy” would seem to be an important one. For example, being able to “read” the images in advertising is one type of visual literacy.” James Paul Gee What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy. Palgrave Macmillan 2003 Thursday, March 19, 2009
    14. 14. Learning and Literacy James Paul Gee Active Learning Principle All aspects of the learning environment (including the ways in which the semiotic domain is designed and presented) are set up to encourage active and critical, not passive, learning. Identity Principle Learning involves taking on and playing with identities in such a way that the learner has real choices (in developing the virtual identity) and ample opportunity to meditate on the relationship between new identities and old ones. There is a tripartite play of identities as learners relate, and reflect on, their multiple real- world identities, a virtual identity, and a projective identity. James Paul Gee What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy. Palgrave Macmillan 2003 Thursday, March 19, 2009
    15. 15. Learning and Literacy James Paul Gee Self-Knowledge Principle The virtual world is constructed in such a way that learners learn not only about the domain but about themselves and their current and potential capacities. Multiple Routes Principle There are multiple ways to make progress or move ahead. This allows learners to make choices, rely on their own strengths and styles of learning and problem solving, while also exploring alternative styles. Insider Principle The learner is an “insider,” “teacher,” and “producer” (not just a “consumer”) able to customize the learning experience and domain/game from the beginning and throughout the experience.

Texting may be using a new technology, but its linguistic processes are centuries old.” David Crystal txtng: the gr8 db8. Oxford University Press 2008 Thursday, March 19, 2009
