1. Whole Group: MobileLearning Mobile Learning (also known as m-learning): Learning with mobile devices in traditional settings Learning in atypical environments using mobile devices
2. Introduction 88% of American adults own the most- common type of mobile device, a cell phone (2012) A Time Magazine survey announced that 76% of American adults feel that “being constantly connected by technology is mostly helpful.” (2012)
2. Introduction Mobile device ownership is not limited to adults: 77% of teens own either a smart phone or standard cell phone (2010) 50% of teens own a smart phone (2012)
2. Introduction: Rationale Mobile devices are widely owned Mobile devices represent a convergence of many disparate devices, and exploratory research revealed some benefits of mobile learning.

4. Presentation: LiteratureReview The intent of the review of the literature is to set the stage for the pilot study, which investigates existing mobile device use policies Four threads have been identified within the literature on mobile learning: 1. characteristics 2. surveys 3. accessibility 4. models
4. Presentation: Jeffrey Patton Jeffrey is an amazing technology teacher at Michigan Collegiate Middle and High School Here he is!
4. Presentation: Jeffrey Patton Mobile learning services Celly Google Voice Poll Everywhere How to begin to use mobile devices
4. Presentation: Literature Review:Characteristics Their utility for teachers and students Their ability to improve student’s technology skills Their diverse meaning in the lives of adolescents
4. Presentation: Literature Review:Surveys Wide ownership of mobile devices among students Policies at schools throughout the United States which prohibit cell phones Greater support on behalf of principals for mobile devices http://survey-reviews.net
4. Presentation: Literature:Accessibility Little correlation between increased access to technology and gains in student achievement Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and greater access to technology has other benefits
4. Presentation: Literature:Models The FRAME (Ally, 2009) model amalgamates mobile technology, learning, and social interactions
4. Presentation: Literature:Models As described by the TPACK model, teachers are concerned with transforming content with technology to make it accessible to students, (Mishra, Koehler & Kereluik, 2006, p. 1023)
4. Presentation: Pilot Study The pilot study was composed of two layers of analysis:1. Determine either the presence or absence of a mobile device policy2. When a policy was available, whether the policy allowed, selectively allowed, or prohibited mobile device usage during instructional time at school
4. Pilot Study The following characteristics were used by to code those policies: Allowed: Students may use mobile devices during instructional time without restriction. Selectively Allowed: Discretion is given to either the principal or teacher to allow mobile device use. Prohibited: Mobile devices are not allowed during instructional time and no discretion is given to neither the principal nor teacher.
4. Pilot Study Survey 1 found 19/25 (76%) of schools had a publically available policy Survey 2 found that among those with policies, seven allowed, 12 prohibited, and none selectively allowed mobile devices
5. Pilot Study Insight into the policy environment faced by some educators in some public high schools Six of the 25 schools in the sample did not have a publically available mobile device use policy Most of the schools (63%) in the sample with a policy prohibited mobile devices, while the remainder (37%) selectively allowed mobile devices.
5. Small Groups: Write a Policy Back to your small group Write an ideal, school-level policy Fourgroups Notecards Paper Action! 20 seconds write a policy on your own 2 minutes write a policy with your group
5. Small Groups: Write a policy Volunteer in your group to share your policy! Image from: http://darhosta.files.wordpress.com/
6. Discussion: Future Research Five areas for possible future research: School board vs. school policies Selectively allowed policies Differences in policies between populations Zoning Historical Views
