    18. 18. 6 Principles to feed into debate and thinking about research strategy
    19. 19. 6 Principles - Summary(see http://slidesha.re/GYYP7X for details and related publications. This 2 pager has had 1,558 views, as of 05/09/2012, since April 2012)1. It is a democratic right to have equity of access to cultural resources (widely defined).2. Mobile phones are new cultural resources that operate within an individualised, mobile and convergent mass communication system.3. Users are actively engaged in „generating‟ their own content and contexts for learning. This principle is summarised as „user-generated contexts‟.4. Appropriation is the key for the recognition of mobile devices (as well as the artefacts accessed through and produced with them) as cultural resources in and across different cultural practices of use, in particular everyday life and formal education.5. There is a significant potential for the use of social media and mobile devices in informal, professional, work-based learning. Talk: http://tinyurl.com/ctns4l5.6. Social media and mobile devices can be used to design transformative, augmented contexts for learning. Talk: http://tinyurl.com/6lhlrwu.

InGuglielmo Trentin and Manuela Repetto (Eds.),Using Network and Mobile Technology to BridgeFormal and Informal Learning. Chandos.
    21. 21. Cultural resources for learning draws on various traditions for its interpretationPhilosophical traditions of Idealism that take account of cultural resourcesCultural resources in the sense of the Idealism (Humboldt) or its materialist version (Leontjew) developed their education function by being appropriated.Social capital (various) & cultural capital (Bourdieu)Social class differences in the relevance of language to socialisation (Bernstein & Henderson, 1973; Bernstein, 1987).
    22. 22.  Cultural resources are images of the internet, written texts for a Rap lyric or the mobile photo application for the teacher‟s portfolio.  Images, text, photo application etc. are becoming personal resources by being internalized and externalised (or represented) within the school context. We combine the dynamic of internalization and externalization with the term appropriation. Appropriation has three dynamic components:  firstly, bringing cultural resources into a person‟s inner horizon of preferences, values, arguments or feeling etc.,  secondly, processing e.g. the images of the internet and,  thirdly, bringing out the results by expressions within the context of the school.

Your discipline: EducationHow you would investigate the above principle:“I would ask the participants (first ensuring I hadrepresentation from newbies, yuppies, lateadopters, old lags, senior management etc) whattechnologies and networking tools they have accessto, arrange some CPD opportunities around what Ilearned from that first exploration and then follow upthe CPD 3 months and 12 months later.” Academic in„old‟ University.

    30. 30. Urban planning
    31. 31. TaskSome examples of the varied learning activities involved in theapplication include a section where the user is asked to examine both thephysical architecture and the virtual architecture in the same physicallocation. The virtual architecture in this instance includes areas which arenot available to view on the day of the tour and visualizations of thebuilding as it was in the late 19th century. The user is then asked toexamine what the building was originally used for when it wasestablished in 1870. The user also has the opportunity to listen to theoral history of a former pupil at the school and adopt their point of viewwhilst in the same physical space where the events took place. The usercan reinvest the insight gained back into the context and augment thespace.
    32. 32. “The information given was underlined by theexperience of the area and therefore givencontext in both past and present.”
    33. 33. “it was triggering my own thoughts and I wasgetting to think for myself about the area andthe buildings.”
    34. 34. Tutor comments The tutor, who was interviewed after the tours had taken place, believes that there are lots of benefits to the Urban Education mobile tour and that it can provide more effective learning experiences and opportunities to utilise new and different pedagogies. Points made include that students move from being passive to active learners, they can take more control over their learning, and they can be engaged in more productive pedagogical approaches, such as small group work and investigative problem-based learning. The mobile tour can be more focused, but at the same time provide a multi-tasked and multimedia experience that allows students to get below the surface of the tasks. He also feels that the mobile technologies employed excited and intrigued the students, and helped them to become more engaged in the tour.
