  • Me on left, no me in bright shirt. This is at Strathclyde Uni, Carl Smith found it on Internet …
  • BYOD issues. Smartphones, tablets, laptops ... With our increasingly mobile workforce, consumerisation in IT has led to staff demanding to use their own devices for work - or for distractions during work breaks! The benefits for an IT department's budget at first seem tempting, promising dramatically to reduce hardware costs as employees provide their own platforms instead. But the ‘Bring Your Own Device’ phenomenon also brings its challenges in terms of support, management and security. Organisations are being forced to address two key challenges: how to manage secure remote access to essential company resources (like artifacts); and how to control which devices employees are using to access company data (again artifacts). Nevertheless, the movement is growing - Citrix cites [1] savings of up to 20% and IBM [2] claims 80,000 staff are now accessing its corporate network using self-owned devices.http://healthcaretechreview.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/smartphone-doctor.jpghttp://www.guardian24.co.uk/Images/Business-Woman-Using-Phone(2).aspxDoes this help? I have done more esoteric research in mobile learning area but will sit on it for now :-)References:[1] Bring-your-own-device projects cut costshttp://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/fd92894c-3658-11e1-a3fa-00144feabdc0.html#axzz1vDvqnd9H[2] IBM CIO discusses Big Blue's BYOD strategy.

    7. 7. Structure session Participants will be asked to put forward initial ideas on how they would investigate a research question. I will then briefly present my own approach to researching the above question and recount my recent experience of getting a paper about this work reviewed for a journal of international standing. The paper drew on a case study on people tagging in workplace learning. Participants will be invited to critique my approach. I will summarise the lecture interactions, framing them in terms of computer science, natural science and social science research perspectives. The session will conclude by inviting participates to go away and consider the issues surrounding interpretations of what counts as good research from a TEL perspective.
    8. 8. BOYD: Bring Your Own Device Smartphones, tablets, laptops ... With our increasingly mobile workforce, consumerisation in IT has led to staff demanding to use their own devices for work - or for distractions during work breaks! Citrix cites savings of up to 20% IBM claims 80,000 staff are now accessing its corporate network using self-owned devices.
    9. 9. Given the emergent nature of the area The literature on the use of social media and mobile technologies in workplace practices is small. The following question arises
    10. 10. What, if any, potential is there for the use of social media and mobile technology in informal, professional, work-based learning?Talk to the person next to you for 2 minutes (take turns). Just few sentences: 1. Your discipline: xxx 2. How you would investigate the above question: xxxThere is no one correct answer!
    11. 11. Your discipline:How you would investigate the above question:
    12. 12. Call on facebook for help to seed the debateYour discipline: cyberneticsHow you would investigate the above question:turn it around: which of these technologies makesworkplace/informal leaning more difficult? people willdisagree, discuss, and use a lot of "but"-sentences.(the part behind the but is the interesting part).
    13. 13. Call on facebook for help to seed the debateYour discipline: EducationHow you would investigate the above question:trainee teachers out on placement – interest in thedifferent types of technologies they use/ dont use.Not many tweeters - but this would be a great wayfor them to keep up-to-date with Governmentlegislation; the policy announcements from theEducation Minister- (most weeks something new); tofollow debate themes run by Educationprofessors, Michael Rosen is a must, the TES, aswell as pulling through fun/interesting/randomthreads to enliven their day..mobile is clearly the wayforward.

    14. 14. Call on facebook for help to seed the debateYour discipline: Not givenHow you would investigate the above question:Read everything Ive ever written...Ok this one is best!Toward a mobile Architecture of Participation withNigel Ecclesfield & added Mike Sharpleshttp://architectureofparticipation.wordpress.com/2010/09/10/towards-a-mobile-architecture-of-participation/
    15. 15. My own approach I will now briefly present my own approach to researching the above question Education-related. The paper drew on a case study on people tagging in workplace learning Recount my recent experience of getting a paper about this work reviewed for a journal of international standing.
    16. 16. My own approach The paper provides a critical overview of key issues from the literature on  work-based learning,  face-to-face and technology supported,  as well as social (mobile) networking services  with particular attention being paid to people tagging. It then introduces an initial typology (checklist) of informal workplace learning in order to provide a frame for understanding social (mobile) network(ing) services in work-based learning. Finally, a case study (taken from the literature) of People Tagging tool use in digital social networks in the European Commission funded MATURE project is used to illustrate aspects of our typology.
    17. 17. The ReviewsReviewer 1: Accept minor amendments.Reviewer 2: Accept minor amendments, as Co-Editorof Special Issue thought Review 2 too harsh.Review 3: Reject & resubmit. Didn’t like it, commentsshowed from physical science and maybe expectedall research to be done that way! But, some goodquestions raised that helped improve paper.Made changes, different Reviewer 3 broughtin, accepted …
    18. 18. Participants invited to critique my approach Thoughts …
    19. 19. What is your Impact Factor? Cook, J. and Pachler, N. (2012). Online People Tagging: Social (Mobile) Network(ing) Services and Work-based Learning. British Journal of Education Technology, 43(5). Email john.cook@londonmet.ac.uk for Final Draft: Note that BJET is a high quality international journal: Impact Factor: 2.139; ISI Journal Citation Reports Ranking: 2010: 11/177 (in Education & Educational Research). “The impact factor, often abbreviated IF, is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals. It is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field, with journals with higher impact factors deemed to be more important than those with lower ones.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impact_factor accessed 16 May 2012
    20. 20. I will now summarise the lectureinteractions, framing them in terms of researchperspectives:• computer science• natural science• social science• Correct me if I got it wrong 
    21. 21. The session now concludes by inviting participatesto go away and consider the issues surroundinginterpretations of what counts as good researchfrom a TEL perspective.Thank you …
