(Responsesmay relate to, preparing mobile content, creating more suitable apps, providing users with mobile devices;greater access etc.) 1 access Jul 1, 2011 9:47 PM 2 I am on my iPhone now and I have seen iPads used in kinder classrooms and Jul 1, 2011 6:07 PM up...i think the major issue of mobiles in classroom is as I said above. Cheating, cost, access etc. I think the time will come but some issues will have to be worked out, 3 There is some resistance from the faculty, but students will demand the Jul 1, 2011 5:06 PM implementation. Administrators will need to provide more support for appropriate content development. 4 Enhance communication with learner/parents; a major shift in how/what we Jun 28, 2011 5:15 PM teach 5 We are not there yet! Jun 27, 2011 11:39 AM 6 Having meetings via podcast. Jun 24, 2011 2:33 PM 7 Use of online platform to promote learner autonomy Jun 24, 2011 1:00 PM 8 Specific areas might make use of mobile learning, but generally wireless laptop Jun 24, 2011 11:47 AM would be used. 9 We are researching issuing pads to increase literacy and allowing smartphone Jun 24, 2011 9:15 AM use in ever class in a responsible manner 10 If I dont drive it, it wont happen. Resistance by leadership to using phones Jun 24, 2011 8:44 AM during meetings. Seen as a distraction and a waste of time. 11 We are just planning on starting to use mobile devices next year. I think mobile Jun 24, 2011 6:43 AM devices will be a Swiss army knife for students across the curriculum. 12 Greater access Jun 24, 2011 1:25 AM 13 really varied - access content, outreach to community -- really its hard to predict Jun 23, 2011 11:34 PM and will probably be a bit of everything 14 1:1 rollout of student netbooks is ongoing over several years. Jun 23, 2011 11:31 PM 15 Preparing mobile content in order to engage studebts and provide greater Jun 23, 2011 11:27 PM access, as well as expand and extend learning. 16 Must teach students how to use the mobile devices for a variety of purposes. Jun 23, 2011 11:26 PM Most students are great at using phones for gaming, communication but not necessarily education means. Also, there must be access to mobile devices and funding including devices just for teachers issued by the employer. Educators should not be using personal mobile devices to communicate with students. 17 Mobile learning will be more frequent in organizarions but will not take the place Jun 23, 2011 9:28 PM of the computer... 18 I think mobile learning could have an incredible impact on how we structure high Jun 23, 2011 9:15 PM schools if we allow it to expand possibilities. Our own fears are probably our biggest barrier. 24 of 28

Jun 23, 2011 7:58 PM 20 More Apps, specialized Clouds and real time connectivity with other devices. Jun 23, 2011 7:39 PM 21 Shifting the Assessment process. Jun 23, 2011 7:04 PM 22 Access, taking learning out of the classroom Jun 23, 2011 7:03 PM 23 I believe the iPad will be the future. I think the versatility of the operating system Jun 23, 2011 2:24 PM and the applications that can be added can be used to make tasks more effective. For example, there are applications built for the iPad that work with the PowerSchool program that our board is using for attendance. The list is huge and growing that will reinforce all subject specific information for students in an interactive and engaging atmosphere. 24 ease of access Jun 23, 2011 10:08 AM 25 We continue to encourage the use of personal mobile devices in my district. Jun 23, 2011 7:28 AM 26 Unsure. Jun 22, 2011 7:11 PM 27 Each student with there own mobile device. Jun 22, 2011 7:09 PM 28 Greater access to information/resources/tools. Greater communication with Jun 22, 2011 6:43 PM students Greater transparency for students in terms of assessment, purpose etc. 29 Without teacher access, resources, and time, it wont happen! Jun 22, 2011 6:36 PM 30 I think we are very much behind Jun 22, 2011 6:14 PM 31 slow adoption by pioneers only; but active use of iPads in teacher education. Jun 22, 2011 10:29 AM 32 being able to be connected everywhere without having to pay fees. Jun 21, 2011 9:18 PM 33 Im not familiar enough with the possibilities to answer this question. Jun 21, 2011 3:13 PM 34 Would be a very slow adoption. Jun 21, 2011 2:09 PM 35 We need to create more suitable content Jun 21, 2011 1:38 PM 36 No discussions about mobile learning at this time. Jun 21, 2011 10:46 AM 37 Problematic mobile devices very costly poverty is an issue for many students In Jun 21, 2011 10:34 AM addition many of these devices require vision or manual dexterity to use huge problem for disabled students . 38 I hope that using mobile apps will become the norm, that students will be allowed Jun 21, 2011 9:42 AM to use their own mobile devices and apps that they are most familiar with, that good teaching will be augemented by the use of mobile devices, that mobile devices will be viewed as a tool to be used in the process of learning and that ultimately the conversation will be about the learning and not necessarily about which tool got students there. 39 Greater access.

(Responsesmay relate to, preparing mobile content, creating more suitable apps, providing users with mobile devices;greater access etc.) 40 greater access to the internet Jun 20, 2011 6:42 PM 41 much of the questions do not personally apply Jun 20, 2011 6:36 PM 42 It is exciting to think about the potential uses of mobile devices in teaching and Jun 20, 2011 5:10 PM learning; however, like all technologies, they will over-promise and under-deliver. Lack of skill, training, support, and time will remain the biggest barriers. I have very little faith that my institution will ever take mobile learning or any other form of tech-enhanced learning seriously enough to provide the types of resources required to be successful in this area. 43 Undecided... Jun 20, 2011 4:55 PM 44 The use will grow rapidly. Im a slow adopter but am coming on board and can Jun 20, 2011 4:50 PM see this taking off in the future. Access to mobile and devices and cost will be barriers. 45 Id like to see teachers provide more mobile content, to provide students Jun 20, 2011 3:32 PM alternative pathways to share, to colloborate, and to demonstrate knowledge. 46 Creating more suitable apps that are content-rich, up-to-date, shareware and Jun 20, 2011 2:55 PM copy-left. 47 developing apps, training on choosing and using apps in an academic setting, Jun 20, 2011 2:48 PM making current content more mobile-friendly 48 The very near future needs to see all students given access to a computer Jun 20, 2011 2:11 PM during all school hours - 1 computer per child. I teach in a community school where student engagement is very low. When I use the computers the engagement increase 100% 49 EXTREMELY HIGH Jun 20, 2011 1:56 PM 50 Our system is switching over to PC and up until now we have been Mac based. I Jun 20, 2011 1:31 PM am concerned that there will be more viruses and the machines will break down more often with the high volume of student use. I think it is also a challenge to keep all staff members current. 51 I think that the reduced cost of mobile devices will eventually provide our Jun 20, 2011 1:13 PM students with more consistent access to web-related services. As student access becomes more consistent, teachers may be more willing to prepare online content and pursue a more paperless classroom. 52 Providing physicians, residents, and medical students with point of care tools so Jun 20, 2011 12:24 PM that they can provide better patient care at the bedside. 53 more widespread use and more suitable apps Jun 20, 2011 12:03 PM 54 greater access Jun 20, 2011 11:55 AM 55 It will continue to expand with the development of new technology.

Mobile learning will be the primary source of teaching and training in the next 3 years of this organisation as it is the fastest and most effective way of getting the point across in this lightning paced generation. 68 For ESL: allowing easy interviews/recording of native speakers - possibly with Jun 19, 2011 9:56 AM teacher in virtual attendance, geolocation tasks, esp. with RFIF tags, translation on the fly, remote class attendance 69 Get over it - mobile Devices will become (if not already) ubiquitous - we need to Jun 19, 2011 8:40 AM incorporate them into learning and teaching 70 We are currently looking into them for some of our students who need adaptive Jun 19, 2011 8:27 AM technology. 71 Until we can guarantee 100% use by all students, they will be limited in scope.
