    Mobile Learning ( mobile technologies) Mobile Learning ( mobile technologies) Presentation Transcript

    • The implications of mobile technologies in individual and collaborative learning Adelina Moura (PhD Student) Ana Amélia Carvalho (Supervisor) University of Minho – Braga, Portugal [email_address] [email_address] PhD Thesis Postgraduate Summer school Iadis 2007 Lisbon
    • Objectives
      • The main aim of this research is to study the impact of mobile technologies (Smartphones and Tablets PCs) in the teaching and learning process.
      • The project focuses on the impact of mobile technologies in individual and collaborative learning.
    • Research Questions
      • Which will be the implications of mobile technologies in individual and collaborative learning?
      • The mobile technologies will be able to contribute to change student’s attitude to the curriculum matters and school?
    • Theorical framework
      • The activity theory emerges as a potential framework to unify theoretical perspective in Human Computer Interaction.
      • Activity theory helps to explain how social artifacts and social organization mediate social action (Bryant et al, 2005)
      • Some categories based on a model from cultural-historical activity theory (Engeström, 1987) will be used to analyze data.
    • Methodology (1)
      • We intend to conduct a quasi-experimental study;
      • Two groups:
      • - the experimental group
      • - the control group
      • During two terms
      • In a secondary school
    • Methodology (2)
      • The two groups will be compared relatively:
      • - to computer literacy
      • - attitudes towards school and learning
      • - knowledge test (pre-test and pos-test)
    • Methodology (3)
      • The experimental group will use technologies to learn, write and work individual and colaboratively
      • The control group will have traditional classes
      • At the end of the term they will do the pos-test (results will be compared)
    • Methodology (4)
      • During the second term both group will receive the same treatment with mobile technologies
      • At the end of the term they will do a knowlodge test and fill in the questionnaire of attitude
    • Instruments
      • Questionnaire to caracterize student’s computer literacy
      • Questionnaire of student’s attitudes (towards school and learning)
      • Knowloage test (pre-test and pos-test)
      • Questionnaire of student’s attitudes (towards school and learning) – evolution (after treatment)
    • Conclusion
      • The adoption of this new paradigm in classroom will contribute to rethink education
      • Mobile learning gives the individuals the opportunity to choose when and where they want learn
      • This study constitues an important contribution to the renewal of education
    • Questions? Comments,...
