Mobile Learning ( mobile technologies)

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