Transcript of "Vi Ca Di S And Mobile Learning"

  1. 1. ViCaDiS and Mobile Learning Virtual Campus for Digital Students P roject number: 134039-LLP-1-2007-1-RO-ERASMUS-EVC Lauri Kurkela, Oulu University of Applied Sciences, School of Engineering ViCaDiS International Conference On Virtual Campus September 25th 2009, Timisoara, Romania
  2. 2. The Mobile Learning Development Problem Area <ul><li>eLearning Developers and Educational Designers have to be aware of mobile learning related technological prospects to be able to determine how to benefit from new possibilities </li></ul><ul><li>They have to guide the innovation process related to mobile learning in universities </li></ul>
  3. 3. The ViCaDiS Project <ul><li>What is ViCaDiS? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ViCaDiS stands for Virtual Campus for Digital Students </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Duration: 2 years (2007 – 2009) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Partner Countries (6): Finland, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Romania, UK </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>10 Partners </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Portal http://www.vicadis.net </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. The ViCaDiS Project <ul><li>ViCaDiS </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Implements Social Software and mobile features into learning environments of cooperative universities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Facilitates shift from Institutional Learning Environments (ILE) towards Personal Learning Environments (PLE) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Facilitates Interuniversity Cooperation </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Wired and/or Wireless Communication and Services? Services on the Internet Computers Mobile Devices Dual Device Option Channel Wired Wireless Services for Mobiles Available Channels, Costs to Use Device Properties, User Role
  6. 6. Learning Resources <ul><li>(Mobile) Learning Resources can have pedagogical, functional and content-related features </li></ul>Pedagogy Content Functionality Learning Objects as Learning Resources Learning Objects are defined as any entity, digital or non-digital, which can be used, re-used or referred to during technology supported learning (LOM 2000) The Use Of Content Resources Learning Activities The Use of Functional Resources
  7. 7. ViCaDiS and Mobile Learning (1/4) Innovation Process related to Educational Use of Social Media and Mobile Technologies Identification of Relevant Mobile Technologies Educational Potential and Benefits of Mobile Technologies Mobile Learning in the ViCaDiS Project
  8. 8. THE INNOVATION PROCESS <ul><li>SSM - Soft System Methodology </li></ul>
  9. 9. A Purposeful System Consists of Interacting Layers Society University and Interacting Layers Layer of University / Universities and Related Networks Layer of Curriculum and Courses Layer of Learning Tasks Layer of Media Elements and Related Metadata
  10. 10. Paradigm and Paradigm Shifts <ul><li>Paradigm refers to the functional model(s) which guides a system or its subsystems </li></ul><ul><li>A paradigm shift must be Technically Possible and Culturally Acceptable (Checkland & Holwell 1998, Checkland & Scholes 1999, Checkland 1999) </li></ul><ul><li>Usually the desired cultural change is more demanding than the technological one (Neus & Scherf 2005) </li></ul>
  11. 11. Paradigm Shifts include both the Formal and Informal Features The visible formal side of a paradigm The invisible informal side of a paradigm (Adopted from Neus & Scherf 2005) Processes, Roles, Tools, etc. Customs, Values, Beliefs, Taboos, Stereotypes, Traditions, Language Behaviors Paradigm Shift FORMAL Side of the NEW Paradigm INFORMAL Side of the NEW Paradigm Technically Possible ? Culturally Acceptable ?
  12. 12. A Successful Paradigm Shift <ul><li>If any of these elements is missing, the paradigm shift will fail (de Woot 1996) </li></ul><ul><li>Paradigms affect to what kind of learning resources are needed – And learning resources affect to what kind of paradigms can be used or developed </li></ul><ul><li>Paradigm shifts, reorganizing of purposeful entities and development of resources are organizational development tools. </li></ul>Pressure for Change Capacity for Change Clear Shared Vision Actionable First Steps
