  2. 2. As mobile technology becomeswidespread, the emphasis shiftsfrom anytime anywhere access to...... what kind of learning do you want to achieve?
  3. 3. Learning as…Changing behaviour BehaviouristEnhancing skills PerformativeAcquiring information ReceptiveGaining knowledge ConstructivistMaking sense of the world SituatedInterpreting reality in a Collaborativedifferent way
  4. 4. The 3 C’s of effective learningConstruction relating experience to knowledge, creating new ideasConversation with teachers, with learners, with ourselves, and with the worldControl actively pursuing knowledge
  5. 5. Toolkit for effective learning Construction • Multimedia computer • Video and still camera • Audio recorder Conversation • Phone • SMS Control • Timer • Accelerometer • Location tracker • Tilt sensor

  15. 15. New pedagogies• Seamless learning – Learning by connecting knowledge across locations, times, worlds (real and virtual), devices Chan, T-W., Roschelle, J., Hsi, S., Kinshuk, Sharples, M. and 16 others (2006) One-to-one Technology Enhanced Learning: An Opportunity for Global Research Collaboration. Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 1,1 pp. 3-29.• Personal inquiry learning – Learning by personally meaningful investigation, guided by mobile technology toolkits Mulholland, P., Anastopoulou, S., Collins, T., Feisst, M., Gaved, M., Kerawalla, L., Paxton, M., Scanlon, E., Sharples, M. and Wright, M. (2011) nQuire: Technological support for personal inquiry learning. IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies. First published online, 5th December 2011.• Contextual learning – Learning by creating ‘micro-sites’ for learning in informal settings such as field trips Boyle, T. & Ravenscroft, A. (2012) Context and deep learning design. Computers and Education, 59,4, 1224-1233.
  16. 16. Seamless learningMyArtSpace• Aim: to connect learning in museums and classrooms• Learners as active collectors• Mobile phones for collecting• Website for sharing and presenting• 3000 children over 1 year in three museums
  17. 17. Prepare a question in theclassroom Create and collect evidence in the museum View and share in the classroom Present a personal perspective
  18. 18. Personal Inquiry learning• Three year project• University of Nottingham/ The Open University• Aim: – To help children to become scientists, by developing their skills of effective science investigation
  19. 19. Myself My Environment My Community Personally meaningful investigations Food packaging Urban heat islands and decayFitness and heartrate Healthy eating Effect of noise Micro- pollution on birds climates
  20. 20. Effect of noise pollution on birds• Investigation devised by children, aged 14• ‘What is the effect of noise on bird feeding’?• Observation, quasi- experiment, fair-test• Plan in classroom, collect data outside, share and present in classroom• Inquiry toolkit on netbooks
  21. 21. Orchestrating Inquiry Learningin the classroom, guided by the teacherand technologyInquiry learning cycle
  22. 22. Orchestrating Inquiry Learningoutside the classroom, guided by thetechnology
  23. 23. nQuire
  24. 24. Contextual Learning:• Open citizen science• Wildlife observation• Finding and naming birds, trees, flowers, insects• Sharing knowledge• 16,000 registered users• 100,000 observations• Mobile app
  25. 25. Mobile learningchallengesConnect learning inside and outsidethe classroomManage children bringing their ownpowerful personal technologies intoschoolSupport new pedagogies for mobilelearning
