  • Raymond "Ray" Kurzweil is an American author, scientist, inventor, futurist, and is a director of engineering at Google.
  • This is the learning curriculum as we know it.
    The opportunity for Mobile learning exists in all but the face-to-face environment
  • Definition of mobile learning
    Reference: Wang, R., Wiesemes, R., & Gibbons, C. (2012) Developing digital fluency through ubiquitous mobile devices: Findings from a small-scale study. Computers & Education, 58(1), 570-578. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.compedu.2011.04.013  
  • One of the many examples mobile learning can be incorporated into an existing learning program
    Blending takes into account the four basic instructional architectures described by Ruth Clark (1998): Receptive (information acquisition), Directive(response strengthening), Guided Discovery (knowledge construction), andExploratory (linking to real world tasks and resources). It creates a blend of activities and instructional strategies that will effectively engage the learning preferences of the students.
  • Thank you!

    1. 1. Learning Strategy in a Mobile Work Styles Environment Dr. Robin Yap, JD, PhD
    2. 2. “Mobile devices are misnamed. They should be called gateways to human knowledge.” Ray Kurzweil
    3. 3. Learning Continuum Mobile Learning Live (synchronous) (asynchronous) On Demand
    4. 4. Mobile Learning, defined At TELUS, we define Mobile Learning as “Learning through Mobile devices using Mobile features.”
    5. 5. Mobile Learning Opportunities Sustainability Traditional Format Blended Format Application of Learning Final Assessments and Application of Learning Mobile Learning Features Communications Mobile Technology Implementation
    6. 6. Mobile Learning in action Incentive badges Geo-taggedsmartphone Time-released 2 1 3 4 56 7 Scanned-released On-demand
    7. 7. Considerations for Developing Your Own Mobile Learning Strategy Technology Learning Text linked to LMS – possibly use Successfactor’s JAM. Used to send links and progress reports New build Videos linked to LMS – used to introduce a learning nugget, provide quick tips & tricks, etc Existing and new build Surveys linked to existing Learning Management System (LMS). Used for assessment purposes. Possibly existing but would need new build or redevelop existing assessments Audio broadcast. Used to provide new content, interview people, hear how a message sounds (ex. How to respond to a client complaint using our call response structure) New build Technology Learning Stories, Scenarios used for simulations, case studies, additional reading Current class content or New build Geotagging used for location-push- based learning nuggets New build Time-Based learning nuggets New build from existing material Scanner based learning nuggets (QR Codes, Bar Codes) New build from existing material Badging for incentive and achievement purposes New build
    8. 8. Considerations When Linking Mobile Strategy to Corporate Goals  Research  Requirements  Governance  Technology  Data  Security  Device  User experience  Compliance
    9. 9. Strategy Challenges  Lack of money  Security concerns  Technology issues  Adaptability
    10. 10. Key Questions to Consider 1. What are some of the challenges and considerations that need to be considered when selling mobile learning? 2. How does mobile learning fit into our existing curriculum? 3. What infrastructure, decisions, need to be examined for mobile learning requirements? 4. How can we address adoption challenges? 5. At what speed are we ready to launch a mobile learning initiative? 6. What kinds of financial impact will it have on our organization? 7. How can we capitalize on mobile learning to leverage the learning we already have invested in our organization?
