    • 1. The PCA Mobile Device Student Partner Project Elaine Garcia & Martial Bugliolo Sophie Pring, Chamaine McDonough, Ellen Sexton, Jo Cookney, Ryan Holder, Lewis Wain, John Mears & Jordan Ash
    • 2. About the Project Changing the Learning Landscape (HEA) Aim: Evaluate the use of mobile devices within an educational & art and design context Process: • 7 students given a mobile device for 1 year • Range of devices: Ipad mini, Nexus 7, Kindle Fire, Kobo Arc • Range of disciplines: Games Design, Costume, Illustration, Photography • Students required to provide feedback once a month and complete a presentation at end of the year • If all aspects completed successfully students could then retain the device • Other Aspects to the project (talk about another day)
    • 3. Workflow • Making Notes in and outside class • Documenting with Camera: Own work, sources, research, inspiration • Using Calendar for reminders, scheduling, timetable, deadlines • Multiple Email accounts – personal and College • Evernote enabled notes to be stored in one place. • Blogging could happen conveniently from anywhere.
    • 4. Convenience / Ease of Access • Easy to carry around • No need to boot up • Can use anywhere (truly mobile) • Use as a secondary device (music, training, etc.) • No barrier of screen • Collaborative tool • Long battery life • Can sync with other devices
    • 5. Becoming paperless • Allows blogs to be used as sketchbooks • Allows collection of large number of sources • Reduces need to print out research ideas • Allows students to carry portfolio electronically
    • 6. Apps Social Design / Drawing Productivity Games Books EntertainmentVideo Shopping
    • 7. Discipline • Games Design – Kindles and Nexus7 – Students wouldn’t recommend for courses that use computers – Would find a graphics tablet more useful • Photography – Useful for productivity – Useful for scanning and taking photographs – Useful for being able to display portfolio / looks professional • Illustration – Ipad Mini and Kobo Arc – Made certain tasks easier – Useful for productivity – Useful for scanning and taking photographs – Pretty much does the same as laptop but more convenient – Should be used as an incentive to work hard • Costume Design – Useful for productivity – Useful for collaboration – Useful for scanning and taking photographs – Would be useful for students on the course – Useful for being able to display portfolio / looks professional PerceivedUsefulnessofMobileDevice HighTechtoLowTechSubject

    • 15. Type of Device 1. Ipad Mini – Easy to use / intuitive – Good screen resolution – Good quality camera – Can sync with other apple products – Fast and quick to use 2. Kobo Arc – More affordable than ipad mini – Artistically there are limits 3. Nexus 7 – Poor battery life – Storage was limited (8GB) – OS was slow (“Slower than my iphone 4s”) – No camera – Best value for money / newer generations 4. Kindle Fire – Limited Store (Kindle rather than full android store) – Poor battery life – OS struggled with more than one app open – Screen too small
    • 16. What’s next? • No large scale adoption at this stage • Ipad / Ipad mini appears to be the best option • Need to consider further disciplinary differences • Demonstrates nature of personal device • No replacement for the laptop / desktop • Useful for collaborative activities • We need further reflection and to continue discussions with students further
