  • Students making learning material Send & QRMake it Use it
  • Students demoing skills & competence Take it Share & comment
  • Video clipsHow to use a mophttp://youtu.be/iG6vycR5gbI
  • Video clips • sweeping machine: parts and usage • emptying a trash-can • starting a driveable lawn-mower • changing ventilation system filter Filter-change Sweeping machine Room before Room after cleaning up
  • QR Codes- how to wash hands- igniting a lawn-mower- safety instructions
  • Pictures and text”Gone shopping”• finding the right machine for a job and getting a price for it• picture taken and price added as text or speech Vacuum cleaner
  • Scaffolding and narration Cleaning up own room
  • Other• learning diary: dictate / video clip / writing a note• location and route maps to the job-learning place• communication with instructors, teachers and peers: email and SMS
  • Why? Special Education Instructor Päivi Vuorihuhta, Omnia- familiar tool, fits to pocket- motivation to use it when student gets to use it also on leisure- peer usage/guidance/collaboration- voice, picture, text: multi-channel- autonomy, ownership, self-regulation- own activity, repetition, returning to own work is easy as it is always at hand
  • To be considered Special Education Instructor Päivi Vuorihuhta, Omnia- requires passion and readiness to learn new from the instructor- lot of time, scaffolding and support needed for learners with special educational needs- infrastructure: support for learning the tech, getting the apps, adjusting web access- getting equipment based on learning process and goals, not vice versa
  • Their saySurvey, building maintenance students, Omnia + easy to use Listen music Watch movies personal extension Surf net Take photos very little need for it-help Shoot video Play games cloud-based apps Write memos Use email peer-to-peer learning Other
  • Their saySurvey, building maintenance students, Omnia – WiFi not sufficient No probs iPod difficult killing some gremlings Apps difficult Probs with WLAN Other big probs Minor probs, but OK Flickr, Alex Barros
