  • Hello + quick introductions
  • Text wall
  • Hello have been asked to outline recent experiences from the Sheffield College regarding mobile, or m-learning will also plant some thoughts regarding the importance of connectivity Introduction been involved in e-learning for years: Run Weblinks, the award winning links site from the Sheffield College which wne t on-line over 10 years ago Tutor on our online professional courses, notably LeTTOL Digital CoVE Manager Now Senior Project Manager - MoLeNET project manager See ‘The Future of learning is Mobile’ – James Clay :
  • Using handheld devices Interaction between personal devices and institutional networks and resources – the importance of connectivity
  • Want you to talk to each other Want ideas, want responses Use flip chart paper and sticky notes!
  • MoLeNET ran in 07/08 Bids for 09/10 in Autumn 2008 32 colleges awarded bids We got the £300k maximum after delivering our pitch at the LSN in London Immediate other needs => budget, technical support …….
  • Part of the vision From the Castle College ‘new era’ booklet which was published four years ago – 2006 – something we are moving towards
  • The MoLeNET project coincided with the early stages of a phased move to a new college building with a much improved technical infrastructure. Together, MoLeNET and the new build provided the focus that was required in order for change to happen quickly. Reality - webcam image - matches the architech drawing
  • Detailed project plan in place - many sub-projects Large range of devices purchased The project is placing a wide range of mobile devices into the hands of teachers, technicians and learners across a wide range of curricula. This development is seen as part of a longer-term college-wide technology strategy which sees m-learning and e-learning converging.
  • Examples of devices in action Everything from hairdressing, to animal care, to construction, to basic skills …. Large range of curriculum areas involved Lots of devices used
  • In the College – lots of curriculum areas involved
  • MoleNet had tight deadlines, no time for proper training Staff had to rely on one another This contributed to success of CAMEL – used events and Moodle forums to ask questions and share ideas CAMEL – sharing was about pedagogy rather than technology 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 1 PSP session, SCC, July 2009 2 CAMEL session at Norfolk Park, June 2009 3 MoLeNET3 launch event, December 2009 4 MoLeNET3 launch event, December 2009 5 David Foord, CAMEL event, October 2009 6 CAMEL launch event, February 2009 7 CAMEL session, Hillsborough Barracks, March 2009 8 MoLeNET CPD, February 2010
  • More negative imagery Sheffield Star, the Sun - Local school – Paul Haigh running a workshop this afternoon - recommended
  • Connectivity!
  • DAVE The project is an Integral part of our Strategic plan – one sub-section specifically referring to the increasing use of m-technology within the College Succes outside the College E-gov finalist JISC RSC Evolution awards finalist – results next Monday
