    • 2. Talking about……Tablets Dr Neil Wittwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 2
    • 3. Welcome• 12:30 - 14:00• It’s about talking• We have some examples• Let us know what you want• We don’t have the answers – but we can influence the futurewww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 3
    • 4. A quick snapshot of current usewww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 4
    • 5. A quick snapshot of current use• Content Production• Content Consumption• Communication and Calendar• Academic Process and Practice• Exploration and Researchwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 5
    • 6. Where next?www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 6
    • 7. Problems and solutionswww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 7
    • 8. Solutions and Problemswww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 8
    • 9. What? !Who has what? !What do you want to use your device for?www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 9
    • 10. Building Capacity – the student voice Ask me whatwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 10
    • 11. Some Findings from Building Capacity Plymouth! Students want 24/7 access to course info & learning materials, on the devices they use! They expect to use their own technologies on campus: but these are often less up-to-date, portable or robust than we might imagine! They have diverse preferences for social and communicational media: some like to separate personal / study spaces! There is a need for consistency from tutors, and clarity about digital practices at course level www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 11

    • 15. What are our users using?www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 15
    • 16. Apple Datawww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 16
    • 17. Android Datawww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 17

    • 19. Android Datawww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 19
    • 20. User data• 120 different Android devices (all with slight variants)• 75% Apple, 25% Other• iPad usage = 5% (but 10% of these are TLD)www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 20
    • 21. User Data• So if (very approximately) less than 5% of students have an iPad why are we bothering?www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 21
    • 22. Horizon Scanning www.nmc.orwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 22
    • 23. Taking the Tablets Summary • 2011 – 3M iPads/month sold • Samsung Galaxy & Sony Tablet S released • iPad – 97% tablet based traffic • 47% Mobile web traffic • Relevance for Teaching, Learning, or Creative Inquirywww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 23
    • 24. Horizon Scanning (UK HE)www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 24
    • 25. Horizon Scanning (UK HE)www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 25
    • 26. Horizon Scanning (UK HE)Relevance for teaching, learning, research, orinformation management• Tablets are easily adaptable to almost any learning environment, with tens of thousands of educational applications emerging as part of a new software distribution model.• As a one-to-one solution, tablets present an economic, flexible alternative to laptops and desktops due to their lower cost, greater portability, and access to apps.• Tablets are conducive to engaging in learning outside the classroom, with a suite of tools for capturing data in real-time and collaborating on projects, while offering a large, user friendly interface.www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 26
    • 27. Tablets with Plymouth University? Will Plymouth adopt a Tabletwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 27
    • 28. Revisiting….www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 28
    • 29. Data in the Cloud ORwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 29
    • 30. Data in / data out• Dropbox – Excellent but use with care – must have students permission to load it on to Dropbox then any permissions from them for further things that you may do with the works after they have been loaded on to Dropbox – https://www.dropbox.com/dmca#terms• iTunes• Email• Googledoc/ftp/etc.• ALL DEPENDS ON THE APPwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 30
    • 31. Marking and Annotationwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 31
    • 32. Image editing - SnapSeedwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 32
    • 33. Image editing - PS Expresswww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 33

    • 36. iTunesUwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 36
    • 37. External Devices• Stylus• Projector• Printer• Camera• Video• Screenwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 37
    • 38. Using iPads with Students• Joint Teaching fellowship investigating use of iPads for reflection with illustration students.• Working with Dean Owens, module leader BA Illustration.• Using 10 iPads available for staff/student use managed by Technology Enhanced Learning.www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 38
    • 39. Overview• Being used over 5 weeks, 2 groups of 20 students each with a 2.5 hour sessions every Thursday.• 10 students each week using an iPad to draw whilst remainder use materials of their own choice.www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 39
    • 40. Why the iPad?• Platform specific app – Brushes• Simple, intuitive control, touch gestures, similar to natural drawing (& stylus can be used)• Excellent battery lifewww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 40
    • 41. Brushes AppIllustration by JamesView www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 41
    • 42. Student reaction• Still halfway through the project but little reluctance to use from students• Some actively downloaded the app and use in their own time• http://technologyenhancedlearning.net/ipadsforillustration/www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 42
    • 43. Workflow1. Charge, clean iPads before session, check software and email working2. Hand out iPads to students, logging number / name3. Students create various works over 2.5 hours4. At the end of session, students can email images to personal accounts.5. Collect iPads, upload every image to Flickr and email image actions to my account so I can create videos later (then upload to YouTube)6. Delete images ready for next group then repeatwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 43
    • 44. Issues• Management and maintenance (charging, cleaning, buying apps)• Tracking, 10 are numbered but larger numbers would be difficult• Risk of damage, expensive to replace or repair.• Screens have been scratch from stylus - screen protectors reduce ability of stylus so having to use them without them.www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 44
    • 45. Final thoughts• Would it be better for students to use own iTunes account and manage their own device?• Sustainability?• Give the students the tasks of uploading work – enhance digital literacy skills?• Value – did it aid reflection?www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 45
    • 46. How is Plymouth responding?• Provide an enhanced learning experience through the use of technology and digital solutions• Move to device independent delivery through the use and development of web based applications and cloud services as a preference• Ensure learning that is device-independent, adopting a multi-channel approach with infrastructure able to cope with mobile platforms and devices.www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 46
    • 47. Going Ahead• Funding models are still an issue• Training and Support needs defining• Plymouth Systems and Technology Review• What do you want? TEL@plymouth.ac.ukwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 47
