Establishing the digital City limits

The digital landscape for education. We hear so many different opinions on topics such as digital natives, digital literacy and digital technologies such as ‘mobile’ that it is hard to know where to begin. In this session I identify where we currently are in UK education, where some of us are headed and what may be on the horizon to help us enhance the learner experience.

  • Digital visitors and digital residents rather than Digital natives. Dave White, Oxford University   = Culture and motivation  rather than age Visitors and residents http://tallblog.conted.ox.ac.uk/index.php/2008/07/23/not-natives-immigrants-but-visitors-residents/ http://tallblog.conted.ox.ac.uk/index.php/2009/10/14/visitors-residents-the-video/ - video
  • Reference http://www.slideshare.net/timbuckteeth/its-personal-learning-spaces-learning-webs  Slide 23 Steve Wheeler
  • The changing notion of contact time. Traditionally ‘contact’ time was known: the time in front of the class and maybe a lab type session. Now the idea of ‘contact’ time is potentially 24/7 with online tools and I put this into 3 boxes: Pre session, During and Post session   How will the needs of learners be met in a 24/7 culture of learning: expectations, tools, culture Example shown above from Dr Adrian Barnes at University of Bristol who provides lectures online ahead of ‘during’ sessions, thus extending 1 contact slot. Example video - http://www.jiscdigitalmedia.ac.uk/examples/20110126/barnes/
  • There are emerging pockets of folk collaborating with departments officially to provide outputs that serve the student (assessment) and the institution. “ Tools such as blogs, wikis, social networks, tagging systems, mashups, and content-sharing sites are examples of a new user-centric information infrastructure that emphasizes participation (e.g., creating, re-mixing) over presentation , that encourages focused conversation and short briefs (often written in a less technical, public vernacular) rather than traditional publication, and that facilitates innovative explorations, experimentations, and purposeful tinkerings that often form the basis of a situated understanding emerging from action, not passivity.”     http://studentasproducer.lincoln.ac.uk/
  • Mobile learning focus
  •   Image credit - http://www.flickr.com/photos/kodomut/5145996668/
  • Mobile has snuck up on many but checking the web visitors and network usage stats suggests  that mobile isnt the future but already here and we can either choose to ignore it or embrace it   Current usage of connected devices at UOB https://www.wireless.bris.ac.uk/status  image credit http://www.flickr.com/photos/alexbrn/3735287592/
  • Reinforce previous point about the mobility of the learner, both in physical location but also in terms of time. Found via Mr Doug. http://dougbelshaw.com/blog/
  • Elevator pitch for the JISC mobile review http://mobilereview.jiscpress.org/   Image credit http://www.flickr.com/photos/thomashawk/259604248/
  • Stuff previously only available on computers now *anywhere* (context) Additional mobile reference www.slideshare.net/sharplem/disruptive-mobile-learning-bett-2008
  • What basic things can we do to support mobile? Infrastructure is one of them (wifi availability) and being rolled out across UOB. This should be tied to a strategy that is considered with the short/medium term For example, we have great wi-fi in bus stops, open spaces etc but not many of the teaching spaces like lecture theatres – crazy.   UOB wifi locations http://www.wireless.bris.ac.uk/help/locations/

  • Demo of mymobileBristol 70% of our users are Blackberry, not just iPhone as many believe…. Why? In part due to the cost of the iphone v free or affordable offers from other providers.   Project at http://m.bristol.ac.uk/
  • Understanding the mobile web (normal websites that adapt for mobile use vs native apps (ones built specifically for a type of device and operating system) Pros and cons for each Great reference at http://blogs.cetis.ac.uk/mark/2011/03/02/mobile-web-apps-a-briefing-paper/    Credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/macahanc6r/5521850778/in/photostream/

  • Handy overview for those new to the topic. Agree or disagree it is a topic we should consider. http://www.slideshare.net/dajbelshaw/the-essential-elements-of-digital-literacies Doug Belshaw slide 28 – 36

  • Reference http://www.slideshare.net/mweller/a-pedagogy-of-abundance The economic model which has underpinned many content based industries has been based on an assumption of scarcity. With a digital, open, networked approach we are witnessing a shift to abundance of content, and subsequently new economic models are being developed which have this as an assumption. p2 The shift to abundant content has as profound implications for education as it has for content industries. p2 For the consumer the changes are now significant: availability of music is instant; the granularity of purchase has altered from the album to the track; and if one uses bit-torrent type downloads then entire back catalogues are as easily downloaded as one track. This changes the consumer’s relationship to content, it is no longer the content that it scarce, but their own time and attention becomes the key scarce resource now. p4 Paywalls and subscription models can also been seen as an attempt to re-establish the scarcity of content. p5 As a result a ‘pedagogy of scarcity’ developed which is based around a one to many model to make the best use of the scarce resource (the expert). p5 {DIAGRAM] In a digital, networked age, while expertise is still rare, the access to content associated with it is now on a different scale. Content is free and abundant Sharing is frictionless Social interaction is key Complexity resides in the network Complexity arises because people don’t explicitly collaborate The filter is significant p7 We are witnessing a fundamental change in the production of knowledge and our relationship to content. p10 Coping with abundance then is a key issue for higher education, and one which as yet, it has not made explicit steps to meet, but as with many industries, adopting a response which attempts to reinstate scarcity would seem to be a doomed enterprise. Exploring pedagogies of abundance will be essential for educators to meet this challenge and equip their learners with the skills they need in an age of digital abundance. p10 If we put stuff online then the student experience is not just about learning in the limited contact time   Image Credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/drljohnson/5615400388/in/set-72157626487287044/

Definitions of mobile learning? &quot;Early definitions... which focused  predominantly on the attributes of mobile  technology, have given way to more sophisticated conceptualisations suggesting that mobility is the central issue (Winters, 2006). This denotes not just physical mobility but... having access to people and digital  learning resources, regardless of  place and time.&quot; Agnes Kukulska-Hulme (2010) Via Doug Belshaw
