Judith Seipold: Mobile Learning – potential, controversies and implications for future R&P in networked (informal) learning

  1. 1. SoMobNet International RoundtableJudith Seipold21 November 2011Institute of Education, University of London 1
  2. 2. Mobile LearningPotential and controversies embodied in a youngscientific field and arising consequences for futureresearch and practice with view to social,networked and (informal) learning 2
  3. 3. My context• Media Education – Influenced by Educational Science, Sociology, Cultural Studies• Mobile Learning – Analytical and systematising view to the current discussion – Reference framework is a socio-cultural ecology of mobile learning – Aim is to approach current trends, perspectives and deficits 3
  4. 4. Context of the presentation• Context is research on mobile learning• Comments about social and networked mobile learning stem from an analysis of the scientific process of the educational and media educational mobile learning discussion• Learning in formal environments is considered 4
  5. 5. Two central aspects of the presentation… as results of the analysis of the scientific process of the mobile learning discussion:• Mobile learning literature talks about collaborative learning which is my focus in the following presentation• Mobile learning practice gives examples of forms and the organisation of collaborative learning 5
  6. 6. Agenda1. Systematics of the scientific process of the mobile learning discussion2. Examples of learning with mobile devices in formalised contexts3. Implications, actors and consequences for social, networked and informal learning in formalised contexts 6
  7. 7. Systematics of the scientific process of the mobile learning discussion Reference areas • Structure • Implications 7
  8. 8. Reference areas 8
  9. 9. Argumentative reference areas Learner: Learning process: self responsible, discursive, creative, designing, communicative, competent, equitable, networking, collaborative, sustainable networked, enabling, appropriativeEducational system:open, enabling, Society:innovative, emancipative, unstable, affected bydemocratic cultures, dominated by subjective perspectives, fun orientation and Technology: consumption, infrastructure, globalisation and resource, enabler, community orientation tool Figure 1: Argumentative reference areas in the Mobile Learning discussion (Seipold, 21.03.2011). 9
  10. 10. Basic assumptions Figure 2: Mobile Learning is … (Seipold, 21.03.2011). 10
  11. 11. Structure 11
  12. 12. The scientific process and it‘s structure Figure 3: Structure of the Scientific Process of the Mobile Learning Discussion (Seipold, 21.03.2011). 12
  13. 13. Implications(drawn from the analysis of the discussion) 13
  14. 14. What is meant by collaborative learningwithin the mobile learning discussion?Bringing “collaborative learning” to life by focussing on – Concepts – Aims – Actors – Aspects – Models and theoriesNB: mobile learning is understood as taking place in formal contexts such as school, university, apprenticeship, workplace 14
  15. 15. Collaborative learning: Concepts• Research is turning away from technology centred to learner centred concepts• Learning is understood as being personalised, collaborative, situated, constructivist and contextualised• Preferred concepts are – activity-centred and conversational approaches – interactive, collaborative, conversational, discursive practices in the teaching and learning process, highlighting constructivist approaches 15
  16. 16. Collaborative learning: Aims• Aim on a structural level – to share data, information and knowledge and – to build structures – for (collaborative and/or subjectively meaningful, negotiated) meaning making and knowledge building• Aim on an subject centred level – identity construction – professional self-concept – expertise and experiences (see e.g. Chan 2011; 16 de Witt et al. 2011; Coulby et al. 2011).
  17. 17. Collaborative learning: Actors• Learners are active as they are learning personalised, connected, networked, interactive, collaborative, discovering and creatively• Teachers are advisors, guides, providers of information and orientation 17
  18. 18. Collaborative learning: Organisation• Focussing on collaborative mechanisms means to focus on how this learning is organised: – the appropriative mechanisms of the learners i.e. their agency and cultural practices as processes, – their learning environments i.e. contexts – their activities i.e. their performed (objectified) agency and cultural practices within contexts 18
  19. 19. Mobile learning practiceExamples • Implications 19
  20. 20. Examples 20
  21. 21. Appropriation mechanisms• i.e. dealing with content by using mobile devices – Collect data – Retrieve data – Store/ disseminate data – Transform data into information and knowledge by referring to different collaboration forms 21
  22. 22. Environments• i.e. places of dealing with content and engaging in interaction by using mobile devices – School – Everyday life (physical places) – Web 22
  23. 23. Activities• i.e. forms of collaboration in selected projects by using mobile devices – Personalised learning – Peer-to-Peer learning – Teacher centred learning – Collaborative learning 23
  24. 24. Collect data in classroom, outside,allone, in groups Image 1 Image 2 Image 3 Image 1: Learners are Filming an Physical Test (Nischelwitzer 2007).

  32. 32. Social, networked and informal learning in formalised contexts Conclusions • Consequences 32
  33. 33. Conclusions 33
  34. 34. Structural and political implications• Innovation from learning with mobile technologies to a new understanding of what learning is• Democratisation of the education system and of learning processes• Emancipation of the learner from receiver of knowledge to the active and appropriative learner and constructor of contexts 34
  35. 35. Collaborative learning by using mobiledevices in formal contexts is …• Related to the data collection, retrieval and distribution: Provision, construction, distribution, retrieval of data, information and knowledge• Option to connect to other learners by using mobile technologies: Dynamic establishing of networks, groups, personal learning environments 35
  36. 36. Role of mobile devices, platforms andlearners for collaborative learning Mobile device Platform-snaps, stores, provides access- -stores- [data] [data] [information] [information] Learner -collects, distributes, generates- [data]  [information]  [meaning and knowledge] -by using- Figure 6: Role of mobile devices, platforms and learners in the meaning making process (own illustration). 36
  37. 37. Consequences 37
  38. 38. Didactic considerations• Check results, suggestions and demands from theory and how they are used in practice• Make your reference frame as clear as possible• Take practice from everyday life to inform theory and formal learning• Distinguish between roles of technologies of learners. The latter are constructing learning, contents, contexts, knowledge, networks; technology is only tool, resource and platform• Make infrastructure and resources available that allow for dynamic, open and networked collaborative learning• Allow for and enable innovation, emancipation and democratisation 38
