  • In this hands-on workshop participants will experience firsthand the magic of mobile learning. How can it be used in a learning environment? Why digital literacy must be included among our skills to be truly literate in today’s world.  We will review a number of social media tools (Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Google voice etc) that can be utilized with cell phones and share lesson plans that outline how to use them with learners. If you have a cell phone, please bring it. However, those without cell phones are still welcome to attend.
  • Flexible Learning is a set of educational philosophies and systems, concerned with providing learners with increased choice, convenience, and personalisation to suit the learner. In particular, flexible learning provides learners with choices about where, when, and how learning occurs. Sometimes also referred to as personalized learning. Flexible learning is a term often used in New Zealand and Australia see Shurville et al. (2008) What is e-learning? E-learning is the effective learning process created by combining digitally delivered content with learning support services. V. Waller and J. Wilson E-learning consists of the transfer of skills and knowledge using electronic applications and processes. This may include Web-based learning, computer-based learning, virtual classrooms, and digital collaboration, use of audio or video recording, satellite or land-based broadcasts, CD-ROM, and even the phone system. E-Learning can be broadly defined as any use electronic technology to create learning experiences. As you can see above, e-Learning encompasses a number of different modalities or the combination of them. Here we will only address a few examples. For more information use the links above or the links in the left hand side navigation bar.
  • Benefits Interaction: Student interaction with instructors and among each other Portability: PDAs are lighter than books and enable the student to take notes or input data directly into the device regardless of location either typed, handwritten or using voice Collaborative: Enables several students work together on assignments even while at distant locations Just-in-time learning: Increases work/learning performance and relevance to the learner Engaging learners Increase motivation: Ownership of the handheld devices seems to increase commitment to using and learning from it Bridging of the digital divide: Since handhelds are more affordable than larger systems they are accessible to a larger percentage of the population May assist learners with some disabilities Disadvantages Small screens of mobile phones and PDAs Limited storage capacities in PDAs Battery life/charge Lack of common operating system Lack of common hardware platform make it difficult to develop content for all Less robust Still difficult to use moving graphics Limited potential for expansion with some devices Devices can become out of date quickly Wireless bandwidth is limited and may degrade with a larger number of users Difficulties with printing, unless connected to a network

QR Codes Q R stands for Quick Response Invented in Japan by Toyota in 1994 to track vehicles during the manufacturing process QR code is detected as a 2-dimensional digital image by a semiconductor image sensor and is then digitally analyzed by a programmed processor. Translation: You can scan it with your smart phone or tablet. 29
    30. 30. What QR Codes Do QR codes contain information and instructions on what your device should do with the information ◦ Take you to audio, pictures, videos, and websites ◦ Save information in your address book
