Experiential Mobile Learning


Published on

Young people are connecting with one another through technology in unprecedented ways. Computers, wi-fi networks, and smart phones allow young people 24/7 access to technology and to one another. Using smart devices in educational settings as learning and community building tools can promote interpersonal communication and encourage young people to positively express their individuality and build their student-to-student, student-to-educator relationships. The activities that will be presented and experienced during this workshop use the technology that young people use - cell phones, social networking sites, laptops, blogs, and digital cameras. These activities focus upon and build diversity and cultural sensitivity, teamwork and problem solving, self-reflection and self-exploration, and communication and self-expression (adapted from Wolfe & Sparkman, 2009).

  • Explaining how factor analysis was used to identify benefits of technology in academic success:A statistical technique used to reduce a large number of attributes into a smaller set of “factors” based on response patterns.A factor consists of a number of attributes that are rated in a similar way.Factor analysis is extremely useful when dealing with a very large number of attributes that would be cumbersome to analyze individually.The names of the factors are subjective and are intended to describe the common theme shared by all of the attributes within that factor.
  • Continuing with the factor analysis, there are relationships between selected technologies and certain benefits.
  • Overall, the average student spends at least some time engaging in about 21 different kinds of software applications and activities out of 40 they were asked about. Students use a variety of communication tools, but the most common ones have reached mass adoption.
