  • The ability to be in a particular position but get a variety of views/different visual perspective was a very useful opportunity. The whole thing also got everyone talking in a way I hadn't experienced on field trips to Fountains before.
  • London met mobile learning: augment, support and transform

    1. 1. Mobile Developments The LTRI conducts research into the application of mobile devices to augment, support and transform learning John Cook, Carl Smith, Claire Bradley and Debbie Holley Learning Technology Research Institute
    2. 2. Jargon Buster • MOBILE LEARNING. “Mobile learning … is not about delivering content to mobile devices but, instead, about the processes of coming to know and being able to operate successfully in, and across, new and ever changing contexts and learning spaces.” (Pachler, Bachmair and Cook, 2010, p. 6) • LOCATION BASED LEARNING. “Location-based learning takes advantage of the ability of mobile devices to know where they are located and deliver information that is time-and-place-relevant.” (Horizon, 2009)
    3. 3. Jargon Buster • VISUALISATIONS. Formats can include images, maps, 2-D or 3-D animation, 3D models, timelines and Augmented Reality (AR) environments. • AUGMENTED REALITY (AR). “Technology that extends the picture of the world you can see through your phone.” (Guardian, 2010).
    4. 4. Augmented Reality Example: Street Museum: Augmented Reality on the streets of London
    5. 5. Visualisations Allow people to study objects that are too fragile to be physically handled, to reconstruct past events and landscapes, or to see behind the scene ‘on location’
    6. 6. “The ability to be in a particular position but get a variety of views/different visual perspective was a very useful opportunity. The whole thing also got everyone talking in a way I hadn't experienced on field trips to Fountains before.”
    7. 7. “The information given was underlined by the 'experience' of the area and therefore given context in both past and present.”
    8. 8. “it was triggering my own thoughts and I was getting to think for myself about the area and the buildings.”
