  2. 2. Mobile learning • Any activity that allows individuals to be more productive when consuming, interacting with, or creating information, mediated through a compact digital portable device that the individual carries on a regular basis, has reliable connectivity, and fits in a pocket or purse. (eLearning Guild 360 Mobile Learning Research Report, 2007)
  3. 3. My Mobile Learning Journey (Vine Video)
  4. 4. Learners and mobile devices: A framework for enhanced learning and institutional change Ako Aotearoa National Project Fund Project aims Implement a framework for enhanced learning and institutional change Produce a range of practical strategies for staff and students to use the affordances of mobile devices

  6. 6. Heretaunga Free Kindergarten iPad Trial 1. Draw pictures (Doodle Buddy) 2. Recorded their ‘voice stories’, 3. Wrote a story (Book Creator) based on the stories to go with their drawings. 4. Then children would listened to their voice and read the words together when it was done. • Used for learning and evidence of learning
  7. 7. Heretaunga Free Kindergarten iPad Trial • A teacher had videoed her children being super heroes and created a short trailer (iMovie) • This was shown to her children at whānau time and the children were very excited as they recognised themselves in the movie.

  8. 8. Primary Schools – ICT Cluster • ShowMe and Explain Everything: allows the user to record annotations, voice. – Teacher flipped classroom: Introduce concepts so in class can be more activity based – Way to collect evidence of students ability and could be used to compare progress later in the year.
  9. 9. Frimley School Blogs • Class Blogs – Year 4 –
  10. 10. Tertiary Examples • AUT (Communications Studies) – Communications Studies developing learning communities using Google Plus and the Google Plus App on smartphones and tablets. Source: 7e532eb7aed2eeb.pdf.
  11. 11. Capturing Knowledge • Michael Verhaart <> <> – Uses mobile to email to Blog (adds #hashtag to title) > Posts to a tweet • Students can tweet using same #hashtag any items of interest • Beginning of the class he reviews this list – Adobe Connect to broadcast lessons • Students interact with their mobile devices
  12. 12. Student Created Textbooks • Istvan Lengyel <> – Use mobile devices to create tutorials and collect resources (photos, videos) – Publish this as a collaborative textbook ( – These then be used next year with diploma class as a resource
  13. 13. From The Horizon Report • Relevance for Teaching and Learning in STEM+ Education – As interactive and social features become more integrated into mobile devices, scientists can share their findings, making the app an ever-growing repository of information. – Mobile apps provide STEM+ students with learning experiences and practice activities, from animal dissection apps to 3D views of the periodic table. – Students can leverage the cameras, microphones, and other tools inherent in mobiles to do field work, create rich media, collect and analyze data for experiments, and more.
  14. 14. From The Horizon Report (cont) • Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey developed Mobile Intelligent Laboratory, an app that allows users to be part of a physics experiment: • Freshmen at Jackson State University are each provided with an iPad to use as a graphing calculator, access math reference formulas and periodic tables, and more: • Thammasat University in Thailand built an IT infrastructure to support BYOD so students and staff can access content from their personal devices via wireless network:
  15. 15. From The Horizon Report (cont) • The University of Exeter in the UK built an augmented reality app that transforms the campus into a living lab so users can view scientific data about their surroundings: •

  18. 18. Food for thought • “Students are driving the mobile revolution in schools and campuses across the country -- demanding access to more information and increased capabilities to use their mobile devices to conduct their activities on campus--when and where they want. Supporting the myriad devices that students bring to campus, building applications for both administrative and academic functions, and creating a truly mobile experience that meets students' expectations is no small endeavor. How is your institution [and YOU] confronting the mobile challenge?” • - See more at: thash.RcsowAzt.dpuf
