An Introduction to Moblogs in Education

  1. 1. Moblogs! “Create & Share, Anytime & Anywhere!” Leonard Low Canberra Institute of Technology http://mlearning.edublogs.org [email_address]
  2. 2. Um.. Whatblogs ? <ul><li>A “ moblog ” is a “ mob ile we b log ” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A website you own, control, and customise, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Where you can post stuff you create, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>From your cellphone, PDA, or other connected mobile device: anytime and anywhere! </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. In other words… <ul><li>A moblog is your “ log” , or journal, on the web , that you can update from your mobile device (usually a mobile phone). </li></ul><ul><li>A moblog can also have more than one contributor – for example, a whole class of students… or E-lluminate users… </li></ul><ul><li>Let’s have a look at one! </li></ul>
  4. 4. http://moblog.co.uk/blog/mobilelearning <ul><li>My testing and demonstration moblog… </li></ul>
  5. 5. Wanna Try It? Yaay, of course you do! <ul><li>Email a photo, video, or sound file (as an attachment) to: </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>And you’ll see it appear here: </li></ul><ul><li>http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips </li></ul><ul><li>You can add a text comment and a title in your message </li></ul><ul><li>You can email from your mobile phone or your computer </li></ul><ul><li>I’ll put this information on the rest of this session’s slides </li></ul><ul><li>– add something anytime! </li></ul>mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  6. 6. So… Why Moblog? <ul><li>Moblogging can be used as a fun and effective: </li></ul><ul><li>Individual learning activity </li></ul><ul><li>Formative assessment activity </li></ul><ul><li>Way to document ANY process over time </li></ul><ul><li>Group resource-gathering and sharing activity </li></ul><ul><li>Summative assessment activity </li></ul><ul><li>… and much more… </li></ul>mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  7. 7. So… Why Moblog? <ul><li>Instead of making notes like this : </li></ul>Your students could moblog like this : mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  8. 8. So… Why Moblog? <ul><li>They could share images, sounds, & videos they create … </li></ul>… with other learners and experts everywhere … mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  9. 9. So… Why Moblog? <ul><li>… using tools they enjoy … </li></ul>… to get instant feedback ... mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  10. 10. So… Why Moblog? <ul><li>… any time … </li></ul>… and anywhere . mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  11. 11. Here’s just one example. <ul><li>This is Darren. </li></ul>mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  12. 12. Here’s just one example. <ul><li>Darren is studying advertising & marketing. </li></ul>mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  13. 13. Here’s just one example. <ul><li>This semester, he’s been asked to moblog examples of advertising and marketing that he comes across. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s an eye opening assignment. </li></ul>mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  14. 14. Here’s just one example. <ul><li>For the first time, Darren walks down the street, noticing how advertising works in his own world. How advertising works on him . </li></ul>mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  15. 15. Here’s just one example. <ul><li>That’s just one of the many things he reflects on, in his moblog. </li></ul>mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  16. 16. Here’s just one example. <ul><li>His classmates have their opinions too… </li></ul>mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  17. 17. Here’s just one example. <ul><li>… and of course, moblogs of their own … </li></ul>mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  18. 18. Here’s just one example. <ul><li>… so there’s plenty to talk about. </li></ul>mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  19. 19. Here’s just one example. <ul><li>(Even before industry professionals find the moblogs, and add even more ideas.) </li></ul>mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  20. 20. Are you getting the picture ? (and there’s more than just pictures: you can also moblog with videos and sounds .) mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  21. 21. Create & Share, Anytime & Anywhere. Moblogging is a way to make students reflect on how their area of study is part of their life generally. It can also be used as a means of documenting a specific activity, such as a creative process or an assessment. Pedagogically speaking, moblogging favours situated and exploratory learning in a social constructivist framework. mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  22. 22. Perhaps that’s why education everywhere is moblogging! <ul><li>Singapore’s educational moblogging community: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>http://www.campusmoblog.com.sg </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>14202 users. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>1057 (educational) groups: ( http:// www.campusmoblog.com.sg/main/group_blogger.asp ). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wow. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Oh, sorry… only mobile-enabled for Singaporean residents. Sigh. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>But couldn’t we replicate this for Australian VET??? </li></ul></ul>mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  23. 23. In this moblog, a class of 13-year olds is documenting their development and production of a video on “Managing and Respecting Intellectual Property”. Wow. A group moblog: http://ICJYS1.campusmoblog.com.sg mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  24. 24. Each photo represents a file uploaded instantly from a mobile phone. These “posts” are organised with the most recent addition first. Videos as well as photos are supported. On this moblogging site, there is also a mobile-enabled chat facility. Group members can chat using either their web browsers or their mobile phones. A group moblog: http://ICJYS1.campusmoblog.com.sg mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  25. 25. Yes, moblogging is cool. <ul><li>Everyone’s going mobile. </li></ul><ul><li>Sites you probably already know and use – sites that used to be “web based” - are now offering mobile services which effectively make them moblogs… </li></ul><ul><li>Sites like these: </li></ul>mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  26. 26. <ul><li>The picture-sharing Web 2.0 site, flick r , is a blogging tool. Each “photo blog,” collects and displays picture entries in reverse chronological order. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s also mobile-capable - you can upload pictures directly from your mobile device. </li></ul>Yes, (for example), flick r . It’s a moblog. mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  27. 27. <ul><li>You can upload photos to flick r from your mobile phone: </li></ul><ul><li>Using simple e-mail . Each account has a unique email address for uploading photos to it, and most mobile phones can send emails. </li></ul><ul><li>Using the mobile web version of flick r , located at http://m.flickr.com </li></ul><ul><li>Using a photo uploader program which can be installed on most phones. </li></ul>Mobile flick r . mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  28. 28. <ul><li>Once you’ve explored basic moblogging – getting media from mobile to web to build up a record – there’s lots of other strategies to try out: </li></ul><ul><li>Connecting your moblog: you can use some tools, like Flickr, to accept your images and text and re-post them to a more connected and customisable blog, such as an edublog ( http://edublogs.org ). </li></ul><ul><li>Group moblogging: you can set up moblogs for a whole class to contribute and discuss. This can be simpler and more effective than individual moblogs. </li></ul>Advanced Moblogging. mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  29. 29. Then there’s “Locoblogging”: moblogging combined with a record of the location that each photo, sound, or video was created. The media can be recalled chronologically (as for normal moblog) or by geographic position. This is great for subjects like forestry, biology, or even forensics (to name just a few)… Advanced Moblogging. mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips
  30. 30. If you have a GPS device, you can try locoblogging at: http://locoblog.com Advanced Moblogging. mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips If you don’t, you can still manually geotag your images in flick r ! Locoblogging is useful if location adds relevant context to the media.
  31. 31. Moblogging: amazing tools in the palm of your hand… mb-etoolsntips-mb@moblg.net > http://moblog.co.uk/blog/etoolsntips “ Phenomenal cosmic power! Itty bitty living space.” – Genie, “Aladdin” (1992) Old way New way Any questions?
