Integration of mobile devices

  1. 1. INTEGRATION OF MOBILE DEVICES Technology Considerations with mobile devices
  2. 2. Introduction to Research How might an instructional designer bridge the gap that exists between the digital world and the hardback, textbook traditions with mobile technology? Maureen Gorman
  3. 3. Table of Contents  Introduction  Vision and Vices  Abstract  Aiming at a moving target  Time Will Tell  Time Factor  Technology Emphasis  Statistics  Educating the Mobile Generations  Conclusion  Key Ideas  Vision  E-readers  iPad  Literature Reviews/Observations  References
  4. 4. Introduction With technology: the individual, educators, and educational institutions are faced with choices to make for the 21st century learner. Those choices are also expectations of interest groups, national, state and local decision makers, while a decision on what to use in classrooms has gone beyond the planning and purchasing of textbooks.
  5. 5. Visions and Vices This is supported by an introduction from the article “Integrating the iPod Touch in K-12 Education: Visions and Vices” in which Savilla Banister notes “Various interest groups, including state and national accreditation bodies, continue to expect that student (K-16) learn to effectively use computer technologies (ISTE, 2004; Swain & Pearson, 2002 a, 2002b) (Banister, 2010).
  6. 6. Abstract Education is changing so quickly, we as educators need to keep our eyes on the target and aim for the most centralized decision on how we will use technology to challenge the learner to maximize their opportunities to make the most of their inner capabilities.
  7. 7. Aiming at a Moving Target A comparison is made in the article “Aiming at a Moving Target” (2010) which calls attention to investigate the time needed before investment. In a pilot study of urban New York, the University of New York used pilot testing for prospective student taking summer class at John Jay College. New E-readers where changing quickly and too fast to make a decision for the future. The educators felt like they were “aiming at a moving target”.
  8. 8. Time Will Tell
  9. 9. Time Factor With time e-books and e-readers will evolve with greater possibilities. “Though there is no doubt that eBooks will be an expanding part of information delivery in libraries, the dedicated e-reader has not yet reached a point where the technology is worth investing in, particularly in these tough economic times.” (Kiriakova, Okamoto, Zubarev, & Gross, March, 1010).
  10. 10. Technology Emphasis “ In digital technology education, this can only be achieved if more emphasis and resources are devoted by institutions to developing the multi- media literacy of academics and developing sustainable work practices which benefit both teacher and student alike” (Kiarakova, 2010)

  13. 13. Educating the Mobile Generations http://newlearninginstitute.org/21stcenturye ducation/21st-century-learning/educating- the-mobile-generation.html
  14. 14. Conclusion Today I propose that an investment in training start with the educators and the possibilities of the eBook and eBook readers. From there, qualified pilot studies research this technology within the educational community over a sustained amount of time with documentation and observation. Even though there are studies in place, further studies could substantiate a decision for each individual unit of learning.
  15. 15. Key Ideas Changing role of teaching and learning practices as a result of technology. Possibilities of using “mobile devices” needs visionaries to test, purchase, teach, learn and implement research studies and then convince stakeholders of an appropriate plan of action. With community and financial support classrooms can experience the same tools that are used in the business world.
  16. 16. Key Ideas Key Ideas-Technology training for college students can be used to benefit K-12 classrooms. Discussion threads using literature, e-books, Power Points, chat rooms, discussion formats, and a combination of technological methods is a process/project way of stimulating learning experiences. Teaching reading with the use of Literature has many formats to use in combination with original formats. State and local agencies are faced with a dilemma that will be answered with an investment of time and resources. (Baniste ,2010).
  17. 17. Vision The roles of teaching will change to accommodate the needs of the current generation. More collaborative efforts with the emphasis on project planning is to take place. Possibilities of using “mobile devices” needs visionaries to test, purchase, teach, learn and implement research studies and then convince stakeholders of an appropriate plan of action.

  20. 20. iPad
  21. 21. iPad  Multi-Touch  The Multi-Touch screen on iPad is based on the same revolutionary technology on iPhone. But the technology has been completely reengineered for the larger iPad surface, making it extremely precise and responsive. So whether you’re zooming in on a map, flicking through your photos, or deleting an email, iPad responds with incredible accuracy. And it does just what you want it to.
  22. 22. What to look for in a mobile device? Design Content Connectivity Battery Life Features Library Connection Available E-books Price
  23. 23. Pro’s www.slj.com/tech iPod and iPad Apple has special book interaction features with the iPad books. Audio and video notes are part of the iPad applications. Embedded quizzes with scoring applications. Much lighter in weight in comparison to a textbook. Textbook companies can incorporate e-books. Learning with the mobile extends learning to the real world of applications.
  24. 24. Con’s Need for customer oriented licensing. Temporary extensive staffing, training needed. Full feature with more interaction for input. Battles with publishing companies and licensing. E-books are secondary to esthetic, historic, nostalgic, sharing potential of books. More flexible/onscreen delivery needed for e-books and greater customer satisfaction. (Cox, 2010) http://www.edutopia.org/electronic-readers-versus- classroom-texts “After all, every electronic medium relies for storage on plain old magnetism . And magnetism a has a host of enemies, just like the elastic in old tube socks.” (Edward, 2010)
  25. 25. Literature Reviews Computers in the Schools Publication details, including instructions for authors and subscription information: http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/title~c ontent=t792303982 Integrating the iPod Touch in K-12 Education: Visions and Vices Savilla Banistera a Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio, USA Online publication date: 26 May 2010
  26. 26. Observations-(Banister, May, 2004) Early childhood education can use mobile devices for learning. Specific content area for elementary and upper elementary content has various applications. More than 60,000 web applications were in place at the time of the study. Challenges for teachers include tracking, charging devices. Time, effort and vigilance is needed to implement this 21st method of learning and teaching
  27. 27. Literature Review Mobile math: math educators and students engage in mobile learning Teresa Franklin Æ Li-Wei Peng Published online: 23 October 2008 Springer Science Business Media, LLC 2008
  28. 28. Observations-(Franklin, Peng2008) Mobile devices have been used for mathematic classes in eighth grade class in Appalachian areas of Ohio. Technical support was needed in addition to math class preparations. Students prefer working one to one or alone rather than in small groups with the iPod. The needs of the project included numerous electrical outlets, charging stations, and trained educators to assist with integration. Survey reflected an overwhelming choice for the use of iPods or mobile devices in formal and informal settings.
  29. 29. Aiming at a Moving Target “Though there is no doubt that eBooks will be an expanding part of information delivery in libraries, the dedicated e-reader han not yet reached a point where the technology is worth investing in, particularly in these though economic times.” (Kiniskova, Okamoto, Zubarev, & Gross)
  30. 30. Library Issues E-readers quickly become outdated. Issues of circulation in libraries have to be considered. At the time of the study distributors have not refined the distribution of the portable reading devices. Copyright/Content Acquisition/Physical Management/Cataloging
  31. 31. Observations-(Kirakova, Okamoto, Zubarev, & Gross 2010) Students assumed that all e-readers use the touch screen method. Sony e-reader 700 was given and shown to additional features. Only 4 of the 163 participants owned an e-book reader. Most student were using the e-reader for the first time. Although a graphic manual was given, the younger student preferred to explore .

  33. 33. Observations-(Cox, 2010) Safari users report information was easier to locate with e-books than print books. At the time of the study Amazon had an inventory of 120,000 e-books. Students express a strong need to also have regular books. Netlibrary contains at least 65,000 title while e-brary contains at least 25,000 titles. Significant grow in the past few years indicates a positive choice for technology
  34. 34. Literature Review D-Lib Magazine October 2004 Volume 10 Number 10 ISSN 1082-9873 E-Books Challenges and Opportunities John Cox Deputy Librarian National University of Ireland, Galway Galway, Ireland <john.cox@nuigalway.ie>
  35. 35. Observations-(Cox, 2004) Safari has proven to provide Irish Universities with many book titles an is very popular . E-brary and netbook has grown tremendously. Managing a library e- subscriptions can be challenging. E-book can work with book in combination and support of books or work solo with benefits. Excitement and “synergy “ potential with e-books and e- readers
  36. 36. Linked Studies Kindle Studies-A & M University in 2008 Clark, D.T., Goodwin, S.P, Samuelson, T., & Coker, C. Performance Measurement and Metrics. A & M. University Results: indicated e-readers were an added expense and can’t replace text.
