  • ECAR 2011 survey:• A full-sized laptop computer is one that is designed to be portable; it usually weighs more than two pounds; the keyboard and monitor are usually attached to each other. • A lightweight netbook or tablet computer is highly portable; it usually weighs less than two pounds; its monitor is small (usually 10” or less) and the keyboard may be small and built in or the keys may be displayed in video on a touch screen. iPad is included here. • A dedicated e-book reader is a portable device whose sole function is as a platform for reading electronic books and certain other electronic publications. Examples include the Kindle, NOOK, and the like; iPad and similar tablet devices serve many other functions and so are not included here. • A handheld device is usually about the size of a cellular telephone and often includes one; it has a screen that can show e-mail messages, web pages, video, etc.; and its keyboard is a few inches across, at most. We are not interested in devices that are plain cellular phones or are music/video players only, such as certain iPods. Pew: smartphone defined as adults who either say their phone is a smartphone when asked or say their phoen runs on the Android, blackberry, iPhone, Palm, or Windows platforms.
  • NOTICE DATE… SEPT 2012And as of 2011, 56.24% of Americans have attended college (some college  PhD): (US Census data)
  • 88% cell phone; EDUCAUSE doesn’t even ask undergrads whether they own a cell phone; only if smartphoneDesktop down while laptop going upSpikes in e-reader & tablets (chuckle over tablet; both Susan and I had them before they were cheap…I miss mini-me)
  • Over number of those attending/have attended college;Average college age ranges- high %Transition on “no statistical significance”
  • Want to especially focus on growth in Race/Ethnicity less than one yearWhite—15%Black & Hispanic – 5% --STILL HIGHER
  • Mobile Access Gap…Black & Hispanic mostly go online through mobileLower income householdsTELL STORY ABOUT MY MESA PROJECT
  • UGH…this begins to blow up the story I want to make about socio-economics & access…10% is still a recognizable number
  • HOWEVER…Students at two-year institutions differ from other undergraduates in their technology ownership and preferences. Students at associate’s colleges and other two-year programs are more likely to own stationary technologies, such as desktop computers and stationary gaming and video devices, particularly in comparison to students at doctorate-granting institutions. Students at institutions that award master’s and doctorate degrees are more likely to own portable technologies, such as laptops, iPods, webcams, thumb drives, and Wi-Fi devices. Still, there are both mobile devices (e.g., iPads) and stationary technologies (e.g., HDTVs) for which there are no significant differences among students at institutions of different Carnegie Classifications. In addition, the preference for Windows platforms is significantly higher among students attending associate’s colleges or other two-year programs than it is among those attending other institutions. Seventy four percent of students at associate’s colleges prefer Windows PCs, compared to 58 percent of all other students.
  • THE INTERNET OF THINGShe Internet of Things has become a sort of shorthand for network-aware smart objects that connect the physical world with the world of information. A smart object has four key attributes: it is small, and thus easy to attach to almost anything; it has a unique identifier; it has a small store of data or information; and it has a way to communicate that information to an external device on demand. The Internet of Things extends that concept by using TCP/IP as the means to convey the information, thus making objects addressable (and findable) on the Internet.
  • My Rant…EDUCAUSE Quarterly, March 29, 2011
  • LMS apps are limited to what they allow; for example, Moodle’s app only allows consumptionExcited about WordPress, multiple instancesGoogle Apps generally play well (docs/drive, calendar, etc.)…started building a site one day on my phone
  • Image editing, tons of apps; video editing growing
  • BYOD—you’ve scene what forcing a colleague or student on to a platform in a computer lab does…???Hacking—think of it as an aspect of the rhetorical context…
  • Report: Mobile IT in Higher Education, 2011“Institutions pursuing a balanced approach to mobile development—one that includes elements from several strategies, such as mobile web, native apps, or mobile frameworks—tend to report greater progress.”Mobile frameworks: cell coverage and ubiquitouswi-fi
  • DO WE HAVE A CHOICE? Copyright (typical problem w/multimodal; mobile invention actually might help)Privacy & Human SubjectsFERPA (shared devices, web apps)Accessibility (hardware, software, and final compositions)

    17. 17. Mobile DeviceTeaching & Learning: What, Why & How
    18. 18. What is mobile learning? “Individuals have had access to ‘portable learning devices’ since the advent of the printing press; we call them books.”Mobile Teaching vs. Mobile Learning• Higher education historically has focused on instructors teaching rather than students learning, an ineffective approach that could seriously hamper the promise of mobile learning.• Successful student learning emerges from active engagement, connection to the students prior knowledge, and simulation of real world experiences — all facilitated by engaging learners senses through multimedia.• Higher education should stop thinking about these powerful mobile multimedia devices as only consumption devices — to live up to the promise of mobile learning, students should use them as production devices.
    19. 19. Why mobile learning?“Given students’ ownership of Studentsand preference for small, • are unconfident that theymobile devices, institutions have the technology skills toand instructors may have an meet their needs.opportunity to make more • want/need for instructorseffective use of mobile to model incorporatingtechnologies to communicate technology intowith, educate, and support teaching, learning, andstudents. Many students seem research.eager to communicate morewith their instructors online,to use their mobile devices forcoursework, and to reach outfor help when they need it.”ECAR 2011, page. 30

How will we support it?CIOs & InstitutionsAlthough…“In general, IT organizations believe they are reasonablywell prepared to meet the expected demands for mobilecomputing across the four areas of generalcommunication, instruction, administration, andresearch.”• More than 1/3, no spending on mobile-enablement• Varied staffing levels dedicated to mobile• 40% did not mobile-enable any service• More services geared towards students ECAR Report: Mobile IT in Higher Education, 2011
