Week 5 assignment

Published in: Education
  • This is an actual innovation that I am working on at school. The equipment will be comprised of smart phones and net books. It will not be all inclusive of the district, just the high school. The students out of pocket expense for insurance will help fray some of the cost for the district. It is still fuzzy, but I hope it unfolds nicely.

  • Roxanne,
    Your story board seems to contain quitre a bit of information. I am very interested in the timeline of innovation on slide 14. What is your source for this information and do you think, with the financial climate as it currently exists, that this timeline can be maintained? Of what physical devices do you anticipate this innovation being comprised?

Mobile learning storyboard week5

  1. 1. MOBILE LEARNING STORYBOARD Created by: Roxanne Wright EDUC 7101/8841 Diffusion and Innovation of Technology in Education Dr. Moller, Instructor January 6, 2011
  2. 2. Innovation-Decision Process Knowledge is when one becomes aware of the existence of an innovation and understands how it works (Rogers, 2003). Persuasion is when one forms a good or bad opinion towards the innovation (Rogers, 2003). Decision is when one makes a choice to adopt or not to adopt the innovation (Rogers, 2003). Implementation is when one puts an innovation to use (Rogers, 2003). Confirmation occurs when one seeks validation about the innovation decision and may reverse the decision if negative messages are received about the innovation (Rogers, 2003).
  3. 3. Knowledge Mobile learning is the no longer the wave of the future. It is the “now” innovation for learning. The ©Apple iPad and iPhone, netbooks, other smart phones, ereaders, and electronic tablets are all mobile devices that are capable of “on the go” learning. These devices can store and retrieve information. Convenience of choosing asynchronous and synchronous communication using WIFI
  4. 4. Knowledge concl… Access email and send email Check online class portal and participate in online discussions Capture and share real time videos, audio, and pictures Read online material and books Create and view documents and presentations Collaborate through text, voice, and even social networking sites
  5. 5. Persuasion Researched based evidence supports motivation for learning by neo-millennium students Faculty understands the benefits of the technology, but skeptical about student abuse of the technology Faculty questions the use of cell phones as learning tools due to the no cell phone policy at school Faculty would feel comfortable if cell phones were not a part of the mobile learning equation, and other mobile technologies took precedent
  6. 6. Persuasion concl… Students excited about the possibilities of collaboration and experiential learning opportunities Administration excited about becoming the first high school in the state to implement mobile learning as a part of the curriculum Administration contemplating how to redirect the no cell phone rule and yet preserve the possibility of mobile learning using the smart phone
  7. 7. Decision Faculty goes to training on pedagogy for mobile learning using the face to face and blended learning protocol Faculty attends workshop on classroom management strategies for the mobile learning environment Senior students watch video on integrated learning using mobile technologies Administration polls faculty and senior students for feedback on the possible successes of mobile learning based on training, workshops, and video conferences attended
  8. 8. Decision concl… Administration communicated poll results to Superintendent Superintendent announces decision to adopt at board meeting Board approves adoption and creates a budget to pilot the program using business and physics classes with juniors and seniors for the upcoming semester
  9. 9. Implementation The high school creates section of junior and senior mixture in physics and personal finance to pilot the mobile learning program Teachers redesign district curriculum objectives for each area to include learning targets using the mobile technology as the learning tool Participating students are assigned a smart phone (Android) and iPad for the semester.
  10. 10. Implementation concl… Students are responsible for the insurance protection before devices are issued iPad used for data entry/retrieval, word processing, email, collaboration, Internet use and presentation creation Smart phone used for multimedia capture (audio, video, and pictures) and collaboration
  11. 11. Confirmation Survey conducted by administration for teachers and students involved in the pilot program Progress monitored by administration and presented to the board Projects assessed, communicated, and displayed for other faculty and students to observe
  12. 12. Confirmation concl… Teachers and administration develop ongoing data to present to the board for further consideration and permanent adoption Administration ask for 3 mobile learning labs for the entire high school of 850 students to be shared by teachers by booking through the online resource center Administration asks for pilot teachers to be able to keep and use their mobile learning tools for future classes
