    8. 8. Mummies:Windows tablets at Museum Studies• Windows tablets• Custom ‘app’ – simply a clever Powerpoint show• Info from and video of British Museum staff• Field trip and group work• Collect photos and impressions on the day• Report emailed in by 10am next morning• Groups meet for feedback/discussion
    9. 9. Mummies: Windows tablets at Museum Studies“It seemed ideal to have short, taped discussions about ethical issues by Museum staff – then students could bring the tablets with them, hear what the staff had to say, and analyse and engage in the evidence that they saw.”“The students didn’t blink when we gave the tablets out. …it was unremarkable for them. It was completely normal.” (University of Leicester, 2011)
    10. 10. Mummies: Windows tablets - negative points• Noisy in the museum gallery• Battery life• Issues with amount, size of text I homemade ‘app’• Next time will put some material onto VLE

    12. 12. War Zones: iPads• Decision to send each student, anywhere in the world, an iPad• Bespoke app (by KuKuApps of Leicester)• Simple helpsheet to install the app plus others (Kindle app, Goodreader, iTunesU….)• Students work on the go when internet not available• App allows multimedia material offline• Students still need VLE for assignment submission
    13. 13. War Zones: iPads• “I have realised the iPad is built for this type of distance learning study.”• 93% iPad useful or very useful part of study pack• 8 out of 13 used the app more than VLE• Study offline• All the additional apps aid learning – iTunes U, mindmapping, note-taking, ebooks• Paperless learning• Value of multimedia
    14. 14. War Zones: iPads - negatives• Wifi so intermittent in my area, I need 3G• Is it sustainable to keep up with bespoke app?• Amazon not available in one country (Sudan?)• 1 respondent said they preferred paper only (neither iPad nor VLE)
