Mobile learning
John Dewey, writing in the early years of the twentieth century, may not have foreseen the proliferation of 21st century ‘mobile devices’ but, in the quotation to the right, he does point out something that remains relevant: that mobile learning involves change, initiative and adaptability. Mobile learning involves change in the sense that the ability to communicate with tutors and peers, as well as access learning resources, changes what is possible in education. It takes initiative for leaders to create a vision to sustain that change and, finally, mobile learning requires adaptability by members of staff to carry out the change. This infoKit is a practical guide to thinking through the issues relating to institutional adoption of mobile learning. It follows a JISC Mobile and Wireless Technologies Review which delves deeper into the theory behind mobile learning and the wider context. Emerging Practice in a Digital Age Bee motif

12 Principles Of Mobile Learning 12 Principles Of Mobile Learning by Terry Heick Ed note: This post has been updated and republished from a 2012 post Mobile Learning is about self-actuated personalization. What is m-learning? Hot off the press, we are pleased to present the Mobile Learning infoKit. Launched at ALT-C 2011 The infoKit offers valuable advice for any organisation starting out in m-learning, as was compiled with interviews and contributions from all the main thinkers, creators and educators in this space See the overview presentation (below) for a great introduction to m-learning, and if you want more you can download the entire infoKit at Many months in development, this infokit was put together by Doug and those nice people at Jisc infoNet as a service to the education community.

Mobile learning #1: The big picture [Or: What is it and what's it got to do with me?] 1 The big picture The sale and use of mobile handheld devices has soared over the last few years. The 2010 Horizon Report predicts that mobile technology will be mainstream by the end of this year.

Professor Mike Sharples - People Profiles - Open University Profile For further information see My research concerns human-centred design of new technologies for learning. It involves gaining a deep understanding of how people work, play, learn and interact as a foundation for the design of novel socio-technical systems (people in interaction with technology). I am Academic Lead at Futurelearn, and co-investigator on the Wolfson OpenScience Laboratory and Juxtalearn projects. How Teachers Make Cell Phones Work in the Classroom A.P. Chemistry students use their cell phones to answer their teacher's question. When we talk about using cell phones in class, we’re not just talking about using cell phones in class.

CAMEL Tangible Benefits of e-Learning See the final report1 and case study template1 the project developed The CAMEL Tangible Benefits of e-Learning Project aimed to collate and share the tangible and real benefits to staff, learners and institutions of e-learning, through a discipline and academic department focus by using the CAMEL model devised by JISC infoNet and ALT. Its objectives were to produce: up to 16 institutional case studies, with a subject discipline focus, to identify tangible benefits of e-learning; and report on the CAMEL workshops and evaluation of the process (also identifying any real or perceived weaknesses or threats of e-learning). The final outputs are 37 case studies from 16 institutions, so the project has exceeded its original case study target. Approach Outputs

The Evaluation of Next Generation Learning Technologies: the Case of Mobile Learning to deliver informal and life-long learning, alongside conventional structured coursesand programmes; and other components of a larger political agenda such as personalised learning, work-based learning and skills-for-life to engage with industry and commerce by delivering more training and morevocational education; to compete globally and deliver internationally to work within more and more precise quality and regulatory regimes Tangible Benefits of e-Learning: Does investment yield interest? Over the last decade extraordinary developments in technology have taken place and the education sector has not been slow to invest in technology-enhanced learning. The issue of whether this investment is actually delivering tangible benefits for learners, teachers and institutions is however one that has taxed both institutional leaders and public funding bodies. The JISC e-Learning Programme set out to explore the diversity of current e-learning practice across the sector and to find out what evidence there is relating to return on investment. A project led by JISC infoNet, in partnership with ALT and the Higher Education Academy, worked with 16 universities and 8 subject areas to investigate this question. The project produced 37 case studies which show clear evidence of a range of significant benefits resulting from investment in various types of e-learning activity. Defining Tangible Benefits

12 Sources for Free Images to Use on Your Blog and Social Media Posts November 3, 2014 by Tricia Goss The image you choose can make or break your social media updates, blog posts and other content. But, finding the right picture to accompany your post can be challenging. Not only do you need to find one that complements your post and grabs readers’ attention, but you also have to make sure you are free to share the pic. You can purchase stock photos, but that could take a bite out of your budget and even then, the choices are not always ideal.
