20 Eye-Opening Stats You Probably Didn't Know About Mobile Learning Essa Academy Five-Minute Film Festival: Mobile Learning As technology evolves, it's important to make time for fresh beginnings and innovative ideas. For some, this could include a new perspective on the devices that are becoming so ubiquitous in our lives -- mobile gadgets like smartphones, tablets, mp3 players, and eReaders. Schools around the country are struggling with how to deal with these gadgets: is it better to embrace them and incorporate them into the learning process? Ban them and try to keep them out of schools? In the playlist below, I've gathered some videos about educators and schools who are welcoming the sea change that is mobile learning.

Aprendizaje mediante dispositivos móviles De manera incremental y dondequiera que estén, las personas esperan acceder a Internet y al rico entramado de conocimiento que éste contiene. Los dispositivos móviles, incluyendo teléfonos inteligentes y tabletas, posibilitan a sus usuarios hacer exactamente eso, vía redes de celulares o en forma inalámbrica. El número creciente de suscriptores de dispositivos móviles, unido a la evolución sin precedentes de éstos, han abierto la puerta a una miríada de usos educativos. Instituciones de aprendizaje en todo el mundo están explorando alternativas para que sus sitios Web, sus materiales educativos, sus recursos y las oportunidades que ofrecen estén todas disponibles en línea y optimizadas para dispositivos móviles.

¿Sirven realmente las tablets en el aprendizaje?Think Big Desde hace tiempo se discute el impacto de las nuevas tablets sobre la docencia y el aprendizaje en las aulas. Hoy analizamos cuáles son los resultados más novedosos sobre el uso de este tipo de recursos. Hace solo unos días, se anunciaba que Apple vendería más de 35.000 iPads a colegios de Los Ángeles, gracias a un acuerdo entre ambas partes por el que los de Cupertino percibirían más de 30 millones de dólares. El viejo sueño de Steve Jobs, es decir, revolucionar la educación mediante su transformación digital, poco a poco se iba haciendo realidad. Tim Cook, el CEO de Apple, anunciaba la noticia con la satisfacción de que la adopción de este recurso tecnológico estaba (y está) marcando un antes y un después en la historia del sistema educativo. ¿Sustituirán en el futuro las tablets a los libros? Está claro que las nuevas tecnologías y recursos con los que contamos actualmente están haciendo cambiar nuestra vida de manera radical. Papel vs. tablet: ¿Cómo afecta a la comprensión lectora?

Aprendizaje móvil: M-Learning El último monográfico de SCOPEO: M-Learning, en España, Portugal y América Latina describe de forma bastante exhaustiva el estado actual de la cuestión referente al aprendizaje móvil, mobile learning o m-learning y su lectura ha impulsado este artículo. Este trabajo es una visión particular sobre este tipo de enseñanza-aprendizaje, centrado únicamente en tres dispositivos donde se mencionan algunas claves sobre su presente y futuro. El m-learning se define como el aprendizaje a través de dispositivos móviles pequeños, con conexión inalámbrica a Internet, como pueden ser los teléfonos móviles (celulares), tabletas (iPad y sus clones), agendas electrónicas, etc. [Wikipedia] ¿De qué entorno educativo estamos hablando? Antes de continuar hay que aclarar algunos conceptos que muchas veces no se tienen en cuenta a la hora de hablar de estos temas. Este artículo va enfocado a la educación obligatoria, es decir, la de los menores de edad -niños y adolescentes-. ¿Existe el M-Learning? Mensajería.

However, it isn’t just a matter of scaling down your design – it’s a new platform with a new set of interaction patterns and limitations. In this article we’ll explore seven eight UI limitations to be aware of when going from desktop to mobile web. 1) No hover state On smartphones there’s no hover state (not yet anyways). This can be a challenge for pages with a lot of content or features as the interface quickly gets bloated with links and buttons that would normally only be shown on hover. Visible – the content or feature is accessible from visual means. The last approach, convention, can help simplify the interface but also runs the risk of obscurity. 2) Slow and error-prone typing Typing on a touch keyboard is a slow and error-prone exercise so make sure to keep your form fields to an absolute minimum and pre-select clever defaults.

Typography in Mobile Design: Important Aspects and Examples What makes mobile typography special is the restrictive nature of mobile screens; they are small and used in brightly lit areas so that it is difficult to see anything. Therefore, when it comes to typography for mobile devices you have to be very careful about how you go about it. Most people would agree that there are three big components that help making mobile typography great: size, contrast and spacing. Readability Readability is defined as the amount of effort a user has to put in, in order to read and understand text. Size If a user cannot read what you are displaying because the text is too small, it’s a very big problem. Contrast Just like a blue text on a red background is a no-no on a typical website’s design, it too is a no-no on mobile devices. Spacing The last thing that you should always keep in mind is that spacing the letters, words and lines of text from one another is also a crucial part in establishing solid readability of your text.

M-Learning’s dirty little secrets I have a confession to make. At my workplace a little while ago, I created a smartphone-friendly version of our online induction course. Ownership of smartphones is relatively common in this corner of the world, and a large proportion of our new recruits are Gen Y. So conventional wisdom dictated that a mobile version of the course would be a smash hit. It tanked. But my confession is not that it tanked. You see, when you have been in the e-learning game for as long as I have, you learn a few things that a surprising number of my peers in the broader L&D industry don’t know – or perhaps don’t want to know! This insight bubbled to the surface during my little m-course experiment. To explain why it failed, let me share with you m-learning’s dirty little secrets… SECRET #1. Some may say most people won’t train inside business hours, but let’s remain generous. The working day is typically defined as Monday to Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm, or thereabouts. SECRET #2. SECRET #3. Oh the quirks! SECRET #4.

6 Time-Saving Writing Apps For Students For anyone who has ever had to write a paper, you know that getting the ideas down when they come to you is important. And for those of us who are (ahem) procrastinators (*looks away innocently*) getting the ideas down and the writing done when you’re inspired is key. For those of us who were educated in the dark ages before smartphones and tablets, if you wanted to write on the go you were pretty much out of luck. Now, there are a host of options for organizing your writing and writing on the go with different apps and web tools. Chronicle and Chapters Chronicle is basically a simple journal that you can use to either jot down ideas, make lists, or full-on write. My Writing Spot My Writing Spot is an app that offers the useful feature of syncing with an associated desktop writing app, so that you don’t have to work out of multiple files, or go through the annoyance of transferring plain text files into whatever format you want to work with on your desktop or laptop computer.

6 Higher Education Institutions Leading the way with Mobile Learning Apps As the high-tech world evolves from dial-up access to lightning-fast smartphones, students benefit from a more mobile classroom. But as anyone with a smartphone or tablet already knows, no two apps are alike. Some universities offer fully functional online classrooms in their mobile apps, while others only offer a directory and map. A mobile-friendly classroom means more access for students who are used to already getting things done on the go with their handheld devices (If you’re someone who enjoys creating apps, you may want to learn how to become a mobile app developer). Students see big incentives for mobile learning Incoming students at Seton Hall University received free smartphones in 2012, according to U.S. University of Phoenix Students at the University of Phoenix study in over 200 institutions and online.
