JUNE 2, 2011 Use Smartphones in class, say school principals
In recent years, there has been explosive growth in students creating, manipulating, and sharing content online (National School Boards Association, 2007). The National Association of Secondary School Principals have been trying to make sense of the whirlwind that is Social and Mobile Technologies. They have just released a position statement , summarizing their thoughts on the matter … and it is surprisingly good! Unfortunately, many principals first became aware of social technologies under unpleasant circumstances, such as conflicts stemming from social media exchanges.

SEPTEMBER 3, 2007 5 year olds need mobile, playful ICT instead of laptops!
Teaching ICT to primary aged children using tools designed for office-based adults isn't the best approach. This is the result of a study recently completed at Stirling University in Scotland, which found that it was far more helpful to get them started with the technologies that fit more naturally into their lives: digital cameras, video cameras, electronic keyboard, barcode scanners and mobile

FEBRUARY 26, 2007 Learning english via SMS
The mlearn2006 effect must be contagious. Athabasca University in Canada hosted the conference last year, and this year they are in the news for a pilot project using mobile learning to teach english grammar on their phones. Excellent news! It is a great subject area, because the learners are often very motivated, and there are ways of supporting language learning via all sorts of media

JANUARY 10, 2007 psp, TV, mp3, pda, mobile phones: can we REALLY put learning onto them all?
How do we cope with supporting real, valid, mobile learning on a huge range of devices? The more time I spend surrounded by mobile learners, the more this question comes back to haunt me. We have used many different approaches and devices already, but still the issue is FAR from simple. There are a wide spectrum of strategies. At one end we have learning that is VERY device specific

FEBRUARY 26, 2007 mobile assessment?
We have had a lot of interest from schools and HE recently about using mobile quizzes, and mediaBoards for assessment. In fact, I was taken a bit by surprise by the eagerness of different practitioners to assess learner skills - though in hindsight I guess it makes sense. Assessing learners and learning with technology is both a complex and a rewarding process. There are many examples of rather

MARCH 23, 2007 Is TES losing the thread?
The hot-topic of the day in the UK technology learning community seems to be a collection of articles in today's TES. The first article refers to the fantastic, award winning work being done in Pembrokeshire College supporting hard to reach learners with various innovative approaches. The second article, an editorial, seems to use the work to rampage against investing money into innovation and

MOBLEARN How to mix your mobile learning cocktail with some traditional ingredients?
| TUESDAY, MARCH 27, 2007
We have been getting a lot of recent interest from mainstream, traditional e-learning providers who are trying to understand how they can add a mobile dimension to what they already have. This is of course great news, because in my book, "the more formats the better". Why prescribe where and how your learners will access their learning if you don't have to. stumbled over an American site MORE >>
MOBLEARN TES: the one that got away?
| WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 2007
Last week I was rather shocked by an article in the TES (Times Educational Supplement) that seemed to suggest that we shouldn't bother making an effort to support reluctant learners. As a die-hard techie it is a rare moment that I actually write anything (other than blog postings, of course), but I was enthused enough to send a gobsmacked-type email to the TES Editors. Shock-horror: they MORE >>

MOBLEARN Which phones are my students using?
| MONDAY, JULY 2, 2007
We build applications for all sorts of different phones, and despite the hype, many of the development tools and platforms we use are fairly stable: (MMS, SMS, Flash, Flash Lite, C for PPC etc). The one technology that we seem to be endlessly tweaking is Java for phones (J2ME), because despite the good-karma that surrounds java's "runs on any device" ethos, the harsh reality is that each phone MORE >>
MOBLEARN How do we keep all our mobile devices charged?
| MONDAY, AUGUST 13, 2007
We own and manage a lot of mobile devices. Like between 100 - 1000 depending which ones you count. Most of them are Windows Mobile, which means they are fairly power hungry, and need regular charging, but with this many devices, how do you safely and securely avoid tripping over cables, and sitting on devices? Plan 1: is our magical, homemade cupboard. It gets rave reviews by the visitors to MORE >>
