The challenges of mobile learning in the classroom

Neo LMS

This is especially evident over the decade, as schools have increasingly adopted mobile learning as a signature initiative using BYOD and 1:1 programs and investing in tablets to provide their students with access to a wealth of relevant educational content and learning opportunities.

Mobile learning: The good and the bad

Neo LMS

Everywhere we go, here and there, people always seem to have a mobile device in their hands, be it a smartphone or a tablet. It’s almost a sin not to own a mobile device. Our mobile devices are online 24/7. Put that in the context of learning and what do you get? Mobile learning of course. Mobile learning is now a movement and it’s not just about picking up a tablet and off you go.

Are You Leading with Fear? #BYOD

The Mobile Native

Is it a learned behavior? As an educator and parent, I have come to the realization that, like it or not, social media and mobile learning devices are going to be an integral part of our children’s lives. In reality, these challenges have always been present within the classroom.

It's Not a Technology Issue

A Principal's Reflections

This ends up resulting in the formation of rules and policies that severely restrict or prohibit student use of mobile technology and social media as tools to support and/or enhance learning. As the presentation began to focus on mobile learning initiatives a hand immediately went up.

I was able to learn the app very quickly this weekend in preparation for introducing it to secondary fine arts teachers from my school district this morning. This might be a way to get students to create a collaborative presentation, with each student recording a Gami for their part.

Technology won't replace teachers, but.

Learning with 'e's

"Technology won't replace teachers, but teachers who use technology will probably replace teachers who don't" This was just one of the contentious and thought provoking statements made at Learning Through Technology this week in Glasgow. Posted by Steve Wheeler from Learning with e's.

Good Apps vs Very Good Apps

Education with Technology

Good mobile learning practice apps facilitate and transform learning. Mobile learning activities can increase students’ time on task. In doing a mobile learning app, the students concentrate each second as they do the activity. Mobile learning can offer differentiation. Often in a classroom, the teacher goes over the material until everyone has learned it. A good mobile learning app can differentiate.

And the top e-learning trends for 2016 are.

Neo LMS

It’s December, it’s almost the end of the year and it's time to talk about the 2016 e-learning trends. First, mobile learning. Sure, there were lots of devices released in 2014 and the years before, but 2015 was the mobile age. And learning platforms are starting to get mobile developers to publish mobile apps and have them updated on a regular basis. And mixing up gaming with learning makes the latter even more fun.

Transforming the classroom with augmented learning

Neo LMS

Learning has evolved to a point where augmented reality (AR) is a possibility. It’s evolved to a point where the environment adapts to learners needs and as I like to say it the learning process is as interactive and as immersive as ever. What is augmented learning? Augmented learning, by principle, works by providing learners with a whole new dimension of content delivery. The learning content normally found in textbooks becomes alive and interactive.

Top 15 Sites and Apps for Flipped Learning

Technology Tidbits

Basically, it turns a classroom upside down (or on it's head) where the learning of a topic is done at home and then they applied practice or "work" is done at school. With Mobile Learning and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) becoming more mainstream, "Flipped Classroom" models are happening more and more, leading me to create my list of favorite tools for "flipping a classroom". Also, they have an excellent free mobile app for kids, Khan Academy Kids.

Video for learning: Today and tomorrow

Learning with 'e's

We recorded micro-teaches - usually a 10 minute lesson - and then played back the footage to the students so they could see and hear themselves and learn from the experience. Game based learning is another area of development that has already impacted positively on education.

But that hasn’t stopped us from asking a number of experts in education and technology to gaze into their crystal balls and share their thoughts on one major EdTech trend we can expect to see lighting up learning and one major challenge that education will face in 2016. I believe more schools worldwide will find the funds and way to have their students learn with technology. The responsibility for learning is shifting, and greater expectations are being put on students.

It is not that our students are actually learning differently per se, but the environment in which they are learning is dramatically different. Uncommon learning refers to initiatives and pedagogical techniques that are not present in scale in a typical school or district.
