Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | User Generat... - 2 views

  • Education 3.0 is a connectivist, heutagogical approach to teaching and learning.  The teachers, learners, networks, connections, media, resources, tools create a a unique entity that has the potential to meet individual learners’, educators’, and even societal needs.  Many resources for Education 3.0 are literally freely available for the taking.
  • Most schools are still living within and functioning through an Education 1.0 model.  They are focusing on an essentialist-based curriculum with related ways of teaching and testing.
  • Taking this one step further or from another angle, moving from Education 1.0 to Education 3.0 can be compared to moving from Pedagogy/Essentialism/Instructivism to Heutagogy/Constructivism/Connectivism

  • The heutagogical, connectivist orientation is closely aligned with Education 3.0. In a heutagogical approach to teaching and learning, learners are highly autonomous and self-determined and emphasis is placed on development of learner capacity and capability. The renewed interest in heutagogy is partially due to the ubiquitousness of Web 2.0, and the affordances provided by the technology. With its learner-centered design, Web 2.0 offers an environment that supports a heutagogical approach, most importantly by supporting development of learner-generated content and learner self-directedness in information discovery and in defining the learning path.  Source: http://www.irrodl.org/index.php/irrodl/article/view/1076
  •   In other words, they can engage in self-determined and self-driven learning where they are not only deciding the direction of their learning journey but they can also produce content that adds value and worth to the related content area or field of study.
  • Choosing the Teaching Orientation
  • It should not be as simple as stating that one, as an educator, uses one teaching orientation over another.  Educators need to examine what they are teaching and the population to whom they are teaching.  For example, procedural knowledge such as how to do first aid or fix a car; or a fixed body of knowledge such as human anatomy (for the medical field) or the study of law is typically best taught through a more teacher directed, “pedagogical” style. It becomes teaching with intentionality and strategically using the teaching and learning philosophies and approaches to reach desired outcomes.
  • The Pedagogy of Mobile Learning
  • With the idea that pedagogy is in line with a instructivist-essentialism method of teaching-learning, mobile learning in this category typically falls into the dissemination of content knowledge via apps. 
  • I use a simple criteria to determine their efficacy, “Would the learner choose to use the app if given the choice or use it during his/her free time?
  • Many project-based learning characteristics (authentic, real world problems; networked learning; use of collaborative digital tools) would fit under the category of the andragogy of mobile learning.
  • The Andragogy of Mobile Learning
  • The Heutagogy of Mobile Learning
  • The learners in a heutagogy of mobile learning environment
  • Determine what they want to learn and develop their own learning objectives
  • Use their own mobile learning devices and technologies to decide how they will learn.
  • Form their own learning communities possibly using social networking tool
  • Utilize the expertise of the educator and other members of their learning communities to suggest and introduce content-related resources.
  • Utilize the expertise of the educator and other members of their learning communities to suggest Web 2.0 and other online tools for that the students could possibly use to demonstrate and produce learning artifacts.
  • Demonstrate their learning through methods and means that work best for them.
  • Take the initiative to seek feedback from the instructor and their peers.  It is their choice to utilize that feedback or not.
  • Forming their Own Interest-Driven Personal Learning Networks (PLNs)
  • Curating
  • Developing a broad array of possible course assignments

Mobile Pulse Survey 2012 - 2 views

  • We at The MASIE Center were curious about how far along organizations are in using mobile devices for learning. In particular, we wanted to explore the current state of - and aspirations for - mobile learning, ask where the interest in mobile learning is coming from, and determine the key challenges and opportunities organizations associate with delivering mobile learning.
  • Interest in delivering learning on mobile devices is high but implementation is in the very early stages of development. Approximately 80% of organizations reported at least a moderate interest in mobile learning
  • less than 30% of organizations have an enterprise strategy for mobile learning.
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • responses demonstrate the interest in many responding organizations to be more effective in providing on-the-job performance support and shorter, more focused learning activitie
  • Pressure to provide learning on mobile platforms is coming mostly from employees, including increasingly mobile workforces. Approximately 50% of survey responders reported that at least 50% of their employees already use their own smartphones/devices to access work-related sites or information

Mobile learning for quality education and social inclusion - 0 views

  •  
    12/2010: "The key objective of this policy brief is to sum up the ways in which mobile-supported learning can contribute to the global commitment to provide quality education for children, youth and adults, as expressed in the goals of Education For All (EFA). Consequently, the brief is particularly concerned with issues of equitable access to education, quality of learning resources, literacy, numeracy, essential life skills and lifelong learning. Opportunities for girls and women are highlighted. Suggestions and recommendations are made regarding strategies for the introduction and sustainability of mobile learning."
