Mobile Devices & Apps Transforming Teaching and Learning PreK – Ph.D. Robbie K. Melton, 1st App-ologist Tennessee Board of Regents

Organization Effectiveness and Strategic Initiatives Education On Demand and within Your Hands HARNESS TODAY’S NEWEST TECHNOLOGIES AND DEVICES FOR TEACHING, LEARNING, AND WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

Mobile Learning • Mobile learning is a customized experience based on the device, the features, and the learner. • Example: A traditional computer lab will look the same across the world (same monitor, computer, etc.). Unlike mobile devices, where the user dictates the device, the learning environment and experiences.

mLearning vs. eLearning Mobile learning on Smart Phones differs from e-learning on computers in that activities are not set in one place and can be conducted at any time and at any place.

“Education On-Demand ~ In Your Hands” Latest Innovations & Best Practices Regarding the Use of Mobile Devices ~ Apps ~ Emerging Technologies for Enhancing Teaching & Learning in Higher Education Apps Tablets SmartPhones eReaders

Definition Mobile devices are digital, easily portable, usually owned and controlled by an individual rather than an institution, can access the internet, have multimedia capabilities, and can facilitate a large number of tasks, particularly those related to communication. UNESCO, 2014 Policies Guidelines for Mobile Learning.

“Today mobile technologies are often common even in areas where schools, books, and computers are scarce. As price of mobile phone ownership continues to decline, more and more people, including those in extremely impoverished areas, are likely to own and know how to use a mobile device.” UNESO, 2014

Benefits of Content Caching: Access Your Mobile App Without an Internet Connection AppBurst focuses on building mobile apps that alleviate the burden of having a stable internet connection. Our mobile apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices all store a significant amount content on a user’s device for offline use -- a feature known as mobile app content caching. A mobile application’s data can therefore be accessed without an internet connection, enabling users to enjoy 24/7 access to content.

Operating Systems • Google's Android operating system is on more than three-quarters of all smart phones that shipped in 2013, with Apple's iOS making up most of the remainder. However, Windows smart phones are beginning to see substantial growth, with 2013 shipments in the tens of millions. • As we previously reported, in 2013, more than 1 billion smart phones were shipped worldwide — amounting to a new smart phone for roughly every seven human beings in the world.

Nursing & Allied Health

• Physicians are widely known as early adopters of smartphones, and that might be partly because they have been a popular subject for researchers conducting surveys about the impact of mobile health in hospitals. A Study last year by Wolters Kluwer Health’s Lippincott Williams Wilkins (LLW) of 3,900 nurses indicated in early 2012, 71 percent of nurses were already using smartphones professionally. • Enspektos found that physicians were more trusting of medical information in their mobile apps than nurses were. That statistic complements another finding from the LLW nurses survey: Of the 71 percent of nurses who already use smartphones, 87 percent also want a printed version of the same content they have in their app.

10 Must-have iPhone Applications for Registered Nurses As a registered nurse, implementing patient care plans for your patients can be stressful, especially if you have to sift through several textbooks and spiral bound assessment books for medical information.
