Why Do We need mLearning

PDAs in Education “ Our team carried out a detailed study of how radiology is taught and practised. One clear finding was that trainees have very little spare time. They can’t take the time to sit in libraries or computer labs, and so any computer- based learning must fit into the gaps in their busy schedule - in the hospital, at home, when travelling - which means a personal and portable system.” (Sharples, 2000) ‏ The immediate readiness for use has been highlighted by users in other studies, a typical student comment being a PDA is something that is “unobtrusive and neat and that could always be ready at hand” (Waycott et al., 2002) ‏

What Do I Need to Consider What benefits do you expect the mobile learning to bring to your course for your students What benefits do you expect the device to bring to your course for you? What disadvantages can you foresee? Are other people involved enthusiastic

What benefits do you expect the mobile learning to bring to your course for your students

What benefits do you expect the device to bring to your course for you?

What disadvantages can you foresee?

Are other people involved enthusiastic

Practical Issues Do you need special software on the device or in the labs Have you got suitable materials for deliver on the chosen device How are you going to transfer the materials Do the materials provided on the devices need to be available in other forms as well,e.g. for partially sighted students?

Evaluation

Why Is Evaluation Difficult? Evaluation IS difficult

Evaluation IS difficult Students cannot or will not always be able to tell an evaluator about their abilities, knowledge, values,needs,preferences,goals or feelings, or any changes in them-they may not be able to put them into words,they may be too embarrassed to disclose or reveal. (Traxler 2003) ‏
