Transparency is the natural byproduct of connectivity, mobility, and collaboration. As planning, thinking, performance, and reflection are both mobile and digital, they gain an immediate audience with both local and global communities through social media platforms from twitter to Facebook, Edmodo to Instagram.
Mobile learning development in the
In April 2012, the decision was taken by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education to equip all faculty and students in the Foundation programs of the three Federal Institutions; the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT), Zayed University (ZU), and the United Arab Emirates University (UAEU), with iPads for the academic year starting September 2012.
The Foundation program at each institution aims to prepare high school graduates with the necessary academic skills for undergraduate study (including English language proficiency, IT skills, research skills, library skills, study skills).
Mobile learning development in
Using mobile learning and other technology is often challenging to students’ capabilities and sometimes intimidating, especially for those who have never used it before. At United Arab Emirates University (UAEU), we explored how classroom use of mobile technology made a significant improvement when it was well integrated into students' personal skills, including organization skills, communication skills, assuming responsibilities, critical reading and writing skills, problem solving, class engagement, increasing learning interest, emphasizing community contribution and self-evaluation.
The iTeam is a unit that provides all kinds of Mobile Learning and iPad services for SASP using UAEU students and their potential to engage them in Mobile Learning activities.

Experiencing the Mobile Learning environment.
The term Mobile Learning(also called m-learning) has different meanings for different communities,such as e-learning, educational technology and distance education, that focuses on learning with mobile devices. Mobile learning is defined as "learning across multiple contexts, through social and content interactions, using personal electronic devices”In other words, with the use of mobile devices, learners can learn anywhere and at any time.
M-learning technologies include handheld computers, MP3 players, notebooks, mobile phones and tablets. M-learning focuses on the mobility of the learner, interacting with portable technologies, and learning that reflects a focus on how society and its institutions can accommodate and support an increasingly mobile population.

In the mobile learning environment of the UAEU new learning units, modules and activities were designed to support students in the new learning process both at an individual and at a collaborative level: individually to empower students’ study and lifelong skills and in groups to help them take on the challenge of a group project to help improve their collaboration, communication, problem solving and critical thinking
The UAE iPad initiative meant that the nationwide launch of over 14,000 iPads was unique by all accounts for any nation around the world and its implications for the education of Emirati post-secondary students were expected to be far reaching.
The three institutions were encouraged to move education into the mobile learning era, to ‘disrupt’ traditional notions of teaching and learning and align these with the needs of young 21st century learners.

UAEU Hosts the First Global Mobile Learning Congress 2012
His Excellency Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, UAE Minister of Higher Education & Scientific Research, and UAEU Chancellor, addressed the opening of the First Global Mobile Learning Congress at UAEU, convened collaboratively by United Arab Emirates University (UAEU), Zayed University and the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT)
In an increasingly technology-centered world, where handheld devices are in daily use in every aspect of modern society, it is unsurprising that these tools are now heralding the new mobile learning, or m-learning “revolution”.With access to vast amounts of information and content anytime and anywhere from around the world, by way of e-learning, or m-learning technologies there are endless opportunities for formal and informal teaching and learning, inside and outside the classroom. Moreover, m-learning allows students to work in groups, or independently, at their own pace to meet class or individual projects, whether they are in the classroom, at home or elsewhere.
The Congress investigated the application of a variety of mobile learning technologies in and out of the classroom setting. Conference delegates will consider how new educational and technological methods and concepts for supporting formal and informal learning are being, and can be, implemented in their own settings.
UAEU to Host First International Mobile Learning Conference
The United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) and its Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) hosted the first E-Learning Conference titled ‘Embracing Mobile Learning’ on November 20th to the 21st, 2013 at the new University campus in Al Ain.
The conference served as a platform for modeling best practices, and showed how mobile technology can be integrated effectively into teaching and learning. It will also be a venue to share research into the assessment and effectiveness of mobile strategies and their influence on student engagement and improved learning. Participants will also have a chance to network, attend professional development workshops, and visit the vendor and exhibition area of the conference.
This international conference attracted educational representatives from all over the world including secondary and higher education faculty members from all disciplines, graduate students preparing to become professional educators, instructional technologists, course designers, faculty developers, higher education executives, CIOs and IT administrators, and business & government representatives who work with higher education institutions and use social media and networking, along with the participation of UAEU students, staff, and faculty interested in the newest mobile technology.
Mobile Learning around The World
Mobile learning Today
Why educators Need to use it
Mobile learning is authentic!
It assumes the learner starts with a need and motivation for gathering information to accomplish a task; with the iPad and other mobile devices, learners seek information on their own will enabling to educate themselves directly.
Mobile learning is the response to change in communication patterns.
Communication has changed in two ways; people nowadays want information instantly and communicate through social platforms which enables interactive, anytime-anywhere learning.
Mobile learning and technology provides the global community access to education.
Mobile learning is Proliferating! almost every person from the age 8 owns some kind of mobile device,everyone has smartphones and if not smartphone they will have their tablets. Educators must adopt mobile learning in order to keep up with today's students needs and educational demands.
Mobile learning is integrated into everyday life; it provides a set of tools that are already integrated into professional contexts preparing students for the work force.
12 Principles of
Technology like tablets PCs, apps, and access to broadband internet are lubricating the shift to mobile learning, but a truly immersive mobile learning environment goes beyond the tools for learning to the lives and communities valued by each individual learner.It is only within these communities that the native context of each learner can be fully understood. Here, in these communities that are both local and digital, a ”need to know” is born, knowledge accrues incrementally, progress resonates naturally, and a full picture of each learner as a human being fully emerges.
Where do people use
A mobile learning environment is about access to content, peers, experts, portfolio artifacts, credible sources, and previous thinking on relevant topics. It can be actuated via a smartphone or iPad, laptop or in-person, but access is constant–which in turn shifts a unique burden to learn on the shoulders of the student.
As mobile learning is a blend of the digital and physical, diverse metrics (i.e., measures) of understanding and “performance of knowledge” will be available.
The cloud is the enabler of “smart” mobility. With access to the cloud, all data sources and project materials are constantly available, allowing for previously inaccessible levels and styles of revision and collaboration.
Mobile learning is convenient in that it is accessible from virtually anywhere. Mobile learning, like other forms of e-learning, is also collaborative. Sharing is almost instantaneous among everyone using the same content, which leads to the reception of instant feedback and tips. This highly active process has proven to increase exam scores from the fiftieth to the seventieth percentile, and cut the dropout rate in technical fields by 22 percent. M-learning also brings strong portability by replacing books and notes with small devices, filled with tailored learning contents. In addition, it is simple to utilize mobile learning for a more effective and entertaining experience.
A very simple concept yet somewhat new to the mobile learning realm. Short, 2-3 minute snippets designed to extend classroom learning; can be either pushed to or pulled by the learner via mobile device or tablet.
2. Converting and pushing key documents
Performance support at its very core. Ability to dynamically access key information (FAQs, Best Practices, Presentation Materials, etc.); enabling the learner to get data/insight exactly when and where they need it.
3. Extending the blend
Many companies want to continue some form of classroom training, however, are in need of a mechanism to keep the learning alive. Mobile is a great way to give the learner short bursts of data that effectively connects the dots on classroom training and drive real learning/mastery of new skills.
to use Mobile learning technology
4. On The go workforce
Likely the number one use of MLT today. This group of employees have an absolute ‘on demand’ need for quick updates, competitive information, product specs, presentation details, etc. MLT can be hugely important to their success… or lack thereof.
5. Compliance training
A major flashpoint that has required careful study on the part of MLT providers as the stakes (and risk) are often high. Compliance organizations have studied mobile closely and little by little, have come to embrace the value proposition of MLT.

Details matter, it’s worth waiting to get it right.
If you don’t love something, you’re not going to go the extra mile, work the extra weekend, challenge the status quo as much.
If you keep your eye on the profit, you’re going to skimp on the product. But if you focus on making really great products, then the profits will follow.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.
I’m convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.
I want to put a ding in the universe.
When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.
Things don’t have to change the world to be important.
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
I’m as proud of many of the things we haven’t done as the things we have done. Innovation is saying no to a thousand things.
I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.
Getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.
Design is not what it looks and feels like. Design is how it works.
Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations
Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.
Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.
Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.
If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.
We use google on nearly a daily basis, if not an hourly basis! we use it to search for movies,articles,recipes,music,books and for nearly anything that comes to our mind,but are we using Google correctly? It turns out that we have been Google-ing wrong this whole time. There are certain ways to Google, these will help you obtain the best results right away.

A mobile learning environment will always represent a blending of sorts–physical movement, personal communication, and digital interaction.
Always-on learning is self-actuated, spontaneous, and recursive. There is a persistent need for information access, cognitive reflection, and interdependent function through mobile devices. It is also embedded in communities capable of intimate and natural interaction with students.
All of the previous 11 principles yield an authenticity to learning that is impossible to reproduce in a classroom. They also ultimately converge to enable experiences that are truly personalized.
With asynchronous access to content, peers, and experts comes the potential for self-actuation. Here, learners plan topic, sequence, audience, and application via facilitation of teachers who now act as experts of resource and assessment.
With mobility comes diversity. As learning environments change constantly, that fluidity becomes a norm that provides a stream of new ideas, unexpected challenges, and constant opportunities for revision and application of thinking. Audiences are diverse, as are the environments data is being gleaned from and delivered to.
Apps and mobile devices can not only support curation, but can do so better than even the most caffeine-laced teacher might hope to. By design, these technologies adapt to learners, store files, publish thinking, and connect learners, making curation a matter of process rather than ability.
Play is one of the primary characteristics of authentic, progressive learning, both a cause and effect of an engaged mind. In a mobile learning environment learners are encountering a dynamic and often unplanned set of data, domains, and collaborators, changing the tone of learning from academic and compliant to personal and playful.
Among the most powerful principles of mobile learning is asynchronous access. This unbolts an educational environment from a school floor and allows it to move anywhere, anytime in pursuit of truly entrepreneurial learning. It also enables a learning experience that is increasingly personalized: just in time, just enough, just for me.

How to print from you
Right away !
Have you ever been browsing Safari on your iPad or iPhone and found something you would like to have a print copy of? Or maybe you're doing work on your iDevice using Pages or Numbers and need to print the document. Using a wireless network, you can print from your iDevice.
There are three ways to do this:
AirPrint, developed by Apple, is available on iPads or iPhones 3GS or later. In order to use AirPrint, you must have an AirPrint-enabled printer (available from most of the major printer manufacturers.) Your printer must be connected to WiFi. You can print things from Safari, Notes, Mail, or Photos. Tap on the share up arrow icon in the top left corner of your iPad or bottom screen of your iPhone and select Print. Tap Select Printer and you should see your printer's name. Tap Select again. Choose the number of copies you want and then tap Print.
2. Printer Manufacturer Apps
Some printer manufacturers offer their own apps to connect to your iPad or iPhone. Epson iPrint, HP ePrint and Xerox Print Portal are a few that work similarly to AirPrint.
3. Third-Party Apps
Besides printer manufacturer apps, there are many third-party apps that let you connect a non-AirPrint printer to your iPad or iPhone. After you download the app you will have to install their software on your computer to connect the printer to your iPad or iPhone and print wirelessly. Some examples of apps you can download are Printer Pro ($2.99), Print n Share ($7.99), and PrintCentral ($6.99).
