Transcript of Mobile learning
Vice Principal, George Spencer Academy, Nottingham
Presentation available at http://bit.ly/PHMobileLearning
The current technology offerings?
Tablet - which one?
The tablet/laptop/ultrabook mutation?
The 'phablet' big screen mobile phone
The hidden realities of well-publicised iPad rollouts
TABLETS ARE DESIGNED FOR COFFEE TABLES
...NOT CLASSROOM TABLES!
Personalise v lockdown
Updates - software and apps
Personalisation - all the same device?
Logisitics - linking to displays, printing, wireless...
Saving and sharing your work?
Damage and replacement
Q. Where are the improved learning outcomes?
A. They are not there yet - although there are some interesting isolated stories
We have no spare cash to spend on unproven technology
Where we are now...
Our staff are getting confident with the web tools
See http://bit.ly/PHNewTechs and http://bit.ly/PHNewTechs2
Our Student Digital Leaders are helping them
Our staff need 10 no-brainer uses that impact learning
Our staff need to be confident in their own use of devices
Our staff need to be confident with classroom management
Our staff need to separate bad behaviour from device use
Our staff need to be able to defend the usage of devices
How we approach eSafety
An Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) is nice
Ours is "TEACHER DISCRETION"
The students access more scary stuff outside school
...(and by by-passing our school web filters)
It starts with education
We need to prepare students for (and replicate) the workplace
We want to help students understand and manage their own risks
BYOD Case Study: Our current position...
Students can bring in any device they want
They can connect to free, filtered wireless with no password
Teachers are the boss
Teachers can exploit the devices as they see fit
Staff and students are currently exploring uses
We are all currently understanding classroom management
Tablet trial - 8 models across staff and digital leaders
Why is this our choice?
How long will the apps fad last?
2 types of app
Standalone small pieces of software
Software that pulls data from the Internet
Apps are limited by their size and their power
Why limit yourself to one type of device when the world wide web is universal?
Will 'apps' become shortcuts to web tools?
School case study, Kent
1200 iPads issued to students
489 iPads needed replacing within 1 year
This is before the insurance company supplies a newer device!
Insurance premium approx. £15K
Replacing 489 iPads approx. £200K
Will insurance companies carry on doing this?
Everyone's premiums will rise as a result
Why did you choose iPads?
"The head of IT loves Apple"
"We want them to last longer"
"We wanted the best value for money"
"Are there any others?"
iPad or Google
Options for 1:1 access
Parents pay (and insure)?
School offers a leasing scheme?
School pays - actually justifiable!
