Transcript of EDUC1104 - Assignment 2

Mobile technology is increasingly becoming an embedded aspect of everyday living. Not only that, but it has also turned into one of the most promising and futuristic methods for learning information. It also allows for numerous forms of learning, helping people to reach their full potential and even further than what was possible with conventional learning methods.
Mobile Technology for Physiologists:
EDUC1104 Assignment 2 - Nick Flint

Is another form of learning where the learner is rewarded
or reprimanded
for answering questions correctly or incorrectly. This ties nicely into mobile learning and the teaching of physiology with the development of
educational apps
, such as
Anatomy Quiz Lite
, which help students learn about Human anatomy and get
real time feedback
on the quality of their answers. This means students can learn what they have done correctly and what they need to work on instantaneously.
Embodied Learning
Is one of the most important forms of learning with respect to the field of science and physiology.
Embodied learning
involves learning through the mind and body. Models are a great example where the student is able to view a tangible object to help learn about the human body. However, with a mobile technology twist, a
virtual or 3D model
can help students learn how all structures are present throughout the body while also viewing them from a variety of angles and levels, not limited by physicality.
QR codes
can also be used to help further the learning of the students in that context as they can apply the knowledge or diagrams they find to the real world context without overcrowding with irrelevant material or wasting time trying to find the resources.
Social Constructivism:
This brings in the use of others to help facilitate learning where the learning itself is
done in groups
for the
exchange of ideas
. This is one of the most important forms of learning, rated highly in Bloom's Taxonomy with it's focus on higher order functions of creating and evaluating. This is especially important in science learning as there are a multitude of facts to be understood. One way of tying social constructivism with mobile technology is through the use of
media recordings
, which can allow students to learn about the human body, without the use of a cadaver and allow the opportunity to watch that recording again and again, in a group.
Networked learning
is also an important aspect as it allows for group communication over a social network like
Information Transmission:
Information transmission
is where the learner is considered a vessel and the teacher channels information into the learner. It is the conventional form of learning and very useful if the teacher can provide information that the learner needs. As a result, the use of
as a tool for learning is invaluable, when information is sought.
Learning Objectives:
To inform fellow peers of the benefits of embracing numerous forms of mobile technology to assist with learning.

Informing students of the same discipline about the different forms of learning with mobile technology and how they can be useful to different people.

Help apply the use of mobile technology and learning styles to the study of Science and Physiology.
An Example of an E-book
Situated Learning
Situated Learning
is the last form of learning relevant to the study of science. This involves learning in the context that the learning is relevant. This is hard to achieve as Science is often split between learning and application. Thus, with the addition of mobile technology and the introduction of
Augmented Reality Applications
into laboratories it would become an invaluable asset for assisting learning. Using AR to help identify the parts of a cadaver in a real world context can provide information without the aid of a teacher while
wearable computing
to measure heart rate and blood pressure for example is an in context way of understanding the body's response to different environmental conditions and activities. However, it would require the use of a high level smartphone because of the required
, thus it's
is low.
Peer Review:
I was fortunate enough to have Chris Lau, one of my peers, review my presentation and provide these recommendations
Peer Review:
Regan Poett, another avid science student and education classmate, also was kind enough to provide his feedback on how I could improve my prezi presentation.
With the feedback provided by Chris and Regan, I made a number of changes to my presentation. I decided to reference social networks such as Facebook and instant messenger are examples of social constructivism using mobile networked learning where groups can work together in a form of Ubiquitous learning. I also used Regan's feedback to include more diagrams and examples to help with my presentation. These changes can be seen in the previous slides.
