(Not a philosophical question) While the background music is playing stand up and circulate the room. Make 3 introductions and find out why the other person chose this workshop and what they hope to get out of it Okay, hopefully we've made a pretty good case so far for mobile technology. So how did we implement the scheme? Implementation Choosing the device
Induction and training Choosing the right device Trial Trialled with a full tutor group for a half term
Highlighted that there was little technical set up
Highlighted classroom management challenges
Highlighted how powerful the devices could be
Learned about practicalities like battery life, transferring files, etc. Training Trialled thoroughly amongst a range of other devices including ipods, ipads, phones, mini books, laptops, other tablets
Easily portable but large enough screen to be usable
It works! The Samsungs proved more compatible with our existing systems than any other device
Reasonable price makes the scheme feasible
No 3G so can be directed through our Internet filtering in school
Android combined with Adobe Air allows our web design team to very easily make and distribute bespoke apps
Also easy for students to create their own apps
Simple things like directly taking a photo from our class blog and sharing so much easier than on other devices we trialled
Android proved to be more flexible than the OS of other mobile devices Induction session
