Mobile Webapps
for the Liberal Arts which Technologies? the problem who can help? Which Technology?

Which Technologists?

Which Technologies? a solution Educators at institutions that stress face-to-face interaction in small classes need FEWER etexts and pre-packaged content applications and MORE tools to create interactive content that responds to students' immediate needs. encouraging deep learning
simplex classrooms
e-readers and e-textbooks why publishers and educational software companies miss their target in the liberal arts making a literary e-reader
tablet PCs in physics class
chemistry text-as-app how our coding experiences demonstrate the need for small custom-built webapps Multiplex Classroom making a literary e-reader survey
& commentary = HP + AC $120k Chemistry Text-as-App callearn.org each learning goal is a separate app. narration & animation games & social learning Medieval Classroom My Classroom? = ? Idea! Our survey of those in the conference room who had some experience with e-readers in the classroom centered on issues (both pro and con) of cost and accessibility.

Few mentioned pedagogy as an issue. how we all have shaped existing technology in education Honest Answers Process, not Product Realtime Collaboration What more is needed? Interactive Models Stability! goo.gl/p3h6k Accessibility VPython A small liberal arts college
in Southern Michigan Mobile applications will be increasingly popular. Publishers like Inkling create textbooks
with multimedia content... but they frequently ignore the pedogical possibilities of animations like this one. Traditional classrooms stress one-way communication. E-books are lacking in the humanities and don't have the tools to allow textual study. This imperfect attempt illustrates both what I see as the problems with current models of e-readers, at least in the humanities, and also the kind of interactions I would like to be able to promote. Apps have been so widely promoted in the mobile environement. They are
slick, visually coherent.
able to run independent offline.
no harder to write than web-apps, with new tools such as PhoneGap.
Web-apps, on the other hand, are
easy to write
easy to upgrade.
easy to modify with tools for sharing among users.
friendly to multiple platforms/devices.
configurable so they feel like apps. App vs. Web-app Jquery and Jquery mobile allow for the creation of a web page that feels and works like a native application. writing for the mobile browser building an interactive footnote A literary web-app needs to privilege the text and keep multi-media supplements out of the way. building an interactive footnote better pedagogy when a reader clicks on a word or phrase
opportunities for sharing specific information. building an interactive footnote Students need to see themselves as knowledge-makers, not as passive readers.
Features like html 5's "canvas" function appear promising as a way letting the student interact with the poem. Lisa Lewis Speaks Aaron Miller Speaks Ian MacInnes Speaks Ian MacInnes Speaks Aaron Miller Speaks Lisa Lewis Speaks by Lisa Lewis, professor of Chemistry
