Transcript of Mobile and social media for language learning and teaching | Bilbao 2011

How do you learn? Think about how you learnt
either some new language or
a new teaching idea What motivated
you to learn? Who or what
helped you learn? How, where,
when did
you learn? Learning with social media I identified a problem that I personally wanted to solve I drew from my personal learning environment in order to locate people and resources that could help me with my problem I published to social media as an opportunity for personal reflection and as a way of sharing my learning experience with others my stimulus the motivation people in the flesh other like-minded people online involvement in online communities embracing the chaos of social media need for some tools posting on my personal blog helped me map out the steps wrote up the activity consolidated the knowledge gained Bilbao | October 2011

What I got out of it What my students got out of it It was a positive learning experience Why did they learn less than me? got them over their initial embarrassment took pride in sharing their results reflected a bit positive contact with a form of social media not their initiative part of my curricula drew on their current personal learning environments didn’t consciously extend their PLEs learning experience remained essentially grounded in the classroom shared the results of their learning they didn’t necessarily reach a deeper understanding about how they learn best What we can get out of Josh's learning experience self initiated, experience based, personally meaningful knew how to draw on his personal
learning environment used friends, mobile devices and
social resources to help him learn connected his learning across episodes and locations shaped for himself a learning strategy that worked Why self-directed learning is important it’s a particularly effective
way of learning our educational institutions
find it hard to keep pace
with change in a digital society it’s individuals rather
than institutions who are
placed to take advantage
of social media and mobile
devices we are the ones who
have to make sense of
what’s happening around us we need to know how
we learn best so
as to become effective
and lifelong learners My story Josh's story Next steps – from teacher initiative to student initiative Thanks! @ann_f TeachingEnglish – Facebook Electric Village Online

Josh Underwood Mobile and social media
for language learning
and teaching
What did
you learn? shared it with other teachers What processes do we need to put in motion? What skills do we need to develop? build up a personal learning environment choose the right people, the right resources for each situation recognise which elements in our personal learning environment serve useful purposes identify people / mentors / clusters of like-minded associates ability to – become a node in other people’s learning networks navigate the knowledge landscape a praxis of experimentation, action and reflection ability to – empathise with other people articulate your experiences know how to reciprocate handle, select and filter
information abundance ability to –

evaluate and authenticate
information sources recognise and understand
the significance of emerging
patterns and trends learn from experience ability to –
identify your best learning strategies find spaces and opportunities
to take stock of where you are
and where you want to go balance the known
with the unknown we = teachers + students The DNA of learning with mobiles and social media What opportunities for learning
do social media offer? What about mobile devices? How can you use mobile devices and
social media to support your own learning? How do you think that using
them will change dynamics
in the classroom? How do we move from teacher initiated learning
to learner initiated learning? How can you use mobiles and
social media with your learners? @joshuau https://docs.google.com/document/d/1KeYn-NUwEpqz1zwygInvJr0YbPJK9fplSGlzZsjBOic/edit?hl=en_GB&pli=1 Stuff mentioned in Ann’s Story Stuff mentioned in Josh’s Story Note application on phone https://market.android.com/search?q=note&so=1&c=apps twitter https://twitter.com/ google mobile http://www.google.com/mobile/ forvo http://www.forvo.com/ wiktionary http://www.wiktionary.org/ bitstrips http://www.bitstripsforschools.com About Mobiles & Language Learning Mobile Learning http://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/tips/mobile-learning
