Tomorrow marks the start of the E-Learning Networks Online event, an online conference using synchronous and asynchronous tools to connect educators from around the country. This time, it’s about social networking (Web 2.0 tools) for e-learning.
Mobile learning is very much integrated into discussions, as many social networking tools (such as blogs, flickr, and youtube) allow users to update their pages remotely using just a mobile phone or PDA. Furthermore, podcasts provide another medium that has potential to be adapted to mobile contexts.
Registration is free (http://networksevents.flexiblelearning.net.au/), with sessions relating specifically to mobile learning including:
- Podcasting & Vblogging in Education Stephan Ridgway
- Mobile Learning Technologies Daniel Dacey
- Connected Learning: Contemplating the Mobile Read / Write Web Alexander Hayes
- Mobile Learning and the New Generations Jeff Hunter
…as well as a number of sessions on other social networking and Web 2.0 tools, technologies, and applications.
