Mobile Learning Redefined

26 11 2006

Steve Dembo, author of has posted up a super video presentation entitled “Mobile Learning Redefined“. His “redefinition” centres around using the technology already in the pockets of students, rather than the introduction of “new” technologies. He covers a number of approaches already covered in this blog (such as 2D Barcodes, mobile web site tools, and moblogging), but also brings up a few new ideas worth exploring, such as:

  • QuizFaberQuizFaber creates multiple-choice quizzes for the mobile web
  • Flickr – features a mobile version of Flickr.
  • allows you to remotely access your bookmarks, and mona allows you to remotely save bookmarks
  • Remote allows you to call a phone number to leave a message, which is instantly published as a podcast.

Check out the video here (warning: large file, 43MB).

Mobile Learning » Mobile Learning Reexamined

[…] Following on from Steve Dembo’s presentation on redefining mobile learning (previously blogged here, and also blogged by Tony Vincent), some excellent and insightful commentary has been posted, over at the Mark van ‘t Hooft’s Ubiquitous Thoughts blog.  It looks at some of the obstacles any “redefined” model of mobile learning must still overcome (access, compatibility, privacy/security), and also succinctly summarises some of the writings of Mike Sharples, one of the best-known researchers in the mobile learning space. It includes this summary of Mike’s reflections on the MOBIlearn project: […]
