Happy Birthday to the Mobile Learning Blog!

23 04 2007

The Mobile Learning blog has just turned one year old! According to Craig Harper, who compiles the Australian Blog rankings, the Mobile Learning blog is currently ranked at #108 in Australia, attracting some 3000 hits a day.

With our first birthday celebrations, it’s a good time to announce the winners of the Mobile Learning Blog’s First Birthday competition. Entrants had to “get social,” and create a link from a piece of social software to their favourite post in the Mobile Learning Blog.

I received some fantastic entries, and I’ve been going through them over the last couple of weeks. The authors of the following entries will be getting portable MP3 players with audio recording capability.

  • “Good” and “Evil” Sue at the “Mobile Technology in TAFE” blog created a podcast about the competition for their entry, which, as always, is fantastic!!! The result is a podcast called “What we learnt while preparing for a podcast for… the Mobile Learning Gadget Giveaway!” The Two Sues look at how you can put notes on your iPod, (even a website), and also talk about their experiences of taking the Mobile Learning blog into various mobile formats. Thank you ladies, for such a wonderful exploration of the blog… which is brilliant: I even learned quite a few things myself… WOW. And thanks for the Happy Birthday shoutout! πŸ™‚
  • Jym Brittain at the Technology 4 Teachers blog also entered a terrific entry, which also included a link to Jym’s own presentation on m-learning, which he delivered to the Oklahoma Governeor’s International Education Conference.
  • Bruce Schalau also shared some of his directions in exploring mobile learning in his entry, which include his projects one mobile phones in the classroom, for questions and responses, and transcoding his university’s website materials for use on mobile phones.
  • Finally, Frances McLean decided to use a wiki to link to the site, from her “yourpda” wikispace. That’s fantastic, Frances, and I hope you enjoyed trying out wikispaces! Frances: I can’t find your contact details on your website, but if you’d like to email me with your postal address at leonard.low@gmail.com, I will be sending you out your prize this week. πŸ™‚

Congratulations, giveaway winners! I will be contacting you all to arrange delivery of your shiny new MP3 players this week!

Congratulations on your first birthday! I have also just celebrated mine, but I have only recently come across your blog and have really enjoyed reading ‘backwards’. In fact, seeing that you are in Canberra and I am in Sydney, I would love to organise to have you up here for a workshop session some time. πŸ™‚
Cheers, Judy
