    Module  2:  Mobile  Learning  Devices   Research  Findings       Industry  Brief   “Pockets  of  Potential:  Using  Mobile  Technologies  to  Promote  Children's  Learning”   Shuler,  C.  (2009).  Produced  by  the  Joan  Ganz  Cooney  Center,  2009,  which  supports  action   research  and  promotes  new  media  technologies  for  children.     Full  text  pdf  for  download: _potential.pdf  

    • A  comprehensive  report  outlining  the  potential  of  mobile  devices  in  K-­‐12   educational  setting.    

    • Easily  readable  and  informative  summary  of  the  current  information  on  mobile   learning  in  education.  

    • Contents  include:  opportunities,  challenges  and  goals  for  mobile  learning.     • Appendix  includes  examples  of  how  mobile  learning  is  used  and  research  within  the  

    U.S  and  outside  the  U.S.  on  the  use  of  mobile  learning.         2009  Horizon  Report   Educase  Learning  Initiative  (ELI):  (click  on  “view  this  resource   for  a  pdf  download)   Published  by:  New  Media  Consortium  (NMC).  Advisory  board  includes  educators  as  well  as   industry  professionals  (pg.  32)  Qualitative  Research  Project  

    • Each  year,  the  report  identifies  and  describes  six  areas  of  emerging  technology   likely  to  have  a  significant  impact  on  teaching,  learning,  or  creative  expression  in   higher  education  within  three  adoption  horizons:  a  year  or  less,  two  to  three  years,   and  four  to  five  years.    

    • Primary  research  reflects  published  resources  as  well  as  current  research  and   practice  to  identify  emerging  technologies.  

    • Mobiles  (pp.  8  -­‐9),  referring  to  cell  phones  and  “smartphones”  are  one  of  the   technologies  discussed  with  an  overview  of  the  devices,  relevance  for  teaching,   learning  and  research.      

    • Current  resources  are  included  that  cover  the  use  of  mobiles  (p.  10).     “What  can  you  learn  from  a  cell  phone?    Almost  anything?”   Article  –  published  in  the  Journal  of  Online  Education     Prensky,  M.  (2005).  Marc  holds  an  MBA  from  Harvard  and  a  Masters  in  Teaching  from  Yale.

      • Although  published  in  2005.  Prensky  details  the  many  facets  of  cell  phone  

    technology  that  today  is  even  more  prevalent  and  familiar  to  students.  He  details   topics  such  as  graphic  displays,  SMS,  video  capabilities,  GPS  features  and  voice-­‐only   features.    

    • Prensky  relates  these  to  practical  and  effective  uses  in  the  classroom.  Many   references  are  included.

    • A  non-­‐profit  group,  part  of  “Project  Tomorrow  2010”,  collected  research  data  by   means  of  surveys  focusing  on  21st  century  learning.  The  surveys  included   foundation  questions  about  technology  use,  21st  century  skills  and  schools  of  the   future,  as  well  as  emerging  technologies  (online  learning,  mobile  devices  and  digital   content),  math  instruction  and  STEM  career  exploration,  and  the  challenges  faced  by   teachers  and  administrators.    

    • The  survey  was  a  convenience  sample;  schools  and  districts  self-­‐selected  to   participate  and  facilitated  the  process  for  their  students,  teachers,  parents  and   administrators  to  take  the  survey.  

    • Current  data  was  collected  October  to  December  2009.     • Mobile  device  data  is  included.
