From M-Learning World, in the footsteps of my previous post on “Why M-Learning is Cheap“, a series of posts on cheap and easy m-learning:
- How to create rapid and cheap mobile learning – text messaging provides advice on using SMS as a learning tool, such as message size, interactivity, and tracking; and provides example learning activities that capitalise on the strengths of text messaging.
- 20 Ideas: Getting students to use their mobile phones as learning tools refers to a blog post by Doug Belshaw, who regularly blogs on the use of mobile technology in primary school classrooms. Ideas include learning slideshows for mobile phones and iPods, educational blogging, podcasting and audio, and file sharing using Bluetooth. Best and happiest of all, Doug has caught on to the potential of QR Codes, via Ewan McIntosh’s blog which followed on from my original post on the potential of QR Codes in education – it seems the word is spreading.
- Finally, a blog post on one organisation who actually saved money by choosing an m-learning approach over a more “traditional” one, using iPods instead of binders to organise and disseminate learning materials.
