Micro learning: German Wikipedia offers book service

mLearning Blog

Wikipedia Germany is now offering a great micro learning service. With the click on “Add page to book&# (German: “Seite hinzufügen&# ) anyone can create a collection of Wikipedia entries which they then can convert to a book. Of course, this is necessary pure micro learning, since some Wikipedia entries can be quite long. Still I think the idea is just fantastic and empowers learners to really focus on their interests. The personalized Wikipedia Book costs just a few cents per page of text and one can also put a personalized title and subtitle on it.

M-Learning: Google vs Apple as Web Apps square off against Native Apps

iPhone applications often link out to external services and resources and Google’s Android applications are native on the Android open source operating system (Google also has an Android market place, much like the Apple App Store). Apple is very strong in the native app market, where it’s App Store is a marketplace for all sorts of applications.

Mobile Learning Tools

mLearnopedia on Blogspot

At presentations and workshops, I am often asked to recommend tools for authoring mobile learning. I do not recommend any tools, but do encourage them to check with their current authoring tool vendor to see what their plans are for mobile, as many vendors are moving in this direction. Recently I have gathered information on the current tools and have compiled the following list.

Is Twitter Being Used As A Training Tool? | New Learning Playbook

mLearning World

Twitter , a social networking platform used for microblogging, is a free service that lets you send the briefest of messages (with a maximum of 140 characters) to everyone in your network. It marries the mass appeal of blogging with the speed and ease of text messaging. There has been a growing interest in how to use these new forms of social media for learning & development. learing+2.0

Help for busy Educators: Posterous

uLearning Blog

So again fellow educators in need of less to do: Posterous lets you auto-update multiple services using just email. The wonderful, ever faster pace of technological change does have its downsides, especially for already busy educators. Number 1 on my list of these over the last year has been Evernote.  It also allows me to share what I’ve stored in it online with others. Am I crazy?

Addressing Some More Critiques of Mobile Learning

The Mobile Learner

The ultimate question is why one is doing what one is doing?  In my case, I often use my mobile device to communicate the ideas that I am learning to others in my online PLN through services such as Twitter but the true underlying cause of such distraction is lack of engagement.  Fact: Mobile Devices Are not the Only Things that Distract Students. This is not a new phenomena.

Cell Phones in Education Part 2: Assistive Technology

The Mobile Learner

This allows schools to provide a wireless signal (many schools already have this for use with laptops) thus allowing students to access reference material, communicate on services such as Twitter or to publish to a global audience on a blog or wiki right from a cell phone. One of them is that assistive technology is specialized technology.

The Mobile Learner

services to document learning both within and outside of the classroom. For those new to the concept of Augmented Reality, take a look at my July 25th, 2009 post on Augmented Reality. While I have experimented with a number of apps that incorporate Augmented Reality, one that I find really interesting right now is a service called Wikitude. The service shows where the nearby landmarks are and provides links to both articles and user generated content about that landmark or particular point of interest.

Ignatia Webs

Well, they have a limited non-social media driven space for the book here and their synopsis goes like this: "Blogs, networking sites, and other examples of the social web provide businesses with a largely untapped marketing channel for products and services. Social Media is a much hyped term the last years. But what if you did not launch yourself in it? Once read, I'll get back to you.

Current Events: Anytime, Anywhere Via Cell (No Mobile Internet Required)

Cell Phones in Learning

Udefn SMS Text Message Udefn is a text messaging service where you can sign up for different bots. There are some great FREE resources online that couple with cell phones to allow people to keep up with current events and happenings. While the lucky ones who have purchased mobile Internet can use their mobile browsers to connect with web-based resources, many cannot afford that luxury.

Location is the next big thing, how will m-learning take advantage?

mLearning is Good

I keep reading and hearing more and more about how location and location based services will be the the next big wave in mobility. We could also use location services to alert a coach to a learner’s location, so the coach could actively engage the learner as they enter a relevant physical space. Many devices already come equipped with GPS antennas and others are able to approximate the user’s current location through triangulation (measuring distance by calculating signal strength from multiple cell towers or WiFi hot spots).

Does m-Learning’s Future hold this Kind of Marketplace?

mLearning is Good

He posted about a new service called eduFire where educators can focus on teaching, and students can sign up for inexpensive courses on a wide variety of topics. I was reading Chris Dawson’s post on zdnet and it got me thinking. The topics at eduFire are only limited by the subjects that people are willing to teach about. Basically, if you want to teach a topic, you teach that topic and you decide how much to charge for that course. Even though you may be relaxing with friends, you may want to learn how to cook a turkey or the intracacies of hybrid car.

Mobile Landscape Really About to Change

mLearning is Good

Palm, I want to see them succeed, but they need to do a bunch of things to help their chances, like get their devices on major networks, build a bigger developer base for application and services development and continue to come out with new and different devices. There’s been a big stir of comments, reviews, predictions etc. surroungding the release of the newest Android device in the US. Anyway, the recent release of a Android 2.0 Android is very capable, and the development community for Android is increasing daily. As a developer, this second issue is really pretty important.

What If?

The Mobile Learner

Back in April, 2009,  The Ontario Public School Board Association released their technology policy document titled: “ What If? Technology in the 21st Century “   In short, this document outlines what OPSBA believes to be the future direction in academic technology integration in Ontario public schools. In reflecting on this document, I admit that it is exciting to see an important stakeholder in the education system in Ontario finally making a clear statement on the importance of integrating technology in classrooms to help students learn. 

The Role of Libraries in an mLearning World

The Mobile Learner

Libraries have always provided education services such as reading programs.  We still need those programs. I am not suggesting that libraries get rid of their books completely and become glorified Internet cafes.  What I am suggesting, however, is that more investment is needed in digital spaces and more services provided online through webpages and through mobile devices. Libraries must reach out into digital spaces and provide materials digitally in order to maintain their relevance and to provide people with the services they need when and where they need them.

Task.fm: Text and voice reminders for students and teachers EASY! EASY! EASY!

Cell Phones in Learning

There are many different cell phone reminder services available online. Task.fm is a reminder service that uses uses semantic technology to translate human speak into an email, text and/or voice reminder. Many of which I have written about. A few examples include Sendible , Abbyme , Remember the Milk , Google Cal , ReQall , and Alerts. Recently I have been using Task.fm.

This was a chance to show what the combination of current developments like ubiquitous mobile devices, wireless connectivity and cloud computing (via services like Evernote) will mean for learning in the near-future.
