Ignatia Webs

Learning within context was a difficult task in the past (travel, content design.). But with the ever growing (and simplifying) augmented mobile learning, it becomes a very feasible way of getting learners up to speed with the latest knowledge. Situated learning was first proposed by Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger as a model of learning in a Community of practice. And I am in to that concept!

2010: the year we make contact?

uLearning Blog

Welcome to 2010. feel a bit foolish writing my first 2010 blog entry when the announcement that might define mobile and ubiquitous computing this year is still a week away, but there have been enough early signs from a range of companies to make some assumptions, and speculate on what they will mean for learning that attempts to take advantage them. So, is learning and the institutions who’s job it is to propagate it ready to embrace a touch-computing future? I’d like to think so. That’s the hardware story.

The Future of Reality – Controlling Objects With Your Mind

The Mobile Learner

Take the red pill if you dare and watch what could be the future of learning. This video from TED demonstrates new technology being developed where a human can interact with devices to control objects simply by thinking about them.  On the one hand, a very exciting development, especially when it comes to supporting children with physical disabilities.  On the other, I can’t help to feel how much this resembles the dystopian societies described in science fiction – in this case, the movie The Matrix.

The mobile future

Last week I went to another seminar, or rather a presentation about the future of the mobile web in 2010. A few interesting products (hardware and software), some of which I have never heard of, were shown. According to Schärer and Wieser, some of the mega trends of 2010 are the more increased use of social networks on mobile phones, location-based services and augmented reality. Altough mobile learning per se was not mentioned, one or two of those products certainly will have an impact on the mobile learning scene of this year. In Europe that is.
