Reflections on the 2008 RCAC Symposium

The Mobile Learner

I was fortunate enough to attend another education technology conference in 2008 and this conference was the Western RCAC symposium held in London, Ontario on December 11th.  When we buy a new TV, we are shopping for the creative experiences presented by visual artists - kids are doing the same thing when they are shopping for video games. Video games are changing the nature of learning but this industry will also drive an increased need in story writers, artists, musicians, etc - we should not shortchange the arts in our funding and in our instructional focus.

Vringo.Create Video Project Ringtones for Cells

Cell Phones in Learning

resource called Vringo , students can create short video ringtones. The way it works is when you call someone else, your video ringtone will be displayed as your friends phone is ringing. I was thinking this might be a fun way to engage in a content-based project. For example, students in a foreign language class could create video ringtones asking a question in the foreign language about a cultural item/event displayed in a video. Each students could be in charge of calling friends in the class to share their video ringtones. Using a free web2.0

I created this video for my presentation at the MACUL conference tomorrow in Grand Rapids, MI. Update: Here is the Link to video on TeacherTube.Enjoy would love some feedback on it. The goal is to give a perspective of educational history and technology, where common technology tools (such as a chalkboard or pen or even Internet) were once banned and labeled "harmful" as we are doing with cell phones. Enjoy!

Create Cell Phone "I search" video papers with Twiddeo

Cell Phones in Learning

I was listening to Ed Talk (01_14) recently and they (John, Jennifer, Dave, and Jeff) spoke about a new resource called Twiddeo , which is just Twitter with video. You can post videos from your computer, but you can also post immediately from your cell phone to your personal account. This allows for many "out-of-school" learning assignments with cell phones and video. The first idea that came to my head was conducting an "I search" video paper. Of course students would need to get verbal permissions to post any person in their video. And the result.so And fun!

Social Studies! Next Assignment.send a video message to presidential candidates cell phones!

Cell Phones in Learning

After reading about this opportunity on PicturePhoning , I thought this would be a great assignment for any social studies class studying current events, following the 2008 election campaigns. Students could research an issue of their own interest (such as stem cell research, the best way to get out of the current "recession", healthcare, global warming.etc), and send a video message through Mogreet the Vote to any of the presidential candidates personal cell phones. It might be a fun and engaging homework assignment

Thoughts on Interactive Gaming

The Mobile Learner

Back in October of 2008, my wife and I bought a Nintendo Wii.  When, in the past, have you ever seen kids embracing music of their parents generation?  In a strange sense, video games appear to be changing the way kids are relating to content 0f the past.  However, some recent experiences and discussions merit some consideration here.

Flickr Mobile Video.An Easy Option for Teachers

When I first learned that Flickr was adding video as a posting option, I was a bit skeptical. Flickr works so well for posting images, that I was unsure how video would fit in to the context of the site. However now that I have had a few weeks to play with Flickr video, I can honestly say I am an even bigger fan of this site. Flickr

iPhone users, this is for you!

Cell Phones in Learning

Everything from Writepad to Facebook to video games are included on this site. I am not an iPhone user. The reason is because I like to use cell phones that the majority of students and teachers have, which are more basic cell phones. As that changes, I will purchase an iPhone or something similar, but until then I will be in the trenches with the students.
