The e-learning bop network met last week and spent the day exploring themes of interest that had emerged via the group wiki: http://elearningbop.wikispaces.com/19th+August
Speed-geeking and an e-learning smack-down were popular sharing strategies that helped to make the most of the groups’ immense expertise.
Systems and strategies to support e-capability were discussed from the school charter level right through to what unit planning might look like. See resources and models on the wiki.
Mobile technologies were another key theme.
*What pedagogy might underpin the use of mobile devices?
*What are some quality educational applications for use on a mobile device?
*What needs to be considered when making purchasing decisions?
This is our list so far:
•What is our vision for e-learning? How does the purchase of mobile technologies fit with this vision?
•Is our infrastructure going to cope with it? Have we had a comprehensive look at the physical infrastructure?
•Will our ‘wireless network’ manage the increased use?
•Where can we find successful school models?
•Who will co-ordinate this project? How will they be supported?
•What do we want the mobile devices to do? An i-pad is not a laptop!
•How will we manage student/teacher access? policies, internet filtering…
What else could be added to this list?
