"E-Learning Stuff" turns out to be just what I was looking for: An engaging discussion of the trends, tools, and technology of e-Learning. James Clay tackles each issue in a warm, engaging, down-to-earth style that is helpful and balanced. What I appreciate the most about this program is that, while the e-Learning industry traffics in an irritating array of buzz-words, and flavor-of-the-month technologies, Mr. Clay does his best to cut through the hype and clutter, demystifying issues such as "social media" or "mobile learning." These grounded discussions explore both the merits and limitations of the "stuff" of e-learning in a realistic manner, often with the benefit of other panel experts to offer additional insight and balance. Recommended.

e-Learning Stuff Podcast #072: New devices, new ways of learning

Podcast cover
Read more

New devices, new ways of learning, recording of James' presentation from Learning and Skills Conference 2011.

This is the seventy second e-Learning Stuff Podcast, New devices, new ways of learning.

Shownotes

I was invited to speak on the potential and power of mobile technologies and the impact they have had and will have on learning in the workplace.

The proliferation of powerful mobile devices in the past 24 months, combined with a savvy population of users has led to a change in the way we use information. Many of us now expect to be able to read and interact on the move using smart devices like the iPhone and Android phones, or the iPad. At the same time, e-books and readers allow us to carry thousands of books in one device. Potentially this could be a great moment for extending learning – but what is the role of the L&D function in all this?

Shownotes

  • The Game Based Learning Conference is one of the largest events of its kind dealing with all aspects of games in learning. Building on the success of Handheld Learning and provided more depth by creating stimulating, challenging and provocative dialogue spaces at the intersection between the education, gaming, social media and consumer electronics sectors. There, policy makers, thought leaders, innovators and key practitioners met and exchanged ideas, knowledge and experiences as part of a unique ongoing conversation.
  • Using computer games to support learning - The Mobile Learning Network (MoLeNET) has released a new report exploring the ways in which computer games, digital games and digital learning games can be used to enhance and support teaching and learning.
  • The PlayStation Portable PSP is a portable gaming system that uses the GO! Camto take photographs and video. The PSP GO! doesn't have a camera and can't use the GO! Cam.
  • If you need cases for your PSPs, then Gloucestershire College have been pleased with the cases from Connected.
  • If you do have a PSP then you might want to consider an AV cable to connect it to a TV or a projector to show images and video.
  • If you don't like the PSP then you may want to look at the DSi or the new DSi XL (the one with the bigger screen).
  • Pictochat on the DSi is certainly a useful communication tool, in some ways the there are advantages it is a closed system.
  • We've talked about screencasting before and some time ago I wrote a post about screencasting tools for Mac OS X. At this time I use Screenr a fair bit.
  • The Nintendo Wii is one console that seems to have found a place in many classrooms.
  • A website created by Learning and Teaching Scotland to explore the latest games technology. Find out more about the background to learning with digital games and watch the case studies to see computer games successfully used within the classroom.
  • Neverwinter Nights was used to improve key skills.
  • at-Bristol in Bristol has a virtual volleyball game.
  • The future of gaming includes Sony's Eyepet for the PS3, Microsoft's Project Natal for Xbox and rumours of a Nintendo Wii with 3D.
