Learning and Skills Network (NJ3)
The Mobile Learning Network (MoLeNET) is a unique collaborative approach to encouraging, supporting, expanding and promoting mobile learning, primarily in English post-14 education and training, via supported shared cost mobile learning projects. Collaboration at national level involves participating institutions and the Learning and Skills Council (now the Skills Funding Agency, http://www.skillsfundingagency.com) sharing the cost of projects introducing or expanding mobile learning and the LSN (http://www.lsnlearning.org.uk) providing a support and evaluation programme. The LSC and institutions have invested over 16 million British pounds in MoLeNET during the period 2007-2010. The MoLeNET support and evaluation programme includes technical and pedagogic advice and support, materials development, continuing professional development, mentoring, facilitation of peer-to-peer support, networking and resource sharing, research and evaluation. MoLeNET's 2009 mobile learning conference took place on 1st December at The Grange St. Pauls hotel in central London. The aims of the conference were: (1) to share the good practice, lessons learned and research findings arising from MoLeNET phase 2; (2) to demonstrate technologies, systems, learning materials and techniques; (3) to provide an opportunity for networking and knowledge sharing; and (4) to encourage debate and inform strategic thinking about the future of technology enhanced teaching and learning. Presentations delivered at the conference included: (1) Covering the angles--a multi-pronged approach to staff development (Julia Duggleby and Dave Pickersgill); (2) Mobile Phone Appropriation and Pedagogical Mediation by Students in Educational Contexts (Adelina Moura and Ana Amelia Carvalho); (3) Location and Context Sensitive Mobile Learning: The Evaluation of an Urban Education Tour (Claire Bradley, Carl Smith, John Cook and Simon Pratt-Adams); (4) Teachers' Motivation Factors in the Success of Mobile Learning: What We Learnt (Davide Taibi, Manuel Gentile, Luciano Seta, Giovanni Fulantelli, Marco Arrigo and Onofrio Di Giuseppe); and (5) "Mylearningtube": The Use of User Generated Video Content in an FE College (Peter Kilcoyne).
