• Mobile That Works

  • 제 역할 하는 모바일

  • In order for mobile technologies to be effective in the classroom, teachers and administrators will need to let go of the reins and let students take the lead, according to University of Michigan professor and researcher Elliot Soloway.
  • 미시간 대학 교수 엘리엇 솔로웨이는 교실에서 모바일 기기를 효율적으로 사용하기 위해 교사와 관리자는 고삐를 놓고 학생들에게 주도권을 주어야 한다고 한다.
  • "Kids are the experts on the technology," Soloway says. "Teachers are the experts not on the content but on the pedagogy and classroom management.The two have to live together. They have to learn together."
  • 솔로웨이는 '어린이들은 테크놀로지의 전문가'라며 '교사는 교육 내용의 전문가가 아니라 교육 이론과 교실 관리의 전문가'라고 얘기했다. 이 두 가지는 함께 배우고 함께 나아가야 한다.
  • Soloway, a professor at the University of Michigan’s School of Education, College of Engineering, and School of Information, is one of the founders of Ann Arbor, MI-based GoKnow, a provider of educational software. He and GoKnow co-founder Cathie Norris, a Regents professor in the College of Education at the University of North Texas, have been studying education technology trends for more than two decades. The pair spoke recently with T.H.E. Journal about how mobile technologies can support true 21st century learning.
  • 미시간대 교육대학, 엔지니어링대 및 정보학과 교수인 솔로웨이는 교육용 소프트웨어 제공 업체인 미시간 앤아버에 위치한 GoKnow의 창업자중 한명이다. 그와 GoKnow 공동 창업자이자 North Texas 대학의 교육 대학 교수인 캐씨 노리스는 20년 이상 교육 기술 동향에 대해 연구해 왔다. 두분은 최근 어떻게 모바일 기술이 진정으로 21세기 학습에 도움이 될 수 있는지에 대해 T.H.E Journal에서 발표하였다.
  • Mobile Learning: Helpful or Hype?
  • 모바일 학습, 유용한가 아니면 상술에 불과한가?
  • Mobile learning is not hype, Soloway and Norris assert emphatically, citing experience from their research in Singapore for the WeLearn Project. WeLearn gave Nokia Lumia 710 phones, running Windows, to a class of third graders at Nan Chiau primary school in Sengkang New Town, located in the northeastern region of the country. The goal of the project is to foster 21st century skills in these students by moving them from the traditional teacher-centric learning model to a student-centric approach that encourages collaboration and project-based learning.
  • 그들의 싱가포르에서의 WeLearn 프로젝트 연구로부터의 경험을 바탕으로 모바일 학습은 결코 과장된 것이 아니라고 솔로웨이와 노리스는 강하게 주장한다. WeLearn은 윈도우즈 기반의 노키아 루미아 710 폰을 북동지역에 위치한 성캉 신도시의 난차우 초등학교 3학년 학급네 나누어 주었다. 프로젝트의 목표는 전통적인 교사 중심의 학습 모델에서 협동과 과제 기반의 학습을 촉진하고자 학생 중심의 접근법을 적용함으로써 이러한 학생들이 21세기 역량을 기르기 위함이었다.
  • Based on "Master Plan 3," a directive from the Ministry of Education, it’s a mission that the country takes very seriously. Singapore has the highest test scores in the world, according to Soloway. "They won’t muck with their test scores, with what they’re doing, unless they see that something can make them better." He adds, "They realize that the drill and practice [approach] is not going to develop 21st century skills of self-directed, collaborative learning."
  • The students adapted easily to the new devices, which came pre-loaded with a mobile learning platform and a number of educational applications developed by the University of Michigan. When the researchers reviewed their data at the end of the first year, they found a boost in test scores in the pilot class. "Test scores actually went up and the children learned 21st century skills," says Soloway.
  • In the second year of the project, test scores remained level with the previous year, which Soloway says "is just fine," pointing out that the students are learning key skills like "problem-solving, debugging, conversation, critical thinking, self-directed learning, collaborative learning, team work. "[These] are the soft skills people have decided kids need," he says, adding that students are also gaining hard skills like critical analysis. "We’re seeing it. It’s working."
  • But in order to see results like those in Singapore, a cultural change must take place in the classroom, points out Norris. It’s not enough just to introduce technology into the learning environment and expect results, she says; you must change everything, from devices to curriculum to pedagogy.
  • "You must give them curricula with the technology activities baked in," she asserts, "so students don't have to keep going back and forth from their paper and pencil textbooks to their technology activities."

Thurnau Professor at the University of Michigan, are researchers and frequent speakers at education technology conferences. The pair will lead three sessions at FETC 2013 , which starts Jan.28, 2013 in Orlando, FL.
  • Don't Settle for Using Just a Few Apps On Your Shiny New iPad!
  • 단지 몇가지 앱들만 이용하는 채로 당신의 새 iPad를 내버려 두지 마라.
  • To move the needle of student achievement upwards, and move beyond just increased student engagement, mobile devices need to be used as an essential tool for learning, not just as a supplemental tool. But, where does the curriculum, instructional, and assessment strategies come from to exploit 15-20 apps, 50-75 percent school day use, and after school use? Textbook publishers are absent. We will describe how schools form teams to support their teachers in moving to 1-to-1, essential, mobile learning.
