Invitation to participate in a survey on mobile technologies for teaching and learning
Dear colleagues, I am forwarding the message below on behalf of my colleague, A/Prof Matthew Kearney, from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). Please direct queries to A/Prof Kearney or to Dr. Kevin Burden, with whom A/Prof Kearney is collaborating on the study. Kind regards, Mark Lee --- *** How are you using mobile technologies in your teaching: Survey *** Dr. Kevin Burden, Director of Post Graduate Teaching, Centre for Educational Studies at the Faculty of Education, University of Hull in the UK and Associate Prof Matthew Kearney from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), Australia invite you to participate in a survey in relation to their project which is a collaboration between the University of Hull (UK) and the University of Technology, Sydney (Australia). Informed by their previous work in the area, they have prepared a worldwide survey to help them understand how teachers at primary, secondary and tertiary levels of Education are currently using mobile technologies. They will be sharing the survey results with colleagues. As active researchers in the field of mobile learning, Kevin and Matthew are aware of the growing interest in how educators can use mobile technologies in pedagogically sound and innovative ways. In particular, they see an urgent need to better understand how to design learning experiences that most effectively utilise mobile devices. Their findings will guide the production of resources and materials that will become part of an educator e-toolkit. Teachers will be able to use this e-toolkit to develop learning activities specifically related to the use of mobile devices like the iPad and then evaluate the impact of these activities on student learning. Kevin and Matthew invite you to assist them by completing the survey via http://bit.ly/surveyinvite They estimate the survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete and you may remain anonymous. The survey asks you to consider ONE particular teaching and learning activity in which you or your students have used mobile devices (any type) and to answer a series of questions related to this specific task or activity. Please feel free to forward this survey to school teachers or other academics who have used mobile devices in their teaching. Please also consider advertising this survey through your PLN. If you have any queries regarding the survey or its completion, please email Dr. Kevin Burden (firstname.lastname@example.org) or A/Prof. Matthew Kearney (email@example.com).
