Mobile Intensive Pedagogies

The University of Technology Sydney are undertaking a research project entitled ‘Optimising teaching and learning with mobile intensive pedagogies’. The project is a federally funded ARC Discovery project and primarily looks at teaching and learning with mobile devices in mathematics.

Gymea has broadened the flexible use of technologies throughout the school through the connect2learn project that supports students using their contemporary digital devices at school within class and private organisation and study. Unlike other approaches, the connect2learn approach undertaken at Gymea recognises that the use of contemporary devices needs to remain an individual decision on style of device and extent of usage. Student self regulation with study and use of device supported by school systems, teams and learning. The research study undertaken by UTS will provide the school with an independent review on what this looks like in terms of individualising education, enhancing collaborations and the authentic impact on learning. The perspective will be valuable to help steer school directions in this area.

Students involved will be given information and parental consent forms to take home. We are confident that our kids will provide some good feedback to information the research project and the school.

The University have identified in their project description the following:

“School students use mobile technologies everyday but little is known about how to ensure the effective use of these technologies in quality mathematics and science learning and teaching. The team from the University of Technology Sydney are considering this issue through a national ARC Discovery Grant investigating technological and pedagogical enablers and inhibitors associated with mobile learning that optimise or reduce educational outcomes for students.”

Following the data collection and interviews, the University have offered further involvement through working with teachers to facilitate action learning within the school and sharing of frameworks and learning with mobile technologies from previous phases of their project.

We will share what we are can with our school community following the completion of the project.
