ASCILITE Mobile Learning Special Interest Group (MLSIG) - Core Group Member

The aim of the ASCILITE Mobile Learning SIG (ML-SIG) is to explore the intersection of mobile learning, new pedagogies, the Scholarship of Technology Enhanced Learning (SOTEL), Design-Based Research (DBR), and authentic learning.

Mobile device ownership is ubiquitous, leading many HE institutions to explore a BYOD approach to mobile learning. However, most Mlearning projects are device centric and focus upon repurposing content for delivery to small screens and substitution of pre-existing pedagogical strategies. The potential of mobile learning is to enable new collaborative connected pedagogies and professional portfolios.

The ML-SIG explicitly explore the boundaries of current knowledge and approaches to mobile learning, and develop a global collaborative network of mobile learning researchers interested in exploring and implementing the frontiers of mobile learning. It will also explore the unique affordances of mobile devices for student-generated content and student-generated contexts via such technologies as collaborative media production and sharing, VR, AR, geolocative and contextual sensors, drones and wearable technologies.
