Reminder: Mobile Learning And SITE 2012

A reminder that the annual Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education (SITE) International Conference begins tomorrow, so I thought I should re-post the search of the online schedule for sessions related to mobile learning.

Again, I searched the program for terms such as m-learning, mobile, mobile learning and ubiquitous. I wasn’t sure if there were any specific people I should have been searching for (as I do with the K-12 Online Learning And SITE 2012), so if you think I have missed any relevant presentations, please advise…

SITE 2011 – A Call To Action For Teacher Education In K-12 Virtual Education

The the first (and I believe beyond my own only) session from the Virtual Schooling SIG on Thursday at the annual Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education (SITE) International Conference was A Call to Action for Teacher Education in K-12 Virtual Education. The session was described as:

A Call to Action for Teacher Education in K-12 Virtual Education
ID: 33281
Type: Roundtable Topic: Virtual Schooling

Room: 16
Thu, Mar. 10 1:30 PM-2:30 PM

Authors:
Kari Wold, University of Virginia, USA
Monty Jones, University of Virginia, USA

Abstract:
The use of virtual education in K-12 settings is increasing at an astonishing rate. However, teacher preparation programs are currently unprepared to train its pre-service teachers to teach effectively using virtual education tools. This short paper will therefore call for teacher education in virtual education tools to successfully meet the needs of teachers and their students. It will do so by first providing a framework that suggests virtual learning experiences can be conceptualized by (a) whether they are an enhancement or a replacement to face-to-face instruction, (b) the kind of learning experience they provide, and (c) whether they are synchronous or asynchronous. This paper will then make recommendations regarding research, policy, and teacher training. The provided framework and these recommendations must be addressed to ensure teachers can effectively teach their future students and can thereby improve the quality of education in the United States.

This roundtable began with a series of introductions – as the presenters were both doctoral students beginning their studies in this area and many of the audience around the table were seasoned researchers – and then we kind of went with the flow of where the table wanted to go.  That first direction was a focus on policy issues and how that affected virtual school teaching.  The example used was the regulations around seat time.

The conversation then moved around to funding issues and a discussion of professional development and teacher training, followed by much more discussion of policy and what hinders or needs to change  The conversation finished with a discussion of where we needed to go next in terms of research and policy.

SITE 2011 – Is Online Education Cost-Effective?

The third poster sessions accepted by the Virtual Schooling SIG that I am blogging about at the annual Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education (SITE) International Conference was Is online education cost-effective?. The session was described as:

Is online education cost-effective?
ID: 33318
Type: Poster/Demo Topic: Virtual Schooling

Room: 1
Wed, Mar. 9 6:30 PM-8:00 PM

Authors:
Fiona Hollands, Center for Cost-Benefit Studies in Education, USA

Abstract:
In the current environment of fiscal tightening, many institutions see virtual and blended models of education as a means to reduce overall costs, while simultaneously increasing access to educational opportunities. However, few such interventions have been examined thoroughly to establish the all-in financial costs and weigh these against the benefits or effectiveness in terms of educational outcomes. This paper will review a number of recently reported cost analyses to examine whether they address all necessary considerations to make a fair comparison against more traditional forms of delivery. Subsequently, the paper will review current examples where K-12 schools or districts have adopted online learning models and examine assumptions made about the cost-effectiveness of these interventions. The ingredients method of cost analysis will be applied to one particular blended learning intervention, the School-of-One, to estimate the costs per student user of this intervention.

Below is a video of the entire poster:

SITE 2011 – Creating A Model For Change With Online AP Courses In A Nonschool Hours Charter School

The second poster sessions accepted by the Virtual Schooling SIG that I am blogging about at the annual Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education (SITE) International Conference was Creating a Model for Change with Online AP Courses in a Nonschool Hours Charter School. The session was described as:

Creating a Model for Change with Online AP Courses in a Nonschool Hours Charter School
ID: 32150
Type: Poster/Demo Topic: Virtual Schooling

Room: 1
Wed, Mar. 9 6:30 PM-8:00 PM

Authors:
Katie Klinger, National University, USA

Abstract:
This paper will present a model of change that focuses on delivering online Advanced Placement (AP) courses at a “nonschool hours” charter school to Gifted and Talented students living in remote, high poverty and crime areas. The model to offer online AP courses reaches out to students who have given up hope for “advanced courses” due to limited incomes, geographic locations, or lack of out-of-hours academic support and technology. The school’s vision is to foster parent choice in the intellectual and social development of their child through customized instruction (including challenging AP courses). The faculty and curriculum developers understand the unique paradigm of online education, the culture of students who live on the Hawaiian Islands, and are well-versed in providing the personal one-on-one attention students need to be successful online.
