2nd International Scandinavian Mobile Learning Workshop, Østersund, 25-27.9.2012

2012-09-25 - 2012-09-27

HiST (Trondheim) and CFL (Soderhamn) will be organizing the 2nd International Scandinavian Mobile Learning Workshop in Østersund, Sweden from 25 to 27 September 2012. During the workshop, teachers and instructors will get together to exchange experiences and elaborate on new pedagogical methods that utilize assessment for learning by the use of state of the art online response technologies.

The theme for the workshop will be Assessment for Learning. If you want to learn more about this subject, please reserve the dates today! Last year, 25 teachers met for two days, but in 2012 we have added an extra day. The number of participants will increase and even include some teachers and instructors who are using the online response technologies in Hungary, Slovenia and Romania. 

During the workshop, there will be practical presentations from teachers, instructors and researchers who have been using the Student Response System (SRS) and the Peer Learning Assessment System (PeLe). An essential activity will be the sharing and transferring of practical experiences to teachers and instructors who are considering the implementation of the online response technology and mobile learning solutions in their own class. Here you will find information about the first workshop in 2011

Teachers who are curious, but inexperienced mobile learning users, are particularly encouraged to participate in the workshop, and get involved in the emerging and growing mobile learning community in Scandinavia.

The workshop will contain the following main activities:

  1. Demonstration of the new SRS
  2. Demonstration of PeLe
  3. Two workshops focus on an instructor training approach for new users, and one for experienced users
  4. Experiences from the use of Activity Based Training, SRS and PeLe in several countries
  5. Presentations from teachers in Romania, Slovenia and Hungary (presentations in English) and Sweden, Norway and Serbia

The contact persons for the workshop are John.B.Stav@hist.no and Per.Bergegard@soderhamn.se .

SRS 2.0, PELE 1.5, Eval 1.0 and iLike 1.0 are available for use.
