"M-LEARNING IN SCIENCE" - INTRODUCTION OF MOBILE LEARNING IN PHYSICS
The “m-learning in Science” Project was put forward as a model for forthcoming mobile learning or “m-learning” using devices endowed with high computing power, fast telecommunications, and rich representation of reality. We used portable computers, geospatial positioning devices (GPS), digital cameras and other equipment, in activities for learning Physics in high-mobility conditions of our students. The students used the devices to make measurements during their travel on campus and in the city, capture measured data, process and analyze the data, and communicate these results. The devices were used as models of the expected capabilities of future lightweight, pocket or handheld devices. The project also rests on an LCMS which provides educational contents and means for communication and interaction among project participants, so that the students can work collaboratively. This work allowed students and instructors to acquire novel learning in a context lying outside conventional laboratory settings and classrooms, which were vivid, easy to assimilate, and effective. It also produced a set of learning objects which can be easily reutilized in a variety of contexts.
