Using Cell Phone as an Inclusive Tool. Mobile learning activity as a generative topic

Your Name and Title:

Mr Toni Casserras Gasol

School, Library, or Organization Name: iEARN Pangea
Co-Presenter Name(s): Pau Higón (student)

Country from Which You Will Present: Catralonia (aka Spain)

Language in Which You Will Present: English    

Target Audience (such as primary school teachers, high school administrators, students, etc.): Educators both in formal or informal learning, school administrators, project facilitators.
 

Short Session Description (one line):  Learnings from succesfully using cell phones and Eduloc app  under Teaching for Understanding paradigm with a group of  secondary students risking exclusion in Solsona.

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

With a team of 14 students (14-16) in risk of academic/social exclusion , we used the cell phone app Eduloc to build up an Augmented Reality game to discover the values of an Iberian old settlement (2700 years old)  in Solsona (Catalonia). They investigate  ( visiting sites, talking to archaelogists, reading varius documentation) how was the daily life in that time and the relics discovered by the archeologists in that arcaheological site and then created videos, 3D simulations and game activities that come to smartphones to help visitors to learn how was the settlement three thousand years ago.

As digital tools/resources they used : cell phones on android, some computers, the software iMovie, the website/app Eduloc and the OpenSim Espurnik.

The students are those who follow partially  a special curriculum in the UEC l'Afrau (a separate instituion but working together with high schools)   because they had too many difficulties at the ordinary classes in the high school. The methodology in UEC l'Afrau is mainly PSBL and in this case we followed the paradigm of Teacher for Understanding with Technology formalized by Harvard Graduate School in some books.

The results in terms of learning and youth empowerment are by now (just finished the activities) amazing, and that experience could be transferred to iEARN projects.

We would like to present it on 12th November at 12:00 pm New York Time

iEARN International Conference and Youth Summit 2012 Session Acceptance

Thank you so much for your session proposal for the 2012 iEARN InternationalConference and Youth Summit!  We're please to let you know that your submission has been accepted! Your proposal is now in the "iEARN accepted proposals" list on the website. Here are some important tasks for you.

1.  Because we have sessions being presented from all different time zones, as a speaker you actually schedule your own session time at http:// http://iearn.youcanbook.me. This allows you to see the available slots and to pick something that works within your time zone, work schedule, or other constraints. We're quite proud of how this works, as it is one of the benefits of a virtual conference, but if you should fun into any difficulties finding a time that works for you, email me directly (dmidness@us.iearn.org).

We encourage you to do this quickly, as proposals are being reviewed in the order in which they were submitted, so your priority for selecting a session time depends on you scheduling right away. When you do select you time, be sure that the scheduling system has the correct time zone for you!
To schedule your session, you should open http://www.globaleducationconference.com to your presentation proposal (you can do a search on your name to find it, or click on "My Page" in the top menu and then click on the "discussion" link on the left side to find it). Open the session booking link from above in another tab. You will find it easiest to copy the information from one to the other rather than re-type it.  Once completed, you will receive an email confirmation of your booking.

2. As a presenter, you need to make sure you are a member of the iEARN conference "presenters group" on the network website. Most of our announcements to speakers will be sent to the members of this group, so as not to email all site members. Join the group (or check to make sure you're already a member) at http://www.globaleducationconference.com/group/iearn-2012-conferenc....

3. Presenters are responsible for knowing how to use Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate).  We will have a cadre of volunteers on hand during the conference to help with any issues, but you need to go through the moderator training for Collaborate if you are not a seasoned user. There will be a variety of training resources at the GEC Collaborate website, and we email the speakers group in some weeks alerting you to actual live training sessions.

Again, we are so delighted to have you participating in the 2012 iEARN International Conference and Youth Summit.  Thank you!

Best,
iEARN Conference Planning Committee
