Beyond the Ownership of Handhelds: One-to-One Active Learning with Ubiquitous Learning Minds
Chen-Chung Liu
Graduate Institute of Network Learning Technology

Technology-enhanced learning researchers increasingly notice the impact of change of learning tools. The notion "one-to-one" or OLPC (one laptop per child) was therefore highlighted in terms of the tools (i.e. pencils or computing devices) and materials (textbooks or online information) students own for learning. One-to-one (1:1) learning refers to the scenario where students bring handheld devices fitted with wireless communication capabilities and apply these devices for various learning activities. However, as computational power is becoming everywhere, the ownership of devices and the mobility of the personally-owned devices are not the only critical issues to transcend learning into active, collaborative, creative and integrated social explorative experiences.

In this talk, I'll present the ecological changes in our classrooms that may inform the design of our educational environment and pedagogies. Pedagogical and environmental issues that concerning the cultivation of ubiquitous learning mind such as personal autonomy, active engagement, personal relevance, collaboration, and epistemic pluralism will be discussed.

Sponsored by the Center for Lifelong Learning & Design.
