Web 2.0 Wednesday: Create Some Mobile Learning

On Monday, I blogged about some potential tools for "on-the-road" learning, which I'm defining as learning that takes place away from your desk.

For this week's Web 2.0 Wednesday task, I'm going to build off that post and ask you to use a Web 2.0 tool to share some "on-the-road" learning. Some potential ideas:

  • Use your cell phone and GCast to record a quickie podcast. This could be lunch-time interview with a co-worker about how she handles particular situations in her work or a recording of your personal reflections on a learning event.
  • Use the camera in your cell phone or your digital camera to take photos of a sequence of tasks for some mulit-step activity. This could be how to cook a particular dish or how to do some technology-related task--the topic is up to you. Upload your photos to  Flickr, along with commentary on what is required for each step.
  • Do the same thing as in the idea above, but use a video camera and upload to YouTube or  Blip.TV.

I'm sure you'll come up with even more creative options than I've thought of here. These are just to get you started.

If you've been wanting to participate in Web 2.0 Wednesday, but don't have a blog of your own, this might be a good time for you to take the plunge using  Posterous. Here's how:

  • Email whatever you want to post to [email protected]. The subject line of your email will be the title of your blog post when it's published and whatever you write in the body of your email will be in the body of your post. If you want to send a photo, video, etc. just attach them to your email and they'll automatically be embedded in your post.
  • After you send your email, you'll get an email from Posterous with a link to your new blog. It really doesn't get much easier than this.

If you post on your blog about this activity, be sure to tag with with "web2.0wednesday." You can also feel free to leave a link here in comments. Looking forward to seeing what we come up with this week. . .

Hello Web 2.0 Wednesday-ers!

I would like to share some "on the road" learning with you! During the last week of classes, students in my writing class took pictures with their mobile phones and then wrote some commentary about their photos. Through this project, they hoped to share more about Japanese culture. Please check out the Flickr album People and Places. They really enjoyed it!

Mary--your project is so cool! The pictures are great and I love that it's a sort of dual learning experience where we can learn about Japanese culture and your students get to learn about the English language. Although I have to say that I'm not sure I'm ready for oden from a vending machine. :-) Thanks so much for sharing!
