|Students use of mobile phones for studying and note making
This project has explored how students are using their mobile phones for studying and note making.
The first stage was a questionnaire which looked at the mobile phones that students have, their attitudes to using them for teaching and learning, and what they were using them for. This was followed up by case studies of individual use. Students were loaned Flip video cameras to record video diaries of their mobile phone use, and were interviewed afterwards, resulting in several case studies of use.
It was funded by London Met's SWAP fund (Supporting Writing for Assessment Purposes), supported by the WriteNow and Learnhigher CETLs and the Centre for Academic Professional Development, with a grant of £2,000. The project was being carried out by Claire Bradley (LTRI) and Dr Debbie Holley (London Metropolitan Business School).
All the results, from the questionnaire, the case studies and tips and suggestions for using mobile phones for teaching and learning, are available on the project website: http://www.londonmet.ac.uk/learningonthemove/index.html
