This aim of this workshop is to provide participants with the capacity to design their own mobile learning activities. We will make use of existing, freely available resources including Frontline:SMS, Google’s ODK and EpiCollect.
This is a participatory design workshop. The focus is on collaborative reflection on common problems and possible solutions. We will work mainly in small groups, and share our findings both at the event and on-line.
This will be followed by an ‘in-the-round’ presentation of EpiCollect, Frontline:SMS and GoogleODK, where you will speak with existing users and have a ‘hands-on’ experience of using the tools
You will work in groups to co-design mobile learning activities using mobile devices. You can use the tools presented earlier (for example, using EpiCollect for a participatory science activity) or not
Based the process of developing your design, each group will present a poster outlining the ways in which their solution addressed the challenges raised in the morning session
The day will end with a discussion of the lessons learnt and the identification of key challenges for the future
