Mobile Learning with Active Navigation
Wednesday, November 16 11:15-11:35 AM Location: Wright
Abstract: The following pilot study will present an investigation of the research related to active navigation support (ANS) and satisfaction with the interface in a mobile learning. Adaptive navigation support obtains information about the learner, time or location and adapts the tools interface. The purposes of this pilot study was to consider integration of ANS with EASEL (education through application-supported experiential learning). EASEL is a mobile platform that takes advantage of location and time to support both the student and the instructor in a field experience (such as an internship or classroom assignment). This pilot study investigated the differences between a mobile learning environment that did and did not use ANS as a part of its navigation scheme. Fourteen faculty and students participated within a technology program at a Midwestern urban institution in late summer 2016.
