project overview
Project Overview:

Project group members have acquired test devices and have divided the research task among the members.

Members:

  • are concentrating on the use of mobile devices to deliver reading material to students. 
  • are focusing on the use of mobile devices and applications to engage students in the learning process. 
  • are exploring the use of mobile devices as a cost-effective alternative to traditional computers in the schools.
objectives
Objectives:
  • Investigate the effectiveness of using mobile devices to increase student engagement in the learning process and to raise student achievement.
  • Study the cost effectiveness of using mobile devices to facilitate student research and learning (compared to traditional computers).
  • *Explore, share, and facilitate the use of mobile devices and teaching practices that hold promise for increasing student learning (this phase of the project will occur after data from steps 1 and 2 have analyzed).

Objective #1:Investigate the effectiveness of using mobile devices to increase student engagement in the learning process and to raise student achievement.

• Research Supports Use of Mobile Devices to Improve Student Engagement and Raise Student Achievement:

"The whole notion of mobile learning is exploding," said Elliot Soloway, a professor at the University of Michigan School of Engineering. "In schools that use mobile technologies, they’re seeing an increase of up to 30 percent in test scores." (N.J. schools explore using iPads as teaching devicesPublished: Wednesday, September 22, 2010, 9:30 AMTomas Dinges/For the Star-Ledger )http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2010/09/nj_schools_explore_using_ipads.html

Objective #2:Study the cost effectiveness of using mobile devices to facilitate student research and learning (compared to traditional computers).

A. Initial device cost:

    1.) Current "Minimum Wintel Laptop Model" available for    

         purchase by A-H schools is HP Compaq 6450b Notebook  

         PC for $951.00.

    2.) iPad $499.00 + $99.00 (extended warranty) = $598.00

    3.) Savings per unit = $353.00

         Savings per portable lab of 16 devices = $5648.00

         Savings for 10 portable labs = $56,480.00

B. Power Utilization: 

"The A4 chip inside iPad was custom-designed by Apple engineers to be extremely powerful yet extremely power efficient. The performance is unlike anything you’ve ever seen on a touch-based device. Which makes iPad fantastic for everything from productivity apps to games. At the same time, the A4 chip is so power efficient that it helps iPad get up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge. Testing conducted by Apple in March 2010 using preproduction iPad units and software performing each of the following tasks: video playback, audio playback, and Internet browsing using Wi-Fi or 3G. Battery life depends on device settings, usage, and many other factors. Battery tests are conducted using specific iPad units; actual results may vary.)"

C. Maintenance cost:

One year standard service and support included.Two year AppleCare Protection Plan for $99.00

Apple states that iPad is rated to be recharged 999 times as compared to average laptop which has an estimated battery life of 500 charges.

D. Device durability:

Aluminum case versus laptop plastic case.

No removable keyboard keys or parts.Device interior cannot be accessed by user.Battery is not removable by user.

Lighter weight 1.5 lbs (better at surviving drops)

E. Resistance to Obsolescence:

Industry trends indicate increasing utilization of mobile apps.

"Global revenue from mobile applications — including paid downloads and mobile advertising — could increase to $17.5 billion by 2012, from $4.1 billion last year, according to an independent study commissioned by GetJar."

            classroom sizes.

        b. By contributing to the Andover Mobile Device Initiative,

            findings would be based on a more realistic class size 

            sampling (15 vs. 33).

                    1. Network impact with actual class size.

                    2. Determining needed support with actual class 

                        size.

                    3. Ability to conduct class activities and lessons.
