Have just run a training session at Uxbridge College for the ESOL team, on how various forms of mobile learning can be used in the area of ESOL. Session included the usual suspects of using mobile phones, using Audacity to record sound files, wireless mouse and keyboard and voting pads. Session went very well although the projector wasn’t showing red, so many of the things sown looked very odd, or not visible at all. I was very impressed by the attitude of the team, which was very positive. Normally when I run training sessions of this nature, there are usually a few people that are apprehensive and sometimes obstructive at training sessions, but none this time, and some of the ideas that I was showing, were the sort of things that normally ‘worries’ such people.
It was a very enjoyable afternoon altogether.
