Mobile Devices for Information Literacy Instruction – Is it a Good Idea?

  1. 1. Mobile Devices for Information Literacy Instruction – Is it a Good Idea? Debbie Herman & Susan Slaga Central Connecticut State University
  2. 2. How We Got Started… from screencast to podcast
  3. 3. Project PHASE I – World Lit. 2 Spring 2008 • Library instruction delivered as podcasts over the course of 8 weeks • 1-2 “episodes” per week • Students subscribed to Podcast feed through iTunes • Episode delivery via Podcast feed • Videos optimized for mobility (640 x 480 max. resolution) • Short written assignments given to reinforce/verify students’ understanding of material presented • Librarians met with students mid-semester to answer questions and assess students’ satisfaction with the delivery medium
  4. 4. What do our students really think? ECAR (Educause Center for Applied Research) – 2009 Study Undergraduate Students and Information Technology Summary Findings: •Laptops owned by 87.8% of student respondents . •Internet-capable handheld devices are owned by 51.2% of respondents, with 29% of these owners using the Internet from their devices daily. •73.1% of students report using the College/University Library website. •86.6% use Social Networking sites weekly or more often. •Decreased use of IM (72.5% - 2006, 71.5% 2007, 57.5% in 2008, 55.7% in 2009)
  5. 5. How CCSU Students Responded N=280 • 88.2% report owning a laptop (vs. 89.4% of all 4-yr students surveyed) • 62.1% of respondents own a desktop computer (vs. 43.3% of total) • 93.5% report using the library site at least once per semester (vs. 73.1% of total). • 82.5% use Social Networking sites weekly or more often (86.6%). • 20.8% use podcasts once per semester or more (vs. 28.3% of total) • 77% Think they are either “very skilled” or an “expert” at using the Internet to effectively and efficiently search for information (vs. 58% of total) • 78.2% expect their use of the internet from a handheld device to increase or greatly increase in the next 3 years (vs. 73.5% of total)
  6. 6. Quiz… What percentage WOULD be likely to use library services if available on a handheld device? • CCSU – 19.6% • ALL – 14.2% REALITY CHECK!

  19. 19. 1. How many of you … – Loaded the podcasts onto your own ipod? – Accessed the podcasts through iTunes on your computer? – Accessed the podcasts through the link on the webpage? – Accessed the podcasts on the ipod at the library? 2. How did you like the podcasts/tutorials? What did you like about them? 3. What did you dislike about them? Do you have any suggestions of how they could have been done differently or better? 4. What kinds of technical problems did you have if any? Focus Group Questions
  20. 20. 5. Which podcasts did you like best – video, databases tutorials, audio or a combination? 6. Would you have preferred that they be more interactive (i.e. trying some of your own searches)? 7. Would you prefer to get this kind of instruction online or in person? Why? 8. After viewing and listening to these podcasts, how many of you feel more comfortable using the library’s resources? 9. After the podcasts do you feel more comfortable visiting the library and/or asking for help using library resources? Focus Group Questions continued
  21. 21. • Contact someone you already know who is open to using technology and/or trying something new. • Many faculty are open to researching something new because they do it too. • Faculty will hopefully be interested if it’s something that will engage and interest their students more. Collaborating with Faculty
  22. 22. Is it a good idea? • Since so few loaded onto iPod, would not optimize for mobile • Given lack of familiarity with RSS, would not force students to subscribe to the podcast • Make episodes considerably shorter • More live action • More “point of need” placement Yes, but…
