Going Mobile

Teaching with hand-held devices


Shortlisted for the 2015 ELTons Innovation in teacher resources category.

Authors: Nicky Hockly, Gavin Dudeney

ISBN: 9781909783065

Series:Delta Teacher Development Series

 

Going Mobile explains, and then demonstrates with practical activities, how to use mobile devices in English Language Teaching in a principled and pedagogically sound way. It is a pioneering book, directed towards teachers – and therefore towards learners – in the age of the digital revolution, and it breaks new ground by offering much-needed support in our 21st-century classrooms.

  • How to take advantage of the hand-held devices now available
  • How to face the many challenges that stand in the way of success
  • How to incorporate the technology across our teaching institutions

Going Mobile contains three distinct parts which focus in turn on theory, practice and development:

  • Part A introduces us to teaching with mobile devices, and the apps we can take advantage of. It covers the important questions we often ask, the issues we frequently face and the challenges we invariably encounter.
  • Part B is full of classroom activities spread over five chapters – from a first analytical, yet entertaining, look at the use of mobile devices, to the staged and sensible exploitation of text, image, audio and, finally, video.
  • Part C takes us further, both in our classes – by way of longer activities and projects – and in our institutions – where we are encouraged to incorporate mobile teaching and mobile learning progressively and systematically.

Going Mobile is available as both paperback and Kindle e-book

Nicky Hockly

Hi! I’m Nicky Hockly, a teacher and teacher trainer based in Barcelona, Spain. I started teaching in 1987, and I’m now the co-director of an online educational and training consultancy called The Consultants-E (www.theconsultants-e.com). My official job title is Director of Pedagogy, and I work in the area of online teacher training and online course design. I’m especially interested in how teachers can start to use ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) in the classroom. Our company won a British Council Innovation Award (ELTON) for our online ‘ICT in the Classroom’ course in 2007, and we were shortlisted for another ELTON in 2009, for our teacher training work in Second Life.

My first book for language teachers was How to Teach English with Technology, co-written with my colleague Gavin Dudeney and published by Pearson Longman in 2007. This book won the 2008 Ben Warren International House Trust prize. Gavin and I then co-wrote English as a Foreign Language for Dummies, published by John Wiley Publishing in 2009. My third book was Teaching Online, in the Delta Teacher Development Series, written with Lindsay Clandfield, published in 2010, and nominated for a British Council ELTON Award. Next was an e-book in 2012 called Webinars: a Cookbook for Educators, published by The Round. The next book, Digital Literacies (Routledge 2013), was cowritten with Gavin Dudeney and Mark Pegrum, and also nominated for an ELTON Award. It won the British Council/Society of Authors ELT Writing Award in 2014. My most recent book is Going Mobile in the Delta Teacher Development Series, cowritten with Gavin Dudeney.

Because I’m interested in technology and education, I maintain a blog called eModeration Station, which has tips and techniques for teachers interested in topics such as online teaching, or mobile learning, among other technology related issues. I also tweet regularly on Twitter, where you can follow me via @theconsultantse. You can also keep track of what myself and The Consultants-E team are up to via our Facebook page, where we regularly add resources and hold discussions on technology-rated issues http://www.facebook.com/TheConsultantsE. And check out our You Tube channel for video recordings of tasks that myself and members of the team have given at conferences: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheConsultantse

Gavin Dudeney

Hello there! I’m Gavin Dudeney, a teacher, teacher trainer, materials writer and educational technologist based in Weymouth, UK. I started teaching in 1989, in Spain, where I lived for twenty-three years before returning ‘home’. I’m the co-director  (with my long-time writing partner Nicky Hockly) of an online educational and training consultancy called The Consultants-E (www.theconsultants-e.com), where my official job title is Director of Technology, working in online teacher training, course design and EdTech consultancy. Our company won a British Council Innovation Award (ELTON) for our online ‘ICT in the Classroom’ course in 2007, and we were shortlisted for another ELTON in 2009, for our teacher training work in Second Life.

My first book about teaching with technology was The Internet & The Language Classroom, published by Cambridge University Press way back in 2000. This book was reprinted in 2007, the same year that I published my first book co-written with Nicky. The book was called How to Teach English with Technology, and it won the 2008 International House Ben Warren Trust Prize. Since then I’ve co-written a book in the popular ‘Dummies’ series, again with Nicky, and last year (2013) Nicky, Mark Pegrum and I published Digital Literacies with Routledge, and this went on to win the Society of Authors British Council award in 2014, as well as being shortlisted for a British Council ELTon Award. It’s a great honour to join all the outstanding authors in the DELTA Teacher Development Series and I hope that Going Mobile will fit into the series well, and enjoy the prestige that the other publications seem to garner worldwide.
