Pekka and I are just finishing up our presentation ahead of the Networked Learning Conference 2014 in Edinburgh. I just wanted to share it here along with our actual paper.

The title of our presentation is Pedagogy of Simultaneity and Learning in the Open.┬áThe gist of our presentation is that there is a heady mix of layers involved in mobile learning in the (wide) open and we need to reconfigure our pedagogies for formal education to make use of that. We define open in a slightly different way than the academic open (as in open access, or open learning). We define it to mean open in the physical sense. Outside the confines of the classroom, where a multitude of variables are competing for our attention and are perpetually being synthesized for meaning. Either way, the presentation doesn’t make that much sense without the text. I am hoping to record a version of audio for it as well and upload that to Slideshare.

First the presentation (mostly visuals) and then the paper (all text).
