Looking Beyond the Parameters of Established Teaching and Learning:Using Mobile Technology to Improve Learning via Web2 SoftwareApplication and Mobile Data Transfer Systems. ©
 Research Proposal by Pierre Lamont Dingley Module Code –12986 
November 2009. Draft 1.©
The research paper will explore and discuss the use of “
mobile”
(1)
computer learning technology tools(Web2) for teaching “

courses and will offer suggestions of how to improvestudent learning outcomes and to assist learning facilitators

(teachers) in becoming more efficient in their use of time.The use of computer-based teaching technologies is becomingincreasingly more prevalent within the United Kingdom SecondaryEducation System. Two common technologies utalised incurriculum management systems are Notebooks and Wireless Network Systems. (Including mobile phones within thisdefinition.) When these are combined with the use of Notebook and desk top PCs that allow the use of Web2 software byteachers/facilitators and students, new pedagogical tools becomeeasier to use in and out of the classroom. This research proposalwill focus specifically on Web2 Application within the focus of teaching within Academy360. A new Academy within Sunderland,(North East England.)In addition, web-based support tools have been developed tosupport pupil-student instruction and innovations continue toappear. When combined, the use of computer-based teachingtechnologies can combine to form a dynamic teaching environmentthat is highly mobile, ubiquitous, and stimulating.The purpose of this paper is to describe the mobile learningtechnology that harnesses the academic versatility
 
and power of mobile PC systems that incorporate Web2 softwareapplication in a learning environment (Secondary Education) toenhance student learning and engagement while increasing theefficiency of the teacher’s use of time. The paper will discusscurrent Web2 software and application tools within an educational –tuition context. This in terms of specific examples of how theseenvironments (Web2) can be used to augment teaching andlearning within and outside of the classroom. The paper willspecifically explore the use of Voice Thread and Creative CADsoftware application within specific areas of instruction where theuse of these technologies exhibits especially significant net benefits to pupil learning, with a focus in the following areas:Computer-assisted presentations, assignments and pupil self-evaluation; (AFL), electronic evaluation of pupil(EEP) writtenwork;
visual learning 
pedagogy and the use of mobile phones asdata transfer systems within a modern learning environment. The paper will also provide information on effective use byexperienced teachers who have used these technologies in their own learning environments.

Computer-based learning environments are increasingly becomingcommonplace at Secondary / Primary schools and within the BSFPrograms – (Academy). Two computer-based technologies are becoming increasingly prevalent in the delivery of onsite tuition:(1) online curriculum management systems and specializedcollaborative environments that permit electronic communicationof classroom instruction materials to pupils, among pupils and between pupil and teacher; and (2) wireless network systems thatallow curriculum areas and pupils with mobile computers and(phones) to communicate with their campus networks. However,recent innovations in laptop computing have led to the
 
development of a computer that is very well designed for use inteaching: The Notebook and I Phone. These small and very portable mobile PCs are in every respect as effective as desktop PCsystems. The mobile PC represents a significant step forward inmobile computing learning technology. Moreover, Internet-basedsupport tools (Web2) are being continually developed to supportinstruction-tuition. When combined these mobile computinglearning tools can be combined to create a learning environmentthat one can argue is an evolutionary leap forward technologicallyand promises curriculum and pedagogy changes that will increaseefficiencies of educational production and enhance studentlearning.The purpose of this paper will be to describe the use of mobilelearning technology tools in general terms and how these tools can be used to augment teaching and learning in the classroom. The paper will discuss areas of instruction where the uses of thesetechnologies potentially exhibit significant net benefits to studentlearning via the use of Web2 application. Mobile data transfer,with a specific emphasis on Apple Hardware and Software as particular to my focus study within Academy 360.The research paper shall be organised into three parts: 1.Evaluating and discussing the necessary hardware and software tocreate a wireless teaching environment; 2. Describing how thesetools may be used in the traditional classroom to successfully promote learning; and 3. Describing how these tools may be usedoutside of the traditional classroom and indeed inside the virtualclassroom to help promote student understanding within “
visual 
 
literacy”
.4.Conclusion, to examine areas of future development.The author of this study has been is employed at differentsecondary educational institutions within South Africa, NorthAmerica and the United Kingdom. He has many years of teaching
