  3. 3. TEEM'2015, PORTO 3 Introduction and Motivation The use of smart phones within university students is increasing.  My experience as a lecturer shows that currently there is a very strong connection between students and mobile devices. Mobile applications will be a common tool for teaching and learning purposes very soon. Students are ready for this change.  The intensive and constant use of smart phones by students makes it difficult to stop its use inside the classroom.
  4. 4. TEEM'2015, PORTO 4 Introduction and Motivation How fast will teachers be ready to cope with their development and use of these technologies?  Decisive aspects that will influence the use of mobile applications for teaching/learning purposes are: How can a teacher/student with no specialization in mobile devices programming develop an application? For Android devices an answer to the last question can be the use of MIT App-Inventor 2.
  5. 5. TEEM'2015, PORTO 5 MIT App Inventor 2: Key Issues  Designer provides a Palette with several blocks libraries, allowing building the application user interface and visualizing it at the same time Why using the MIT App Inventor?  Uses drag-and-drop programming methodology with building blocks.  No syntax problems.
  6. 6. TEEM'2015, PORTO 6 MIT App Inventor 2: Key Issues  The process of designing an application and make it readily available for testing and use in a mobile device can be very fast. Why using the MIT App Inventor?  Using the QR code or provided character code.
  7. 7. TEEM'2015, PORTO 7 Apps for Teaching/Learning Automation and Feedback Control  Applications developed with MIT App-Inventor have been used in UTAD to teach industrial automation/ feedback control courses:
  8. 8. TEEM'2015, PORTO 8 Apps for Teaching/Learning Automation and Feedback Control  eLogicum is a simple application which can be used to revise basic notions concerning logic operators. Global objective of this application is to bridge the following important aspects: i. mathematical representation of simple logic equations concerning fundamental operators; ii. representation of those equations using an electric circuit; iii. Ladder Logic Diagram representation. AND OR NOT XOR EDGES INFO
  9. 9. TEEM'2015, PORTO 9 eLogicum Example: OR operator
  10. 10. TEEM'2015, PORTO 10 eLogicum Example: XOR operator
  11. 11. TEEM'2015, PORTO 11 Automatum  The Automatum application was developed to support courses of Industrial Automation and Control in the UTAD University in Portugal.  While the Application texts are (at this stage) in Portuguese, for exposition sake some of its components are translated here to English. Topics Quizzes Problems Tutorials

  13. 13. TEEM'2015, PORTO 13 Automatum Quiz Example T5
  14. 14. TEEM'2015, PORTO 14 Automatum Tutorial Example
  15. 15. TEEM'2015, PORTO 15 Automatum Problems:  A set of problems covering several topics of industrial automation and control to be solved by students.
  16. 16. TEEM'2015, PORTO 16 MCS-2015  MCS-2015 is application developed to complement the Modelling and Control Systems course to Biomedical Engineering .
  17. 17. TEEM'2015, PORTO 17 Teach2Student and Student2Teach Apps  Teach2Student(T2S) and Student2Teach(S2T) were developed two link teachers and students. Teach2Student Enables teachers: • to post their students courses main class’s issues. • provide students with specific quizzes. Student2Teach Enables students: • to visualize the posts and perform quizzes submitted by their teachers.
  18. 18. TEEM'2015, PORTO 18 Teach2Student and Student2Teach Apps  After registering and sign in the teacher can manage until four courses Teacher2Student In this case the course is Industrial Automation
  19. 19. TEEM'2015, PORTO 19 Teach2Student and Student2Teach Apps  A maximum of 5 Posts can be prepared and sent to Student2Teach, per lecture.  Two types of quizzes can be selected by teachers: Teacher2Student
  20. 20. TEEM'2015, PORTO 20 Teach2Student and Student2Teach Apps  After selecting the quiz type, the teacher as to insert the question and answers. Teacher2Student
  21. 21. TEEM'2015, PORTO 21 Teach2Student and Student2Teach Apps  After selecting the quiz type, the teacher as to insert the question and answers. Teacher2Student
  22. 22. TEEM'2015, PORTO 22 Teach2Student and Student2Teach Apps  Students can get the posts for the different, courses: Student2Teach
  23. 23. TEEM'2015, PORTO 23 Teach2Student and Student2Teach Apps  Students can get posts for the different, courses:Student2Teach
  24. 24. TEEM'2015, PORTO 24 Teach2Student and Student2Teach Apps  Students can get and use quizzes to test their knowledge. Student2Teach
  25. 25. TEEM'2015, PORTO 25 Teach2Student and Student2Teach Apps  Students can get and use quizzes to test their knowledge. Student2Teach
  26. 26. TEEM'2015, PORTO 26 Preliminary Results  Student2Teach application was tested in a course with 18 UTAD students attending to the Automation and Control course from which 9 had an Android phone.  A survey inquiry with 11 questions was filled by students (see paper for details).  This small sample results was quite positive and some suggestions were already followed in refining the presented version in this presentation.:
  27. 27. TEEM'2015, PORTO 27 Conclusion and Current/Future Work  Applications developed with the MIT App Inventor to teach/learn Industrial Automation and Control were reported.  Two applications named Teach2Student and Student2Teach were developed to bridge teachers and students.  Teach2Student enable teachers to send posts and quizzes to their students.  Student2Teach enable students to see the posts and quizzes prepared by students.  Preliminary results obtained with a small sample are positive. However a more representative sample is necessary to validate these two apps
