Understanding Sub-Saharan African Learners Informal Learning Using Mobile Devices: A Case Of Tanzania, Laban Bagui, Samwel Dick Mwapwele 2019 University of Cape Town

Understanding Sub-Saharan African Learners Informal Learning Using Mobile Devices: A Case Of Tanzania, Laban Bagui, Samwel Dick Mwapwele

The African Journal of Information Systems

In this era of pervasive computing and the Internet, learners everywhere connect and reconnect to knowledge away from classrooms, via mobile devices and their Mobile Instant Messaging platforms (MIMs). Still, many sub-Saharan African educators continue to confine these platforms to recreational activities. There is lack therefore of knowledge about how learners from sub-Saharan Africa perform such informal and experiential learning. This paper presents a case study of Tanzanian learners learning in informal settings using their mobile devices and MIMs. It deploys the rhizomatic learning theory with the aim of understanding how such learning occurs. Findings suggest that learners use mobile ...

Wearable Bluetooth Sensors For Capturing Relational Variables And Temporal Variability In Relationships: A Construct Validation Study, James G. Matusik, Ralph Heidl, John R. Hollenbeck, Andrew Yu, Hun W. Lee, Michael D. Howe

Michael Howe

The advent of wearable sensor technologies has the potential to transform organizational research by offering the unprecedented opportunity to collect continuous, objective, highly granular data over extended time periods. Recent evidence has demonstrated the potential utility of Bluetooth-enabled sensors, specifically, in identifying emergent networks via colocation signals in highly controlled contexts with known distances and groups. Although there is proof of concept that wearable Bluetooth sensors may be able to contribute to organizational research in highly controlled contexts, to date there has been no explicit psychometric construct validation effort dedicated to these sensors in field settings. Thus, the two studies ...

Online Word-Of-Mouth And Mobile Product Reviews:An Experimental Investigation Of The Mediating Role Of Mobile Self Efficacy, Christopher P. Furner, Robert A. Zinko, Zhen Zhu, William Mcdowell, Adam Dalton

Adam Dalton

Online word-of-mouth (WOM) has been studied extensively by electronic commerce researchers, particularly in the realm of online product reviews. As mobile computing becomes more and more common, difference in navigation and the ability to foster focus may lead to changes in the way in which consumers read and react to mobile product reviews compared to online reviews. We use research related to mobile computing limitations, Mobile Self Efficacy and information overload to outlines a study in which two common online review outcomes, trust in the review and purchase intention are evaluated in a mobile environment.

The Suitability Of Agile Principles In Iot Development, Wouter Moedt, Margeret Hall, Sachin Pawaskar, Reinhard Bernsteiner, Ann Fruhling

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

Agile software development is a popular approach which focuses on creating (small) working pieces of software in iterations. One of the major benefits is that it allows the customer to provide feedback and change requirements during the development phase. The enhanced and transparent collaboration with the customer therefore leads to outcomes that better match their specifications, which can save time and money when compared to traditional approaches, such as plan-driven development.

Another new paradigm is the Internet of Things (IoT), which is starting to become one of the largest technological industry segments worldwide. With the rise of agile software development ...
