Gaining Mobility  Annotated(1)

  • Quote: “Mobile University provides a standardized, one-on-one device that mirrors the ThinkPad program and all manner of campus services,” said Crouch. “This pilot gives us a chance to work through the logistics.” It’s likely students don’t mind being the guinea pigs in the process, Swofford said. “This is not a luxury device; it’s their whole life.”

    Note: Interesting article on Wake Forest’s pilot of smart phones with their students. It’s all about access to information, interaction with peers and teachers, and connecting to a larger community. (via Dean Shareski)
