On-Campus Wireless Internet

mLearning

The topic of easy-to-use, reliable wireless access to the internet came to the fore today, so I thought I should write about it. I heard from a number of people on our Yammer social network that they believed that our institution’s wireless service was difficult to connect to and only available in scattered areas around the campus.

Mobile wireless eReader a sign of the ubiquitous future to come

This is the future of mobile, wireless devices and why they are leading towards a true ubiquitous, everware future. Even small mobile devices now have the ability to connect wirelessly to all the information etc they need to be fully functioning. (Guest post by Jonathan Nalder) I’m not a fan of Amazon’s Kindle eBook Reader. Not only is it not available in my country, but I feel the days of paying over US$350 for a device that only does one thing are long gone.

BLOG.MAGWEBBER.COM: Week 12 - Mobile, Wireless and Ubiquitous Learning

mlearnopedia delicious

Indiana University R685 - WebberBlog Main Navigation BLOG.MAGWEBBER.COM: Week 12 - Mobile, Wireless and Ubiquitous Learning Week 12 - Mobile, Wireless and Ubiquitous Learning This week we had a great synchronous session hosted by Dr Bonk with John Traxlar presenting from the UK and students engaging from all over the US, which was also taped for viewing asynchronously at a later time. John is Professor of Mobile Learning, probably the worlds first, and Director of the Learning Lab at the University of Wolverhampton. He is a Director of the International Association for Moblie Learning, Associate Editor of the International Journal of Mobile and Blended Learning and also of Interactive Learning Environments. He co-wrote a guide to mobile learning in developing countries and is co-editor of the definitive book on mobile learning: Kukulska-Hulme, A. and Traxler, J. (2005) Mobile Learning: A Handbook for Educators and Trainers, Routledge. His take on the lack of sustainability worsening since initial views prior to his study in 2002 was one of the most interesting points for me. In 2002, pdas were extremely popular and combined with dumb cell phones in business, and it sounds like his team thought the future would combine them into one device (which it did) and thus encourage stability of platforms, little variety in physical characteristics of cell phones (like desktop phones). In fact, the opposite has happened. Cell phones have become more of individually-geared fashion statements than they have learning devices, at least in a formal learning way. I was intrigued by Johns input on formal learning and how it could be done via mobile devices by scenario based drills seem to be a very worthwhile pursuit. This is applicable for stimulating higher order thinking processes through cell phones which is something I had not considered at all.

The wireless was very poor with many demonstrations failing due to lack of connectivity.

Over my career I have become a technology "conference veteran" beginning with Comdex in the 80’s. This event grew to over 220,000 attendees and over 20,000 vendors.
