Educause Review > Getting a Handle on Mobile: Perspective

March/April 2011 Educause Review > Getting a Handle on Mobile: Perspectives

On teaching  > Mobile Literacy  > David Parry

"The future our students will inherit is one that will be mediated and stitched together by the mobile web, and I think that ethically, we are called on as teachers to teach them how to use these technologies effectively."

On e-books > E-Reading: The Transition in Higher Education > David McCarthy

"The current optimal e-reading solution for higher education is a robust laptop home base with an ecosystem that interacts with tablets and e-readers for mobile consumption."

On iPads > Why Mobile? > Mary Ann Gawelek, Mary Spataro, and Phil Komarny

"With their students, faculty have become co-learners and pioneers in the classroom. With no models to work from, they had to explore, practice, and discover the iPad's potential for expanding learning."

On websites > Mobile Matters: Communication Trumps Technology > Susan T. Evans

"Mobile is the future for content delivery. Colleges and universities need to establish a strategy now and make the decisions necessary to take advantage of this communication opportunity."

On devices > Mobile: Letting Go of the Device and Building for Innovation > Jim Davis and Rosemary A. Rocchio

"This device-agnostic framework and approach has huge practical advantages in that we can reach the vast majority of our mobile community regardless of what device they are using and we can readily accommodate ever-changing devices."

On change >  Embracing Change: An Interview with Tracy Futhey

"The best I can hope to do is keep an eye on the high level industry trends and directions, and then once we've identified those trends, ride them as best we can to where we think they'll take the market."

  1. Some see the world as it is and ask why. I see the world as it could be and ask why not?

    Not just as it could be, but as it headed now.

    Why use cellphones and other mobile devices?

    Because there are already FIVE BILLION cellphones!

    It's one thing to talk about building structures
    [infra or ultra] and totally another to talk on the subject of using those already present.

    The reason to use "mobile" devices is as simple as Sir Edmund Hillary climbing Mount Everest:

    "Because it's there!"

    No one really needs to ask the question "Why?" we should use mobile devices, the fact that the mobile devices are already there is enough.
