Mobile Computing: A 5 Day Sprint—Monday, April 25, 2011
From staying one step ahead of emerging and evolving platforms to determining the best apps for learning, few concepts dominate the conversation in higher education today like mobility. Why has the mobile revolution transfixed our students, our IT departments, and our conversations around the boardroom table? And how can we, as a community, forge ahead? In this informal and interactive conversation, Joanne Kossuth, vice president for Operations and Chief Information Officer at the Olin College of Engineering, and educational technology blogger Alan Levine, former Vice President Community & CTO for the NMC, will kick off a week of dialogue around mobile computing on campus, trying to break down why mobility has become a burning issue on campus and what key challenges lie ahead.
