Educause: Handheld and Mobile Computing Constituent Group


Yes, this means Tablet PCs & UMPCs to.

I briefly exchanged emails with Trace Choulat, who is organizing the Educause Handheld & Mobile Computing Constituent Group session. People interested in or already using mobile PCs, Tablet PCs, ultra-portables, & UMPCs are welcome to attend to exchange ideas about uses in higher education. The abstract has now been updated to reflect the range of mobile computing devices and PCs that people are now using. 

The Handheld and Mobile Computing Constituent Group was formerly known as Personal Digital Assistants (PDA). As hand-held and mobile technology has progressed group interest has evolved, and this session will focus discussion on the innovative and functional uses for mobile computing devices in higher education today. Creative ideas for projects utilizing mobile computing in teaching, learning, and administration will be explored. Topics will include hardware, applications, tools, special uses, wireless and mobile connectivity, web services, support issues, security, and others.

Also, if a faculty member attending Educause wants to request a Birds of Feather for Wednesday or Thursday, that would be fantastic. Volunteers? Here are the instructions that I was given:

The meetings can be scheduled on the BOF bulletin board located near the conference registration area. Those interested in particular topic meetings should check the same bulletin board after 2 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday for that day’s topics and room locations.

Thanks for your help with this Mark & Trace!
