Catching up?

One of me in SL

This is "me"

Whoops! only just realised that yesterday occurred – I blame copyright – struggling with writing about copyright in even vaguely friendly terms turns the brain to mush and makes time stand still 🙂 Anyway sorry about that folks – now to more interesting stuff.

Looking around the web I’ve found a few things that might tickle your fancy:) One is the idea of losing the PC. This idea has been around for a long time but it looks as if the iPhone and iPad are accelerating its demise. This short post from the ReadWriteWeb blog has a few things to say about the matter. I wonder how the loss of the PC will affect teaching in HE?

At least JISC have been thinking about what might happen. This presentation about mobile learning is anticipating the demise of the PC – it’s also anticipating the changing demands on HE.

Higher Education is looking towards the future and wondering what the new student will be looking for. This survey of a small group (1,000) of school children from 13-17 years of age seems to indicate that they will want a far more flexible way of accessing HE. Will mobile learning be the way for us to go?
