With the release of the iPad2, Apple declared this to be a "Post-PC" era... in in some regards, it definitely is: iOS, Android, and other operating systems account for a growing share of web traffic and educational acceptance of these systems is at an all time high as administrators and instructors struggle to fit mobile computing within their classes.
Is this always a good approach though? What are the limitations of these devices?
We will explore developments in mobile computing over the past few years, looking specifically at smartphones, tablets, and their use in academic settings.
What makes these devices great? Where are they lacking? What will future iterations of such operating systems and devices bring... and what role does traditional desktop computing have in all of this?
Attendees will walk away with a clear understanding of the state of mobile computing, how it applies to education, what to look out for when adopting a mobile platform for use in academia, and a good idea of what to expect in the next 12 months.
