  • Academia has embraced and started to embrace even more mobile technologiesThere are iPad tours for incoming fresh men, many schools have mobile website and apps, you can for example check class schedule, see what computer is available in the lab, view your course contents, see bus schedules etcIt also read one school let you apply via an app to law schooland if a college or university wants to be were today students are they really need to have as many service mobile ready [move to next slide]
  • Recent study about College students and technology – data was collected in 2010Talk about undergraduates, community college, graduate studentsLet’s have a look at Lehman mobile web statistics [new slide]
  • Visitor comparison: Jan 1, 2010 – Nov 1, 2010 to Jan 1, 2011 – Nov 1, 2011; more students are using mobile devices to access the college websiteThose are the most current data I have in terms of what devices students are using. II have really noticed an increase of students coming being on campus with mobile devices (including tablets)Mention hunter survey on website
  • How about libraries and librarians?Well most librarian are very service oriented and the service the library offers, - mainly to be able to access information at the point of need (for example on bus)– is ideal for the mobile world[next slide – library examples]http://www.flickr.com/photos/ellf/3891166649/
  • Libraries offer: mobile websites [next slide Lehman]Virtual ToursWe could add much more:text a librarian,QR codes in the stacks, library catalog made for the mobile device, mobile databases and research tools the list goes on and onAll of these have on goal to support today’s learners [move to next slide]Preview of Lehmans Mobile Website – Mobile Library Website – service at the point of need
  • This all support the modern Urban students, Our studentscommute a lot, between work and school, Not set to learn and study in one place, one device…they want to be able to switch between places, devices etc[next slide –student]
  • Lehman College Library Information Literacy:The mission of our Information Literacy program can be summed up in two words: Student EmpowermentWe seek to teach students to teach themselves and guide students in the process of learning how to learnConcept of information literacy and adjusted it for the new learner….Critical thinkingEvaluating information etc…This sounds all great, but for quite some time we have been thinking something is missing here….Allie is an avid Android user and I am an iPhone user, we also noticed and we both noticed more and more students asking us about good apps, or if an book is also available on the phoneAdding onto this I was asked to write a column on Mobile website and apps for nursing faculty and students – and boy was this an eye opener – I have to admit it, I had no idea about all the apps and mobile website available to support nursing students and facultySo that’s how we came up with a new term [ move to next slide]

  • Simply said, I want my students to know that they can search certain databases on the phone, that some apps give reliable, authoritative information – become a smart searcher – make sure that the phone is more than just a toy to text/play onSo we decided to not only talk about it but [next slide]
