Ubiquitous Computing and Podcasting for Curriculum Integration

What does it take to achieve ubiquitous computing?

- A mobile computing environment: laptops and handhelds

- A wireless network to service devices and provide Intranet and Internet access

- A tech support department ready to cope with connectivity and other problems

- A desire to enhance student-led learning and authentic assessment

- A practical approach to 'Just-in-Time' professional development and integration objectives

Handheld and Laptop Initiatives For Education: 1-to-1 computing!


Using handhelds to access and share information: (MP3 files, eBooks, beaming files)

What can be done using Podcasting as a tool in a ubiquitous computing environment?

This is limited only by your imagination?

- Downloading and listening to relevant curriculum-based material made off-campus

- Teacher-created material to support internal needs (e.g. school production rehearsal songs; Language B material)

- School-created podcasts for community engagement and fun!

- Student-created podcasts for assessment, reflection, interaction, collaboration (aiming for 'real' dialogue rather than regurgitated material: plagerism avoidence)
