Technologies Where Students Live
Framing question for this learning circle: What is the future of the traditional residence hall computer lab?
With most students coming to campus fully equipped with wireless laptops, mobile phones, portable video/music players, and even wireless printers, what are the implications for residence hall computer labs? Are fixed workstations still needed when almost everyone has a computer down the hall? Do students want to collaborate? Are presentation and projection important? Gaming and multimedia? Videoconferencing? What relevant technologies can we support in student living spaces, and in what context?
