Students and their devices

QuoteThere’s an interesting quote in ComputerWorld magazine this month, from Professor Adam Shoemaker, Monash University’s deputy vice-chancellor of education. He was talking about the idea of rolling technology costs into student fees to address learning inequalities:

  We see students come in on their first year…and they are on three different learning speeds. The ones who come in with a device are on one speed, the ones who have to share one at home are on another, and then there’s the ones who have nothing.  

I think I’ll keep this handy – it’s both an interesting quote for a presentation, but also a challenging one to think about how learning services are delivered to students – and what the definition of ‘a device’ might be this year and in the future.
