Commentary by Stephen Downes

This article discusses the impact of wireless connectivity on teaching and learning in the classroom. I think the key point is this: "The notion of college as a separate space removed from the world, already weakened by the internet, is further sapped by mobile access to the world beyond the ivory tower. The campus becomes a different place when a student can connect with a content expert anywhere in the world from the steps of a gym, or compare notes with a student on another continent from a classroom doorway."
