Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the effects of introducing mobile computing via the use of Tablet PCs into the learning environment of multimedia students. We explain our aspirations for this group of students who mainly belong to Generation Y and our expectation that increased mobility would enhance their collaborative skills and motivate further engagement with their learning resources. We describe the methodology we employed to observe what really happened, discuss the communicative ecology, and analyze the lessons learned with this venture of introducing mobile technology into the learning community.
