Starting this fall, Hiram College—a liberal arts institution in northeast Ohio—becomes one of a small number of colleges and universities throughout the country to roll out a 1:1 campus-wide mobile technology program. This 1:1 program issues all full-time traditional college students, faculty and staff a state-of-the-art technology package.
As a longtime educator, I know that mobile technology plays an increasingly prominent role in the lives of today’s students. Until very recently, however, colleges and universities have not been as quick as K-12 schools to implement institutional-wide mobile programs. Indeed, many of us are just now in the midst of conceptualizing and implementing a mobile technology program for our own campus.
