Harvard Professor Encourages Teachers to Embrace Mobile Devices to Reach More Students

Harvard Professor Chris Dede is encouraging teachers to embrace the mobile technology in the classroom in order to engage more students and to involve them in our evolving and fast paced economy.

“Can you imagine a student standing in the middle of the real world, with all its confusion and challenges, but they have a device with them that knows who they are, how they learn, where they are, what around them has been augmented for learning, who they like to learn with, and how to reach those people? That’s a very intriguing vision.”
