Why are Wireless Services Important to State and Education Leaders?
Southern Regional Education Board
The emergence of wireless technology is already evident in many ways: as an important delivery format for off-site access to campus learning resources and services, such as online student registration; in course management systems used to facilitate online courses; in the skyrocketing use of e-mail and online communications among and between teachers and students; and in the rapid growth of distance learning via the Web, video conferencing and satellite television. In order to benefit from these changes and the potential for even greater educational opportunities, education leaders and state policy-makers should understand these trends and prepare to incorporate and benefit from them.
