Ubiquitous Computing
How Anytime, Anywhere, Anyone Technology Is Changing Education

Welcome to the online segment of RCET's Ubiquitous Computing Project. Most likely you arrived on this page by following a link on the DVD. if so, please note that the navigation at the top of this page corresponds to the five main sections on the disk.

Some of the information that is on the DVD is repeated on these web pages to accomodate those who do not have access to the disk. However, the main purpose of the online component is to provide supplementary and up-to-date information about ubiquitous computing.

Here is what DVD users are saying:

The DVD Ubiquitous Computing developed by the Research Center for Educational Technology at Kent State University provides a number of outstanding international examples of the power of mobile computing. This DVD is a valuable resource for any educational professional working with technology (Michael Berson, PhD., Professor of Social Science Education, University of South Florida).

If you do not have a copy of the DVD and would like to receive one, please click on the DVD cover below for ordering instructions. There is no charge for this.
