Rave Wireless for Teaching and Learning

Posted by Cathy Kelley on May 21, 2008

Faculty who attended this morning’s presentation at our TNT Institute by Patty Kahn and two faculty members from Montclair State learned a great deal about using cell phones to enhance teaching and learning. This engaging presentation showed some very interesting ways to keep your students learning once they have left your classroom.

As I mentioned during the presentation, FDU has a relationship with Rave Wireless. All of our residential students get Rave / Sprint phones and all of the Rave services that go with it.  (I also said that all Freshmen have the phones, but that is inaccurate – for now, only residential students have the phones.) But as our faculty saw and experienced first-hand, your students don’t need to have Rave phones to participate in most of the engaging class activities that were presented.

If you are interested in participating in a pilot project to use cell phones for teaching and learning, let me know. Over the next week or so, Neal Sturm and I will be working out some details about a pilot project to run this fall. I’ll keep you posted about this opportunity.

    I am very interested in plans to expand the use of the Rave wireless program to include educational applications. I give some examples of some potential library-related uses here.
