Apple’s Back-to-School Promo – Free iPod Touch

Wireless access has been expanded at SLC and there is more to come.

Students have been coming to campus with Apple computers in large numbers.

This summer Apple is giving away a free iPod Touch during their Back-to-School promotion.

I see many benefits (ex:What new uses will Instructional Technologists consider?) but there may also be some pitfalls. Some quick thoughts:

  • How will wireless network hold up?
  • Will students use the device in of class?
  • Will students use the device outside of class?
  • How will members of the faculty react?
  • What new applications should SLC consider?
  • Will this change the campus culture?
  • Will this change the online culture?

I know there are more topics to consider but I’ve another workshop to attend. Thoughts and/or ideas are welcome.
