Abstract

The paper describes two case studies in the MobIT research project that examines how students entering the University of Lapland in autumn 2004 make use of laptop computers and the wireless campus network in teaching, studying and learning. The first case study looks at the extent to which and how the introduction of mobile technology has been perceived as influencing teaching studying and learning. The dimensions examined are teachability, studiability and learnability. Additional focal interests are how these impacts are perceived as changing over the five-year follow-up period and what pedagogical strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities become associated with the use of the laptops and the wireless network. The second of the case studies looks at how the introduction of mobile technology has influenced students' joining the student community, the activities in that community, studying and learning. The topic is approached in four perspectives: teaching-studying-learning, mobile technology, sense of community, and interaction.
