Laptops for a Digital Lifestyle: Millenial Students and Wireless Mobile Technologies
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes findings relating to the implementation of wireless mobile computing with a small group of undergraduate students in a university setting. The purpose was to explore the digital lifestyle afforded by the availability of this technology, particularly with millennial students. This group is characterised by information connectedness, multitasking, and a focus on immediacy. The research built on a previous study to identify key aspects of these attributes as they emerged in this setting. It also identified issues with integrating wireless laptops into curricula, and infrastructural imperatives that need to be considered to successfully engage students in using mobile wireless technologies.
