Froyo will have built in USB tethering so you can share your data connection with your laptop... And even better: you can turn your Android phone into a portable wifi hotspot as well.@concretekax asks four great questions this morning on his blog that all school admins and teachers should be thinking about right about now:
Are you ready for students creating their own wi-fi hotspots? You better be. Because this is the type of thing that more than anything suggests what the future looks like: it's mobile, it's accessible, what used to be public is personal and what used to be personal is public.
- Will this type of technology make cable connections obsolete
- Is paying to put Wi-Fi hotspots in school buildings also a waste of money?
- Will schools allow students to use this technology or
paywaste money on equipment to block the signals?
- Will this help end the filtering debates and make CIPA irrelevant?
Better get to work on those new digital health classes you are going to be offering. You'll have a couple extra bucks to pay for 'em now that your Internet blocking software is obsolete.
