The number of UW students using their mobile phones for educational purposes continues to increase, according to data from the most recent EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR) study of undergraduate students and information technology. This maintains a trend identified by last year’s survey. An analysis of the data by UW-IT suggests that the UW would benefit from a mobile teaching and learning initiative to guide the effective use of mobile devices in the classroom.
