Using wireless collaboration to enhance university learning spaces and encourage mobile learning practices

Dominic William Pates

Abstract


This article is a reflection on a presentation, given at the APT 2017 conference, on a case study of wireless iPad projection for enhancing Civil Engineering teaching at City, University of London. It considers how mobile devices might facilitate transformed pedagogies, if socialised within learning spaces.
