Abstract

Those of us who are educators strive to find and create landscapes for inquiry within and beyond the classroom, and for many, new technologies and interdisciplinary efforts offer an opportunity for these strivings. At the surface, our disciplines contain information and perspectives; these inform and enrich each other, and with active learning, shared world experience, observation, collaboration, and reflection, they become the knowledge and culture of critical thought. Each innovation in technology brings a new opportunity to education. Some, like the Internet, are proven and widely used; others, like educational software, have had less success. Still others are new and just beginning to see their first use. In this article, experiences and perspectives are presented on the use of relatively new technologies, wireless, specifically 802.11 (Wi-Fi) and 3G enabled devices, and a framework of collaboration as tools for instruction and learning in digital video media classes.
