Wi-Fi in the Classroom


The New York Times has an article today about the increasing use of Wi-Fi in the classroom. BYU has deployed Wi-Fi in many areas, but it wasn't available in the classroom I was in last semester. The article quotes a few professors who are miffed that students are off surfing the web instead of paying attention. I'm not very concerned about that. My philosophy about class has always been that students can come get something out of it if they want or not---their choice. It would be interesting to run EtherPEG in class though and capture some of the traffic to display at the end of class. Do that a few times and people would probably be more careful in their surfing.
