Mobile learning and environment

Last week we, EOI students, were given a brand-new Samsung Galaxy tablet as part of the mobile learning policy of the School. To be honest, it took me a few days to take it out of its box, as I’m not really fond of the idea of being permanently connected to the world. I couldn’t see its use having a laptop to work with, but everything changed yesterday and I can say… I’m now a believer!

What was it? Easy, I had to prepare an exam, I had all my notes on PDF format and I had to move around the city in order to solve couple of personal matters, including voting in the elections. Then I realised not only how useful it was going to be the time I had to expend in the bus, reading my notes from my new tablet, but also how environmentally friendly the tablet can be.

Without it, most probably, I would have printed the whole bunch of slides, wasting paper, ink, energy and myprecious time. With the tablet I was able to enjoy full colour documents and keep on reading on the move. Amazing!

The only thing I can expect now is for Android technology to incorporate the WWF format, the ecological PDF that can be read but not printed and that’s already available for Mac OS X.
