Q1 In what ways is the Wi-Fi technology changing the life of Dartmouth students? Relate your answer to the concept of the digital society.
1: The college society is changing under the influence of Wi-Fi technology. The college societyis enjoying the new and influential network in many ways, but is yet developing constantlyimprovements how to make the technology even more effective by introducing new programmesand procedures. The wireless technology is accelerating the innovation among the society,resulting emergence of new technologies that the students are developing. Wi-Fi has changed theway the college
s professors educate and also how the students are learning. Interactivity hasincreased students
involvement during the taught courses and using new technology has enabled
students ―wanting to give answers‖. Wireless network has
introduced virtual communities,provided on-line entertainment and altered the way the students obtain information
allcharacteristics of the digital society.
Some say that the wireless system will become part of the background of everybody’s
that the mobile devices are just an afterthought. Explain
2. In the near future companies and societies are introducing increasingly more wirelesssolutions because they tend to increase productivity by simplifying communication, removingphysical obstacles and when installed they are able to serve big masses at the same time.Wireless systems will also replace wired systems and it has already started in a large scale. Somestates have even introduced a nation-covering wireless networks for the citizens. The wirelesstechnologies give pressure to the device manufacturers to produce such devices that takeadvantage of the given wireless technology.
Q3 Is the system contributing to improved learning, or just adding entertainment that may reduce the time available for studying? Debate your point of view with students who hold a different opinion.
3. WI-Fi system is impacting positively on both studying itself and increasing entertainment inthe network. Actually, partially the increased entertainment is a result of innovations made by themembers. Further, new teaching techniques enabled by the new technology motivate students tobe active and involved during the courses. People who want to study will study no matter howmuch entertainment was available.
Q4 What are the major benefits of the wireless system over the previous wireline one? Do you think wireline systems will disappear from campuses one day? (Do some research on the topic.)
4. Major benefits of the new technology are numerous. The most obvious one is that thecomputer and other devices do not need no be physically attached to wire lines anymore. Thisenables people to use the network where ever in the network area. The second benefit is that boththe students and the college's employees learn to use the technology effectively. Innovativeness
