Quote of the Day

“Today, students have a choice of technologies and ownership of them. They bring their own cell phones to campus and use them for calling, often choosing not to share the phone numbers with the institution. They bring their own e-mail and IM accounts and their own computers. And that last bastion of institutional communication—the .edu portal—has arguably given way to social sites like MySpace, Facebook, or Daily Jolt. College and university administrators no longer own the communication channels central to student life.”
RAVE Wireless co-founder, Raju Rishi, in an article in Educause Magazine entitled Always Connected, but Hard to Reach that offered great insights into how students-and therefore many others like them–use technologies to communicate and manage their lives.
