Abstract

This study proposes to investigate differences in students' perceptions between traditional desktop computers with a "wired" network connection and portable laptop computers with a wireless network connection. All students will use both technologies for a variety of assigned class telecommunications activities in a graduate teacher education course. A comparison will be made of students' perceptions on the basis of four different equipment factors and four different human factors, with the intent of determining under what conditions wireless laptop computers are preferable over the traditional wired computers with regard to specific classroom telecommunications activities.
