EDUCAUSE Review Online
The actions toward contemporary transcultural presentation occurs in art practices, and specifically the motif of the action in their manifest art forms. Whenever a discourse is purportedly attached to a certain action or events, the two were originally interrelated. The answer to these enquiries is inexorably connected to the resolution of another complex challenge that concerns the discourses on the enlightenment and the unfolding events attributed to transcultural practitioners by various art promoters.

We should not confuse education with learning. Learning is something that focuses on the very specific; education focuses on much broader learning which is relevant to a particular society's survival. The two intersect, but are not the same just as school is not the same as education.

The What Educators Should Know Before Going Digital Infographic highlights some of the areas of technology that educators should examine before moving to a digital platform.
Something has happened in the mobile communications market that has caused a tremendous uptick in operators going to LTE. The GSA recently announced that there were now 202 commercial LTE networks in 77 countries!
Mobile broadband, in my opinion, will overtake the campus network as the primary Internet connectivity. This will happen when access, cost and seamless user exprience provides a real alternative to the campus network. (Institutions should think about Internet cost subsidies to students versus and in lieu major network infra-structure investments on campus).
When this happens, it would by-pass the "last mile" infrastructure challenge. Learning will be everywhere for everyone.
LTE is one step nearer that reality!
