Integration of Mobile Devices into CS/CE CurriculumAbstract:The area of Embedded Systems Design has been growing tremendously in recent years. A majoraspect of this growth has been the addition of networking technologies, operating systems, anddatabase management systems to embedded systems. Today, mobile devices might be one of themost pervasive pieces of electronic equipment in our society. A recent study has estimated thetotal number of subscribers of mobile phones in the world to be three billion. As the use ofmobile devices within the society is quickly expanding, mobile learning (m-learning) hasemerged as a potential educational environment to support learning. Mobile devices can beintegrated into classroom teaching to promote excitement in learning.Widespread use of mobile devices makes an opportunity for the computer science andengineering programs to integrate the use of mobile devices into their curriculum to enhance andpromote new ways of teaching and learning. Since young people are very excited about thesedevices, they can be used as motivators for attracting and retaining students in the computerscience and engineering fields. Educators now must come up with innovations on how tointegrate mobile devices into their curriculums.This paper will study different approaches that are used by different colleges and universitiesaround the world to integrate mobile devices into their computer science and engineeringcurriculums. This paper also addresses how the author’s university has integrated use of mobiledevices into their curriculum.
