Abstract or Description

This report gives an overview to RFID technology, whilst outlining the current and future uses of the technology within further and higher education. Technologies such as mobile phones and PDA's have the potential to change the nature of teaching; RFID acts as a technology that enables open, mobile learning experiences. RFID technology has been at the centre on much technological hype. The fragmentation of the industry has seen the proliferation of many different technologies and standards. The collection, organisation and dissemination of this vast array of information was a key part of the report, however, the real value of the work lies in the insights and ideas it gives around new applications and uses of RFID.

Additional Information:

Technology and Standards Watch helps keep track of developments in information and communication technologies that might have high impact on the core business of Further and Higher education in five to ten years' time. It commissions reports on specific technologies and provides many links from this site to technology resources elsewhere on the Web. The report was peer reviewed. This report pulled upon seven years experience in the designing of RFID related technology, it allowed Ward to consolidate and apply his knowledge in an educational context.
