Executive Summary

This paper introduces wireless grids and discusses its potential impact on cyber-learning by presenting specifications and features under consideration as well as a roadmap which guides the current work. Mechanisms for cyber-learning environments need to be devised to support peer-to-peer communication, in addition to human-computer communication, where human users and software agents coexist and interact. Wireless technologies are resulting in escalating transformations of the educational world. The question is; how are wireless technologies affecting the learning environment and pedagogy? The authors propose the exploration of wireless grids technologies to find answers. Much of the literature describes wireless technologies as a tool; they do not control learning, nor do students program them.
