In September 2004, the Technology Support Newsletter for Students at Teachers College set out this schedule:
TC’s wireless access has been expanded. The renovated Library and all of Grace Dodge Hall now have wireless access in addition to the locations set up last year: the Cafeteria, Everett Lounge, and several classrooms in Thompson and Horace Mann. . . . Wireless access will become available in Main Hall by December of this year. The remaining campus buildings will be covered by the end of August, proceeding clockwise around the block.
These grand old buildings where 20th century education was in significant part conceived are entering the unfolding ubiquitous computing arena where 21st century education is emerging. John Dewey’s ghost is probably tapping with his thumbbones on a virtual Hiptop in a dusty turret.
