The 2011 Horizon Report places mobile devices as a top technology to watch for in the coming year.2 Our article focuses on mobile computing with a tablet PC, drawing from over five years of experience teaching with tablets in outdoor, field-based classes. We discuss three classes — Environmental Science, Ecology, and Biology — in which we tap the “educational potential of our backyards.”
