…students can evolve into innovative entrepreneurs and technically savvy individuals whose thoughts can be geared towards the next generation of computing devices – smartphones and tablets.
Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
WFT Cloud - India, a division of Wharfedale Technologies (WFT), today announced the successful completion of its pilot training program on “The Future of Computing on Mobile Platforms” for an International School located in Chennai, India. The Pilot Training Program was aimed at educating students on the need for mobility devices and in cultivating their thoughts towards developing applications for mobile devices.
Pioneering in the cloud platform, the management team in WFT Cloud decided to focus on schools and colleges towards imparting their knowledge gained over the years. Following this thought process, a couple of schools were identified wherein, WFT Cloud could run a pilot training program to test the students willingness to learn about mobile platforms and app developments on such platforms. As an outcome of this process, a renowned International School located in Chennai, India was chosen by WFT Cloud to run its pilot training program on “Computing on Mobile Platforms”.
The rapidly expanding technology of Wireless Communication, Cellular Networks, and Satellite Communication services will make information accessible anywhere at any point in time. Most mobile computers will be equipped with a wireless connection to the fixed part of the network. The resulting computing environment, often referred to as mobile or nomadic computing, no longer requires users to maintain a fixed known position in the network and thereby allows almost unrestricted mobility. Modern day communication has facilitated transmission of text, data, voice, video, or multimedia services to mobile devices with freedom of time and with no limitations on location.
With such rapid developments happening in the field of mobile communications and with the advent of sophisticated mobile computing devices like smartphones, kids, even at a young age, are inevitably exposed to such advanced technology. The management team within WFT Cloud’s Educational Division arrived upon a collective decision that, if these kids are molded and directed in the right path, they can grow up to be innovative entrepreneurs and technically savvy individuals whose thoughts can be geared towards the next generation of computing devices – smartphones and tablets. The pilot training program was designed to educate students on the following key points:
1. The need for mobility – laptops, smartphones, etc.
2. Wireless telephony and its transformation
3. Wireless internet and its impact on smart devices
4. Mobile Hardware/OS
5. Understanding the hardware differences between tablets, mobiles and laptops
