UH Mānoa Professor Brett Oppegaard presents "Mobile Magic: Demystifying Ubiquitous Computing by Deconstructing Mobile Affordances Through the Lens of Technology" on Thursday, February 26, at 11:30 a.m. in Hamilton Library Room 301. This first lecture of the Spring 2015 UH Mānoa Faculty Lecture Series is free and open to the public.

Dr. Oppegaard will illuminate significant changes in the media ecosystem created by networked mobile devices and examine technological advances that have led to these changes. In turn, mobile development can be viewed in many ways as a technological progression, helping us to project the future of communication technologies and plan for how they will shape the next generation of learners, leaders, and lifestyles.
