Understanding the performance of voting technologies in the United States using scientific methods is a critical part of the policy process that tries to improve voting in America. Previous researches conducted have helped shape national and state policy in technology upgrades. Professor Miller suggests that each state may in fact deviate from the national average, and that some technologies might be most appropriate for particular states. Punch cards might work well in Pennsylvania; optical scanning might work poorly in Wyoming.
Many researchers see the potential of wireless mobile learning devices to achieve large-scale impact on learning because of portability, low cost, and communications features. This paper published by Blackwell Publishing explains that the potential of wireless mobile learning devices to achieve large-scale impact on learning because of portability, low cost, and communications features. This enthusiasm is shared but the lessons drawn from three well-documented uses of connected handheld devices in education lead towards challenges ahead. Wireless, mobile learning is an imprecise description of what it takes to connect learners and their devices together in a productive manner.
