The mission of this chapter is to explore ways in which mobile computing via the employment of Tablet PCs can assist the human computer interaction in the design and project development process and thereby enhance learning. We follow the process of ethnographic action research and report on the learning, observations, and communications of students in a multimedia program who were given the use of a Tablet PC for their second year of their degree. We discuss the educational design and customized agent software developed for this project and draw conclusions for wireless networks, and benefits and issues involved in enabling mobile computing and encouraging group dynamics among students.
