Piecing Together the Puzzle of Mobile Innovations in Education


I am excited about October’s Wireless EdTech Conference in Washington, D.C.
This conference offers a unique opportunity to put the “puzzle” together of realizing an effective mobile wireless infrastructure for education.

Complementing the “classic” resources of workstations, laptops, and wires with the emerging “ecology” of smartphones, e-readers, smartbooks, handheld gaming platforms and similar broadband devices is not a simple task.

But accomplishing this “blended” infrastructure is vital to achieving in education the many benefits we have seen in other sectors of society, such as the transformation of knowledge work due to anyplace, anytime access.

The U.S. Department of Education’s 2010 National Educational Technology Plan
delineates an exciting vision of learning, assessment and teaching transformed to meet the needs of 21st century society.

The Technical Working Group for the plan discussed how to actualize this vision and saw ubiquitous mobile, wireless devices as a crucial part of the necessary conditions for success.

Richly linking learning inside and outside of classrooms
, building on the mobile Web that students find so exciting and involving parents, informal educators, and community members in aiding teachers are all important frontiers for 21st century education.

But the “puzzle” of actualizing the mobile wireless infrastructure is difficult because many groups that typically work in isolation from each other now must collaborate closely.

Teachers, faculty, educational leaders, students, parents, informal educators, community, vendors (in curriculum, professional development, assessment, devices and networking), funders and policymakers must all act in ways that overcome challenges and empower other stakeholders to contribute their part of the vision.

A vital first step is bringing these various groups to the table to initiate discussions about opportunities and challenges, barriers to collaboration and complementary initiatives.

The 2010 Wireless EdTech Conference offers this initial step and I am happy for the opportunity to incite the discussion with the various groups that will convene to realize the full power of mobile wireless devices for learning!

I hope you will join us and, if you cannot, I hope you will keep in close touch with the initiatives and collaborations that flow from this event.

“Anything you can do on a computer, you will soon do on your mobile device. Looking ahead, your phone will be like your digital sixth sense. It will learn what you like, and as you walk down the street, it will display ‘cyber signs’ with information and offers based on your preferences. Qualcomm is giving you personal access to your own digital world.”

Dr. Paul E. Jacobs,
Chief Executive Officer of Qualcomm

Dr. Paul E. Jacobs is chairman of Qualcomm’s board of directors and the Company’s chief executive officer.
A leader in the field of mobile communications for nearly two decades and a key architect of Qualcomm’s strategic vision, Dr. Jacobs’ responsibilities include leadership and oversight of all the Company’s initiatives and operations.

Through his technology innovations and advocacy, Dr. Jacobs spearheaded Qualcomm’s efforts to develop and commercialize mobile technology breakthroughs that have contributed significantly to the growth of both the Company and the industry.

Important developments which began under Dr. Jacobs include:
- the first Palm OS®-based smartphone;
- inclusion of GPS capabilities in mobile phones (which led to the acquisition of SnapTrack™ and Qualcomm's development of gpsOne™ position-location technology);
- the Brew® system, which enables over-the-air downloading of applications using digital signatures to ensure the integrity of the content;
- the business ecosystem that enables Brew developers to engage operators globally and receive payment for their applications;
- MediaFLO™ technology for mobile TV;
- mirasol®, an advanced reflective display technology.

Following the completion of his Ph.D. in 1989 and a year as a post-doctoral researcher at a French government lab in Toulouse, Dr. Jacobs joined the Company fulltime in 1990 as a development engineer leading the mobile phone digital signal processor software team.

Five years later, Dr. Jacobs became vice president and general manager of the combined handset and integrated circuit division, which was subsequently divided into Qualcomm Consumer Products (QCP) and Qualcomm CDMA Technologies, respectively.

In 1996, Dr. Jacobs was named senior vice president of the Company and in 1997, president of QCP.
Under Dr. Jacobs, QCP (prior to its sale to Kyocera Wireless in 2000) moved into the No. 2 CDMA handset supplier position in the U.S.

In 2000, Dr. Jacobs was named executive vice president of Qualcomm and in 2001, group president of Qualcomm Wireless & Internet (QWI), where he oversaw Qualcomm Technology Licensing, Qualcomm Internet Services, MediaFLO USA Inc. (now FLO TV) and MediaFLO technology development, Qualcomm MEMS Technologies, Qualcomm Enterprise Services (formerly Qualcomm Wireless Business Solutions), Qualcomm Government Technologies and Qualcomm Technology & Ventures.

As Qualcomm executive vice president, he was also responsible for administering the Company's corporate marketing functions and standards organization.

Dr. Jacobs became CEO in July 2005 and was appointed Chairman in 2009.

As an innovative leader of a broad range of technical teams within Qualcomm, Dr. Jacobs has been granted more than 35 patents for his inventions in the areas of wireless technology and devices.

Dr. Jacobs chairs the World Economic Forum’s Future of Mobile Communications council, serves on the Board of Directors for A123Systems, and is a member of the Advisory Board of the University of California, Berkeley, College of Engineering; the Advisory Board of University of California, San Diego, Jacobs School of Engineering; and the Young President's Organization.

Dr. Jacobs received his bachelor's (1984) and master's (1986) degrees as well as his doctorate (1989) in electrical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, and subsequently endowed the Paul and Stacy Jacobs Distinguished Professor of Engineering chair at the school.

He is a member of the Phi Beta Kappa, Eta Kappa Nu and Tau Beta Pi honor societies.
