Using RFID in the Classroom to Teach Information Systems Principles

This paper describes a strategy for using an inexpensive RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) reader and tags in the classroom to teach a variety of basic principles of information technology to students taking an introductory Management Information Systems (MIS) course. A "show and tell" RFID reader hardware and software demonstration is intended to generate student interest and drive an interactive discussion about the uses and limitations of RFID tags. This sets the stage for a short PowerPoint slide presentation followed by a case study relating to the use of RFID to achieve competitive advantage in supply chain management.
