MOBICIPNEWS on July 21, 2011

Thousand Oaks, CA - Mobicip.com, the leading Internet safety and parental control service for mobile devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, is sponsoring the Virginia Society for Technology in Education (VSTE) Summer Mobile Learning Events.  As part of VSTE’s continuing focus on mobile learning, VSTE will be hosting mobile learning conferences throughout the month of July. VSTE Summer Mobile Learning Conferences are about “new Teaching” and “new Learning”.  Mobicip, an organization dedicated to enabling students to learn on the mobile web, is supporting this educational conference to further the causes that mobile learning empowers like digital equity and always-on access to learning.

“The interactive education that VSTE has pulled together really embodies the future of education – mobile education” says Suren Ramasubbu, Founder and CEO of Mobicip.com.  “The keynote speakers, the participatory learning games and the lessons about integrating technology into the classroom make this summer mobile learning conference series a window into the breadth and depth of the experiments in mobile learning today.”

VSTE Executive Director, Karen Richardson summarized the mobile education focus: “We are mostly emphasizing the instructional focus of these events: educators talking to other educators about how they are using mobile technologies. You'll notice some sessions on Universal Design for Learning as well as sessions on managing student use and getting organized. Mobile learning is very new in Virginia and people are interested in all aspects of it.  We are trying to meet that interest and need.”

All events are just $60 for a day of learning with continental breakfast and lunch provided. Register for the summer learning events here: http://www.vste.org/index/learn/learning_events/summer_2011
