Mobile Learning Using the iPod Touch – Free Online Panel

MOBICIPNEWS on November 17, 2010

Thousand Oaks, CA - Mobicip.com, the leading Internet safety and parental control service for mobile devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, is participating in the online 2010 Global Education Conference. Suren Ramasubbu, CEO and co-founder of Mobicip, is leading a panel on “Mobile Learning Using the iPod Touch – In Hindsight” with co-panelists Susan Wells, Phil Hardin, and Jennifer Wivagg on Friday, November 19th, 2010 at 2:00 PM (GMT). The ecosystem of applications, device management, and wireless connectivity is making the deployment of iPod Touches in the classroom popular. The panelists will discuss how their programs evolved from concept to reality and how Mobicip’s content filtering service helped them reach that reality.  They will also cover acceptable use policy, security and deployment management, and anecdotal evidence of the benefits derived by students participating in the program.

The Global Education Conference is a platform for ways in which technology can enable learning anywhere and everywhere.  This year is the first online Global Education Conference and both the content and presenters are worth watching for educators and those involved with educational technology. The conference is a collaborative and worldwide community effort to significantly increase opportunities for globally connecting education activities and initiatives. The entire conference (November 15 - 19, 2010) is online and is free and sessions will be held in multiple time zones focusing on teachers, students, curriculum, policy and leadership and global issues.

Susan Wells, principal at Culbreth Middle School, set the goal to put an iPod Touch in every child's hand at their school in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Wells mentioned in a recent iEAR.org podcast that the “Mobicip application has helped her reach her goal.” Mobicip’s Internet safety and parental control service allows educators to embrace new technology while ensuring a safe learning and secure learning environment.

Mobicip.com’s intelligent real-time content filtering technology allows parents to rest assured that their mobile kids are using the Internet sans the sites that parents don’t want them to be on.  Mobicip's co-founder and CEO (a father of two), Suren Ramasubbu, Founder and CEO of Mobicip, decided to implement Internet filtering for mobile devices with a view to enable mobile learning anytime anywhere.

"Mobicip.com was launched with a vision to serve the needs of mobile learning in K-12 education. We have been amazed by the rapid adoption of the iPod Touch in schools, and more so by the innovative uses that educators have come up with for the device and applications like Mobicip," says Ramasubbu. "It is a sign of the times to see mobile learning as a session topic at the conference and even more a sign of the times that the conference is online!”

There is no formal registration required for the Global Education Conference, as all the sessions will be open and public, broadcasted live using the Elluminate platform, and available in recorded formats afterward.  All attendees need to do is CLICK HERE to enter the Elluminate session room, open one hour before every session.
