Title: Use Mobicip to Create a "Truly" Mobile Learning Environment
(Monday June 27th @ 6:00 pm)

Description: Mobile devices like the iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone are increasingly being adopted as the mobile learning device of choice by K-12 schools. Most mobile learning initiatives today restrict the use of the mobile device to the classroom or school. Is this truly mobile learning? Isn't anytime anywhere access the goal? The biggest barrier is that your network is filtered, but what about unsecured hotspots accessed from school or an off-campus or home network? Well, there is an app for that and it can make your students truly mobile. In this session, we will see how to create a safe, secure and educational Internet experience for your students on these always-on devices that can be used anytime, anywhere.

Session 19 at 6:00 - 6:30 pm, Elluminate Link:
