I'm very excited to inform our community there is an event coming up in our own backyard (San Antonio, actually) October 11, 2013! Have you heard about the Central Texas Learning and Technology Summit? It's all about mobile learning. Experts are coming in from across the country. (Check the speaker bios below.)
It will be a wonderful day to hear about the latest developments, to connect with other learning professionals, and to hear about what is going on "in the trenches."
Learning and development professionals must frequently navigate new waters as emerging tools, technology and learning models impact how training is delivered. Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to chart a course through the transition from instructor-led to web-based training?
Good news! The E-Learning Council is happy to announce Great Voyages, a series of presentations designed to do just that. This series includes:
My heartfelt thanks to all who participated in this week's 2013 E-Learning Symposium and workshops. The evaluations are showing very high marks so far. Thank-you, speakers for informing, engaging and spurring us on!
This was my first time to serve the E-Learning Council in this capacity and it was simply wonderful to have such a talented team behind the scenes contributing to the event's success. I'm grateful beyond words.
As mentioned at the event, it is my deep hope that as we move forward, the E-Learning Council's face to face events become like punctuation in an ongoing collaborative conversation.
I want to know what is going on out in the trenches. What was presented at the conference or workshop that you're going to try out? Please let us know how it's going. I want to hear about your challenges and successes. Did you find a "running partner" to explore a new topic or are looking for someone else to collaborate with? Let's keep the conversation going!
|The advent and burgeoning sophistication of mobile technologies has opened a space for passive learning to take place anywhere, any time. Consider your commute time, where radio has long been our companion. Mobile apps like Swell fly in the face of traditional, terrestrial radio by allowing the user to listen to content they want to hear. New developments in technology that integrate the mobile experience into your car (smart device, auxiliary cables, Bluetooth device pairing) make these apps viable.|
