We’ll meet at 8 PM in VSTE’s Adobe Connect Room. Free and open to all.

VSTE’s Mobile Learning Special Interest Group is dedicated to learning with mobile technologies.

The Mobile Learning SIG elected its first officers at the December 2011 meeting:

Camilla Gagliolo, President
Katie Neville, Vice President
Bea Cantor, Secretary

We’ve thought of a few reasons why you may want to join us with your membership:

1. A SIG is a great opportunity to network with other innovative educators in Virginia.
2. This SIG will be organizing the most helpful information for educators thinking about purchasing decisions of mobile technologies for their school(s).
3. This SIG will be sharing success stories, whether it’s funding solutions, best-in-class apps, or deployment solutions.
4. This SIG will help you advocate for the use of mobile technologies, stay on top of trends, and learn from the experience of others.
5. SIG membership is new and hip. Who doesn’t want to be part in the in-crowd? Seriously, though, get access to exclusive SIG information and communiqu├ęs that you will be sure to find informative, authentic, and valuable.

Best of all, becoming a member of the VSTE Mobile Learning SIG is free and easy.  Just request to join the Edmodo group.

There are lots of ways to get involved: from sharing resources to posting to the Twitter account and more.  Let us know what you might like to do by completing our interest survey
