Fifty (50) experts across the education spectrum will be on hand to give lessons in everything from higher education to technical knowledge to pedagogy, to mobile device management to even creative teaching sessions and photography.
Included in the fifty experts across the education spectrum are some of the top-tier presenters from many national and international conferences such as the International Society for Technology Education (ISTE) and the Mobile Technology in Teacher Education (MiTE) conferences.
With over 1,5000 attendees already registered for the three-day event, sessions will deal with education while others are geared toward the public such as moving on after COVID-19 and learning how to use a MacBook.
For educators looking to renew their teaching licenses, the Mobile Learning Conference is offering up to three continuing education units (CEUs) at a nominal fee.
For those attending 30 sessions of the conference, educators will receive the full allotment of three CEUs. Ten (10) sessions will get a participant one CEU and twenty sessions will get an educator two CEUs.
Each session is slated to run approximately one hour with sessions beginning at 9 a.m. each day and ending around 5 p.m. Multiple sessions are available at the same time for those that want to multitask during the conference.
Educators do not have to fret if they want to experience the entire conference and cannot fit it all into three days, sessions will be archived so participants can go back and have information on-demand.
