Keynote: Preparing Students for a Mobile Workforce

How do we help our students learn today and prepare them for a rapidly changing world? Mobile technology is transforming the way we learn and work. It also empowers every individual – and learner – to create amazing things and make a difference in the world. Providing students digital literacy and fluency with mobile technology is essential to career success. To do this we need to raise the bar for what’s expected, and what’s possible, for learning with technology.
