Learning while mobile

Now in its third year the Handheld Learning Conference and Exhibition has established itself as the signature event for those interested in opportunities presented by “always-on” learning. Drawing together a highly influential audience of opinion formers, policy makers and practitioners, the event is supported by Becta with endorsement from DCSF, e-Learning Foundation and the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust.

Renowned for the quality of its speakers, stimulating conference sessions and engaging networking opportunities; additional space has been made available this year for more in-depth breakout sessions as well as sessions for those new to the field.

Last year over 600 delegates, 70 speakers and 20 exhibitors descended on Westminster to participate in what has become one of the world’s largest conferences for mobility in learning. Government policy and decision makers, academics, practitioners, developers, publishers and manufacturers; those experienced in the use of mobile technologies and those new to it came to share and expand knowledge of how the use of mobile and pervasive technologies will lead to a positive, transformational change for teaching and learning.

This year Jim Knight, UK Minister for Schools and Learners, will be opening the conference and Stephen Crowne, Chief Executive for Becta, will be presenting the opening keynote followed by a further keynote from visionary writer Marc Prensky.
