Edutxt and Cy-nap are hosting a one day conference 27th March at Leeds University focussing on the uses of SMS in the Education sector in the UK. “The speakers are all desktop SMS text messaging users from the education community, and they will be sharing their experiences and showing examples of how mobile messaging has made a difference from recruitment through to student retention and achievement. Speakers include Andy Black - a well known authority on new technology for e-learning from BECTA and Ray Lawrence - howtomoodle UK.”
The conference is designed as a showcase for creative uses of SMS, and of course to promote the services of the conference organisers, but it seems it genuinely will offer an insight to those who have yet to adopt and develop a mobile strategy in education.
