In just a few days, higher education technologists, educators, and industry partners will converge upon Denver for the EDUCAUSE 2012 Annual Conference.  Topics discussed during this year’s event are sure to include all the platforms, applications, and processes that can now be hosted and operated in the cloud – as well as how advances in mobile networks and devices continue to revolutionize the ways we work, teach, and learn in higher ed.

AT&T is proud to be a bronze partner of this year’s conference, and we too will be focusing on ways we can help mobilize and virtualize education.  Join us in booth #915, as we share our approaches for:

  • Unifying campus communications and collaboration for administrators, faculty, & students
  • Cloud-based computing, storage, and applications
  • Mobile learning and mobile device management
  • Campus safety and alerting
  • On-campus wireless network enhancement

On Wednesday afternoon, join me as I visit with leaders from the Seton Hall Center for Mobile Research and Innovation to learn how the University recently collaborated with corporations such as AT&T, Microsoft, and Nokia to expand their existing m-learning program – bucking the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend to bring a smartphone to every freshman on campus.

Join our discussion:

Seton Hall Takes Education Innovation to a New Level with Mobile Technology
Wednesday, November 7th
3:40PM – 4:30PM
Room 407

We also plan to have a little hands-on action during the show to encourage “hands off” mobile devices while driving…

Stop by and take part in our interactive texting-while-driving simulator.  Hear first-hand the stories behind AT&T’s Texting and Driving: It Can Wait campaign.

Take the pledge, and help us spread the message at EDUCAUSE and on your campus!

Better yet: download the AT&T DriveMode™ application to your Android or BlackBerry mobile device to help curb the urge to text while driving.

I wish everyone safe travels on their journey to the Mile High City, and look forward to visiting with many of you during this year’s event!
