Handheld Learning Presentation Proposals Due Soon!!

handheldlearning 2008

On Friday, May 30, to be exact. I’m still working on mine, how about you?

So far, all indications are that Handheld Learning 2008 is going to be the best handheld learning conference yet. The list of keynotes is first-class, and it’s worth attending the conference just to see them. However, I’m mostly looking forward to see what will happen when 1,000 people or so all have access to the same device (a Nintendo DS) for the duration of the conference.

You can register for the conference here.

 Submit your presentation proposals here.

Ubiquitous Thoughts is Two!

Yes, it’s hard to imagine that what started out as an experiment is now a two-year-old blog. The writing has somewhat dwindled as of late, and that’s because I’ve been doing a lot of writing for other purposes. In any event, I’m planning on continuing to blog, even if it is in spurts. I’m sure I’ll never be as prolific as some of the other ed tech and/or mobile bloggers out there, but it has been a fun ride nonetheless.

Doodle 4 Google

I’ve always been fascinated by the Google Doodles that’ll show up on the Google home page on a regular basis. Today, the winner of the Doodle 4 Google contest is being shown. I think it’s pretty cool that Google had this contest.

To learn more about Google’s Doodles, you can learn about Google’s doodler, Dennis Hwang, here (how cool a job is that!). And if you want to see more examples of Google’s popular images, a quick web search (yes, using Google) will bring up plenty of them.

And of course, congratulations to Grace Moon, the winner, as well as all of the other finalists and participants. There were lots and lots of creative and interesting entries.
