Without commercial or agency bias, anybody is free to nominate themselves or those individuals or organisations who they believe have innovated to improve learning, teaching or training using mobile computing technologies. A panel of independent judges produce a shortlist of finalists from these nominations, then the winners are decided by public vote using non-premium rate SMS.

Winners are announced at a free to attend party for 600 people on Monday 5th October.

This is your opportunity to celebrate your colleagues and the fast paced innovation happening in this area.

Please nominate here


Submission deadline: July 10th

A very successful part of our free Handheld Learning Festival day where 5 teams or individuals aged 6-16 are selected to present their innovative learning techniques or projects to an audience of up to 100 delegates and a panel of friendly judges.

A terrific way of involving learners in the conference whilst providing the opportunity to share some of their experiences and knowledge of the technologies that are already embedded in their everyday lives. All participants receive gifts with the winning presentation being given the opportunity to present to the main conference the following day.

If you know of young learners that are doing something wonderfully new and innovative then please encourage them to make a submission and get involved, it is entirely free and great fun.
