To support the education on new ways of teaching and learning, internet
safety service Mobicip.com sponsors July Mobile Learning Conference

Thousand Oaks, CA, July 27, 2011 -- Mobicip.com, the leading Internet
safety and parental control service for mobile devices like the iPhone,
iPod Touch and iPad, is sponsoring the Virginia Society for Technology in
Education (VSTE) Summer Mobile Learning Events. As part of VSTE’s
continuing focus on mobile learning, VSTE will be hosting mobile learning
conferences throughout the month of July. VSTE Summer Mobile Learning
Conferences are about “new Teaching” and “new Learning”. Mobicip, an
organization dedicated to enabling students to learn on the mobile web,
is supporting this educational conference to further the causes that
mobile learning empowers like digital equity and always-on access to
learning.

“The interactive education that VSTE has pulled together really embodies
the future of education – mobile education” says Suren Ramasubbu, Founder
and CEO of Mobicip.com. “The keynote speakers, the participatory
learning games and the lessons about integrating technology into the
classroom make this summer mobile learning conference series a window
into the breadth and depth of the experiments in mobile learning today.”

VSTE Executive Director, Karen Richardson summarized the mobile education
focus: “We are mostly emphasizing the instructional focus of these
events: educators talking to other educators about how they are using
mobile technologies. You'll notice some sessions on Universal Design for
Learning as well as sessions on managing student use and getting
organized. Mobile learning is very new in Virginia and people are
interested in all aspects of it. We are trying to meet that interest and
need.”

All events are just $60 for a day of learning with continental breakfast
and lunch provided. Register for the summer learning events here:
