Intergalactic Mobile Learning Center
Mobile technologies are ramping up, worldwide, faster than any other technology in human record. There are 1.6 billion TV sets and 5.2 billion mobile phones! While K-12 education missed the desktop computer revolution, the Internet revolution, and the laptop computer revolution, it is not going to miss the mobile technologies revolution!!! We predict that by 2017 every child in every classroom in every school in the U.S. will be using a mobile learning device (aka smartphone, mobile tablet) 24/7 for curricular purposes. You can take that prediction to the bank!
To support the transformation of K-12, we have formed the Intergalactic Mobile Learning Center! The IMLC provides:

Enabling Synchronous Collaboration to Support Social Learning!
The Collabrify apps support learners, co-located or not, each on her or his own device – any computing device – working together, in real-time, co-creating or co-editing a document – while talking full-tilt!
FIRST TIMERS to the Collabrify Apps: Please read a short tutorial here.
We gratefully acknowledge that the development of the Collabrify Suite of Apps has been supported by the Lucas Educational Foundation.
