Leadership for Mobile Learning

CoSN's LML initiative helps educational leaders overcome the barriers and develop, plan, implement, and manage policies and best practices to effectively enable mobile learning. Mobile learning is growing exponentially but at a critical juncture; we need to work to identify district policies that hinder or aid its growth. 

CoSN is grateful to the following sponsors for their support of this initiative: Amplify, BestBuy, Blackboard, C. Blohm & Associates, Google, HP, Juniper Networks, Kajeet, Lenovo, Lightspeed Systems, Qualcomm, and Sprint.
