It is not a question of if a company should have a BYOD policy. People are already using their own devices. Companies need to respond with the right policies. Some good points here.
I am so honored to be part of such a fantastic conference and to work with such a great group of people at the Guild. As Program Chair it is my job to take a look at what is needed to design, develop and deploy learning content in today’s mobile landscape. The Guild team and I have been working hard over the past few months to build a great program for mLearnCon 2013. With the addition of mLearning DevCon to the conference it allows us to focus in the “how to” side of the conference. DevCon will focus on building the technical skills and learning the tools needed for developing & deploying learning via mobile devices. Today’s technology options are requiring us to acquire new skills, tools and approaches. As learning and development professionals we need to be ready and this conference is designed to get you there.
Hope you will join us this year!
I ran across this doing some research. This is a good place to start if you would like to know more about Git is all about. Git – Git Basics.
Also here is a presentation by Scott Chacon of GitHub
I just found this video on BYOD for K-12 by Cisco. This supports my sons post earlier today. No I did not nudge him to write that blog. It surprised me when his post popped up on my Google+ timeline
When he got home I asked him about it. He said he had been thinking about it for awhile and just wrote the blog. BTW he also told me he wrote and published it from his smartphone in his Advisory class. Nice!

My conversation with Shay Howe of Groupon
These are exciting times in the learning and development space. We are in a huge technology growth period right now. Technologies like mobile, cloud and the adaptation of social & informal learning for the enterprise are at the core of the opportunities in front of us. I think most of us would agree that these technologies are disruptive or at least they should be. It is true that not all organizations adapt new technologies at the same time. My friend Dr. Gary Woodill owner of i5 Research and the author of The Mobile Learning Edge illustrates this in his technology life-cycle curve. DevLearn has always been a great place to learn and have conversations about the edge of learning. It is also a great event to learn how early adopters are actually leveraging these new technologies and learn from them. I have identified several thought leaders who are talking about what is really happening in learning today to interview.
I am looking forward to sitting down at talking with these experts and sharing them with you as I always do. One of these really smart people is Brent Schlenker an expert in learning technology. Here is a Guild video by Brent on Designing For All Technologies.
Here is a partial list of the interviews I am conducting this year at DevLearn.
Keep an eye out for these great conversations and blog posts from DevLearn 2012

Thank you, Aaron Silvers for your inspiration of the app Photo Circle I am always learning something from you!
Thank you, Kody at the sun-river Nature Center. I loved your use of mobile technology for learning in the use of the app iBird. Hope to stop in and visit in December.

I have the privileged of meeting Dr. Bill Rankin of ACU at mLearnCOn 2011 and hearing him speak as part of a discussion panel. I love Dr. Rankins explanation below of how, throughout history, learning has changed with technology all the way to mobile.
I am looking forward to speaking at this Online Forum on December 6th & 7th hosted by the eLearning Guild. It is a topic that I really enjoy talking about and that is technology based learning. In this case its mobile technology. Mobile technology offers new ways to reach our learners. I have been involved in many conversations with thought leaders on subject of how mobile is transforming how we reach the learner. Mobile opens up possibilities that we have never had before. It is up to us to decide how we are going to embrace these opportunities and leverage them to create better learning.
Come join in the discussions!
