Tonight's "back-to-school" presentation will feature two speakers to share facts and opinions on what works (or not) for mobile devices in education.

To start us off, Thor Prichard will share slides about device adoption data, implementation trends and use case examples before sharing advice about what to do (and not do) when building an app for schools.

Following him will be Sean Williams, who will walk through how different devices are used at different grade levels, why Google ChromeBooks have become so popular in education, explain the constraints in education (power, wifi coverage, bandwidth, student data privacy) and give a wishlist of what educators wish app developers would build for education.
