Obama 08 Where did the summer go? It definitely was a busy one starting with one granddaughter’s wedding and finishing with a new granddaughter born to our youngest and her husband. I definitely will try now to be more regular in updates to the mLearnopedia blog.

The Fall “Conference Season” has already begun with a Mobile Learning in Higher Education webinar for Academic Impressions. This month I will be attending two conferences in Italy and back in time for Elliot Masie’s Learning 2008 in Orlando where I am involved in four sessions. Check out the conference schedule and mobile sessions at http://masie.mobi .
Next month is DevLearn for the eLearning Guild in San Jose where I am involved in an all day pre-session workshop and an overview session. This year they are doing an exciting experiment with QR codes .

Looking forward, after the Holidays, I will be doing hands on sessions for ASTD TechKnowledge in Las Vegas in January and coordinating a mobile learning tools Shoot-Out at Training 2009 in Atlanta in February.

If you are attending any of these conferences and want to connect, just let me know.

Speaking of QR codes, Samsung recently announced that they are preloading the ScanLife mobile 2D barcode application on their camera phones. There are also several barcode readers for the iPhone that are easy to install.

For more on the future with tagging, check out the tonshidot demo .

The biggest mobile learning news so far this Fall has been that of the schools that are deploying iPhones to their students. Abilene Christian University has an interesting video available .

Lost in the buzz about the iPhone initiatives is Tec de Monterrey in Mexico who deployed 1,300 Blackberry 3Gs to students to access courses, audio conferences, videos, check grades and communicate with teachers and fellow students.

T-Mobile, HTC and Google announced the first Android phone. Check out some winning Google Android apps here .

Putting politics aside, if you are interested in mobile learning or mobile performance, you need to check out the free app, Obama 08 for the iPhone . They have integrated location information, communications, updates, media and resources.
