Global Mobile Learning ConferenceThe online conference was setup by Theo (thanks and great job:-)), connecting us all using Elluminate Live, is a virtual environment that connects many people in a conference. The software allows you to speak to each other in real-time as well as text messaging, application sharing and a whiteboard – very cool!
The conference showcased m-learning projects at De Rust Futura Academy, Spectrum Primary School and Ramosadi Primary School,
The participants in the GMLC were, of course, De Rust Futura Acadamy and Spectrum Primary School.
