    I’m looking forward to this virtual forum. It is an important topic to probe, so that technology is used more effectively both in and out the classroom.

  2. A great forum that I’m sure will touch on Education Trends like Work Group Collaboration, Mobility, blended learning with online courses, cloud-based learning applications and Connected Learning.

    Will be any discussion on leveraging social media content as a learning tool?
