Ring! Ring! Calling all mobile techies: The Float Mobile Learning Symposium 2012 is right around the corner. The Symposium, an official partner event coinciding with Chicago’s Techweek, will be held from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Monday, June 25 at start-up incubator 1871 at the Merchandise Mart – just floors above Techweek activities.

Float’s Symposium will bring together today’s thought leaders to explore all topics related to mobile learning strategy, design and development. It’s a day dedicated to all things mobile!

This year's all-star speaker lineup includes:

  • Shay Howe, user interface engineer at Groupon
  • Steven Hoober, author of “Designing Mobile Interfaces”
  • Aaron Silvers, chief learning officer at Problem Solutions
  • Kris Rockwell, CEO of Hybrid Games and ImpactGames

The Symposium, sponsored by yours truly, Walker Sands Communications, will feature a morning session on business and strategy, afternoon session targeting designers and developers and networking and cocktail hour to wrap up an exciting day of mobile learning.

Last year, Bradley University hosted the first-ever Float Mobile Learning Symposium in Peoria, Ill. More than 100 people attended from higher educational institutions, small businesses and corporations including State Farm Insurance, Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Western Illinois University, U.S. Cellular, and more.
