BENEFITING: iSchool Initiative Corp.
EVENT DATE: Jun 06, 2012
iSchool Initiative is a social enterprise devoted to reforming US education through the system-wide integration of innovative mobile technologies. We are dedicated to inspiring and educating life-long digital learners in the Information Age.
iSchool Initiative is seeking sponsors interested in creating a lasting positive impact on American education by sponsoring our 2012 Digital Learning Revolution Tour.
Instead of a typical conference setting, iSchool Initiative has designed a mobile conference enabling us to reach more schools across the country. We will offer our full range of professional development services: keynotes, workshops, and 1:1 tutoring for educators. Our mobile conference tour will involve a tour bus professionally wrapped with promotional graphics on all sides and outfitted with mobile technologies.
