Watch this Google Hangout with Mike Lee the Co-Founder of edshelf, and Felix Jacomino from Miami Device. During this hangout, we talked about the Miami Device conference and the #SaveEdShelf Kickstarter campaign. There’s surprises in this video you don’t want to miss.
edshelf announced July 2, 2014 they had to shut down their service at the end of July; in a not so strange turn of events (through the power of social media) educators started using the #saveedshelf hashtag to prevent edshelf from going under. I would personally love to see them succeed. Their service has helped thousands of educators discover apps, software and edtech resources currently being used in their classroom. I know Mike is deeply committed to the use of technology in education and he has a personal connection with educators.
But wait there’s more… my friend Felix surprised both Mike and I during the hangout, by announcing that Miami Device will donate $50 to edshelf if the promo code “edshelf” is used while registering for the conference. Also, don’t forget you still have time to enter the contest. Yes… you too can attend Miami Device for FREE! Please click this link and fill out the Miami Device – Mobile Learning Event Google Form for the opportunity to win a Miami Device Registration and 1 Hotel Night. Time is of the essence here as the contest deadline is August 17, 2014. I would also like to point out that Miami Device is running a gofundme campaign with the goal of raising money to sponsor attendance for 11 educators.
I look forward to seeing all of you at Miami Device in the fall… You don’t want to miss it! There’s an awesome lineup of presenters and this will be a great learning opportunity for professional growth. Thanks in advance for your continued support.
