Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, March 9 at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is Mobile and Wearable Technology for Learning. 

What has happened to all the energy around mobile and wearable technology for learning? Has the conversation shifted? Is it building momentum behind the new Google Glass efforts and Augmented Reality?  Where is the energy in your work and space with regards to these technologies?

Join us this week on #GuildChat as we discuss the state of mobile and wearable technology and explore the possibility that where the buzz has gone, the usefulness has emerged.
