(MINNEAPOLIS, MN) June 22, 2016 – During ISTE 2016 in Denver, PR with Panache! will host a book signing by Carl Hooker, the Director of Innovation and Digital Learning at Eanes ISD (TX) and the founder of iPadpalooza.
On Monday, June 27, Hooker will sign copies of Mobile Learning Mindset: The District Leader’s Guide to Implementation and Mobile Learning Mindset: The Principal’s Guide to Implementation. The books are part of the six-volume Mobile Learning Mindset series, which offers practical knowledge and strategies for successful implementation of K-12 BYOD programs and 1:1 initiatives.
“These books are my way of sharing tips and tools to a successful mobile device implementation as well as pitfalls to avoid, and I’m looking forward to sharing them in person at ISTE,” said Hooker, who has been named PR with Panache! Thought Leader of the Year, Tech & Learning magazine’s 2014 Leader of the Year, and an Apple Distinguished Educator. “I hope that the Mobile Learning Mindset series can give some practical guidance to my colleagues who are navigating this momentous shift in the way we teach.”
The event, sponsored by myON, will take place from 5–6 PM at PRP’s Storytelling Suite at The Corner Office Restaurant and Martini Bar (1401 Curtis Street, Denver) EXO U, well known supporter of both Hooker’s work and mobile learning, is a contributing sponsor for the event.
“We are proud to sponsor Carl’s signing,” said Todd Brekhus, the president of myON. “As an educator, he is not only devoted to his students, but he has dedicated himself to sharing what he himself has learned, whether through his iPadpalooza learning festival or through his series of books. He is a true leader in education.”
