We’re pleased to announce the first of the three keynote speakers for Mobile Learning Experience 2013, Dr. Tim Clark! Because mobile learning plays a starring role in schools’ Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs, Mobile 2013 has selected Dr. Tim Clark as the opening day’s keynote speaker. He is currently the Coordinator of Instructional Technology for Forsyth County Schools in Georgia, a school district recognized internationally for leadership in instructional technology and its BYOT efforts.
Dr. Tim Clark promotes BYOT for transforming classrooms into learning communities with personalized technology tools. He is the author of the BYOTNetwork blog and has been featured regarding BYOT in NBC News, EdTech Magazine, eSchool News, Scholastic Administrator, THE Journal and many other news outlets. To support the growing interest in BYOT for instruction, Tim also co-moderates a weekly Twitter chat on BYOT (#byotchat) and contributes to that website at byotchat.com.
Tim frequently consults school districts on the implementation of BYOT, and he presents and conducts workshops throughout the United States on BYOT, Virtual Worlds, Digital Age Learning, Mobile Learning, Social Media, and Online Safety for organizations such as the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), the K12 Education Congress, and the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI). He is a member of the Georgia K12 CTO Council, serves on the GA Department of Education Online Advisory Board, and is the Vice Chair of the Board of Directors for the Association of Virtual World Educators.
Tim earned his Doctor of Education in Leadership for Learning with a concentration in Instructional Technology, and his research and dissertation focused on designing online learning communities for elementary students. He has been an educator for 25 years and has taught all grade levels, ESL, and gifted learners. Throughout his career, he has been a vocal advocate for the implementation of instructional technology in order to increase achievement and motivation, to encourage collaboration, to facilitate critical thinking, and to construct innovative learning environments.
