Mobile devices are everywhere – but how effective are they as learning devices? Brent Schlenker, fresh from the DevLearn 2011 conference in Las Vegas, will answer this question and many more, at the quarterly STC Phoenix chapter meeting. What better way to celebrate Arizona’s Tech. Comm. Week than with your fellow technical communicators! Bring your questions and join the discussion on Thursday, November 10! (Please note this is a date change.)
We’ll also be voting on the new chapter bylaws, which include a provision for student members to vote in future elections. Please plan to attend the meeting if you would like to see this provision approved.
