Feed Forward Webinar: October 19, 2010 at 3:15 pm
Published:October 19, 2010
As you are aware, each year MLTI updates and revises the software and configurations (aka the image) on the MLTI devices. This process takes over half of the year to prepare, engineer, and test before it is delivered to your schools. Today's Feed Forward webinar, MLTI Image Discussion, is designed for teachers and tech leads to actively participate in planning next years image. Jonathan Carr, Apple Engineer, will be facilitating this webinar and is seeking your feedback on the software image so work can begin for next year.
We encourage participation from teachers, librarians, administrators, and technology staff. Some topics may be technical in nature, but the goal is to provide a software image that supports teaching and learning, so please encourage teachers to participate in the conversation on the phone or online.
This webinar will begin at 3:15 pm on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 (today!).
