Please join us Wednesday, September 18, 2013 from 10:30 – 11:30 am (CT) for the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, South Central Region’s (NN/LM SCR’s) free monthly webinar, SCR CONNECTions.
This month’s topic is Mobile Devices and Apps in Education presented by guest speaker Rebecca K. Miller, College Librarian for Science, Life Sciences, and Engineering at Virginia Tech University.

She is currently pursuing a secondary master of arts degree in instructional design and technology from Virginia Tech. Rebecca is also the co-author of the popular book Tablet Computers in the Academic Library as well as the forthcoming title Introduction: Rethinking Reference and Instruction with Tablets.
Mobile devices are changing how library users access information and applications (apps) for mobile devices are being released at a rapid rate. Rebecca will address how mobile technologies and apps can be implemented in library and educational settings. Rebecca will provide an overview for using apps for teaching and provide information about how to assess apps for use in education.
