The Wireless Education Technology Conference advisory board and Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), as part of its Wireless ReachTM initiative, today announced details regarding the Wireless EdTech Conference 2010. The conference, scheduled for October 29, 2010 at the Westin City Center in Washington, D.C., features more than 20 speakers and leaders in business, academia and government who will come together to address the use of mobile technology in advancing 21st century education.

Dr. Chris Dede, Timothy E. Wirth Professor in Learning Technologies for the Graduate School of Education at Harvard University, will open the conference, which includes several prominent speakers who will discuss the role of wireless technology in education. Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, chairman and chief executive officer of Qualcomm, will deliver the keynote address, followed by an interview conducted by John Harris, Editor-in-Chief of POLITICO with Julius Genachowski, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, regarding the importance of broadband and mobile technology to the future of education. The conference agenda includes breakout sessions in which participants will develop specific action plans for increasing the role of technology in the classroom.

Other speakers include Kwasi Asare, associate director of the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Education Technology; Dr. Daniel C. Edelson, vice president for Education at the National Geographic Society Education Foundation; and Robert M. Lippincott, senior vice president of Education at the Public Broadcasting System.

“The United States has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reform education in a way that will truly prepare our students to compete in the global economy,” said Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, chairman and chief executive officer of Qualcomm. “Mobile technology has a critical role to play in this effort by equipping students and teachers with 24/7 access to learning communities and information. Qualcomm is pleased to join a group of distinguished leaders to explore mobile learning at Wireless EdTech 2010.”

Another highlight of the conference will be the release of a major report on mobile learning by Project Tomorrow, a national education nonprofit organization, that draws on data compiled from over 370,000 K-12 students, parents, teachers and administrators.

The conference will address key cross-functional topics, such as:

• Differences between mobile learning and existing one laptop per child programs;
• Advantages of extending learning beyond the four walls of a classroom and traditional school hours to fully leverage 24/7 connectivity;
• Platforms needed to support new methods of teaching and styles of learning;
• Network and infrastructure issues and options as they relate to cloud computing and device evolution;
• Methods for breaking down silos and fostering collaboration between stakeholders; and
• Means of leveraging the large ecosystem of mobile devices and applications to lower implementation costs and provide schools with access to state-of-the-art technology.
