Apple co-founder to speak at Connected event

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak
Abilene Christian University’s upcoming international mobile-learning conference, Connected Summit, will feature a major presentation by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
Wozniak joins Adrian Sannier, Pearson eCollege vice president of product, and Karen Cator, director of educational technology for the U.S. Department of Education, as headliners at the Feb. 28 – March 1 conference in Abilene.
Connected Summit’s theme is “Turning the Page: The Next Chapter for Education,” and is attracting presenters and participants from around the world, especially educators, administrators, technologists, thought-leaders and policy-makers interested in the emerging role of digital books and how they will influence mobile learning.
Wozniak will be the evening keynote speaker on Monday, Feb. 28 in Moody Coliseum, starting at 7:30 p.m. Entertainment will be provided by The Rocketboys, an award-winning Austin-based indie/ambient rock group of former ACU students that has performed at SXSW and the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
Apple was founded in 1976 by Wozniak, Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne, and provides the iPhones and iPod touches used by ACU students and faculty as part of the university’s award-winning mobile-learning initiative.
Wozniak authored the 2007 book, iWoz: Computer Geek to Cult Icon.
