Our FREE iPhone guide to the 2010 International Conference of the Learning Sciences in Chicago

We developed this app with the help of the conference organizers.

The information in the app is drawn from the same data set that was used to generate the conference program guide.

FAQ

Do I need to be connected to the internet to view the program?
No, the full program is downloaded when you install the application.
Will the program schedule update automatically when changes occur?
As of this version, the program schedule is "burned into" the application. So you have the full schedule when you download the application. For a future release, we may either update the schedule via a regular app update, or add the ability to push updates to your phone whenever you are connected to the internet.

Tips

  • Tap on a star to add the paper/session to your favorites.
  • Tap on any room name to jump to a hotel map showing you where that room is.
  • Zoom in and out of the map by pinching the map view.
  • All blue text in the app is tappable.
  • If you "drill down" in the Program view, just tap the Program tab to instantly get back to the top level.
