|9:10 - 10:20 am||Kids Privacy on the Mobile Net: Is it PII or TMI?
In today's mobile and digital world, children and youth can share information in ways that may make adults uncomfortable. Is the mobile Net - including new Location Based Services - eliminating the concept of privacy, or enabling different generational notions of privacy? How should industry leaders and policymakers respond to ways that mobile technology is changing the nature of public and private?

|10:30 - 11:45 am||Will Mobile Technology Transform Learning, or Destroy It?|
Some educators and analysts view mobile technology as an important new tool for learning, while others see it as just another distraction - or worse. Will laptops, notepads and mobile devices open up the classroom, or make it harder for teachers to teach? How do educators, industry leaders and policymakers maximize the potential educational benefits of mobile?
