Having the ability to speak more than one language in today's world is essential for success.  It's not just English, Spanish, etc.  It's iOS and Android!  Join me as I detail my adventures in learning how to speak Android!   You'll learn how the two operating systems differ, yet remain quite similar.  You'll explore apps that can be used on both platforms, and some of the unique aspects to both.  In the end, you'll realize that speaking two languages is a wonderful skill to possess.  So join me and learn how to speak Android!      

Many people who live in the iOS world like to stay there.  The thought of moving to another world is not only scary, but some might consider crazy.  iOS, after all, is intuitive, easy to adapt, and seemingly prevalent in the world of education.  The idea of learning a new OS language creates a new and possibly frustrating learning curve.     This presentation will explore how quickly one can learn to speak Android when coming from an iOS world.  That is, how does on become bilingual?  What steps need to be taken?  Which device or devices should one look at to learn this new language?  And, how does the integration of the Android language in the classroom differ from that of the iOS classroom world?  As with the learning of iOS, the learning of the Android language is a process that can easily be acquired.    During this presentation participants will have the opportunity to explore both operating systems and their respective application market places.  Participants will become knowledgeable about how to acquire Android skills, and how to really understand the differences between the two operating systems.  The presentation of apps from both platforms will be incorporated, including a listing of apps that are friendly to both iOS and Android.    In the end, participants will learn that if you're fluent in the language of iOS, you can easily become fluent in the Android language as well.
