LONDON, June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

With representation from the US, Poland, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Estonia and Serbia, this promises to be the most thought-provoking and intriguing learning technology of 2014. 

Smart devices, apps and the cloud - these are the new realities defining how and where people access Information Technology. The past five years have seen more technology changes than the previous 20 years, with the seemingly unstoppable rise of the smartphone and tablet forms of communication and learning.

These devices have permeated throughout the business world and home life but what about the defence sector? Can the military utilise smart devices for the education and training of their service personnel and even apply the technology for use on operations?

Defence IQ is holding its inaugural Military E-Learning & Smart Devices Conference, to support you - the pioneers using e-learning, simulation techniques and smart devices, for the training of military personnel. This tri-service event, the only conference dedicated to the military use of smart devices for e-learning and simulation in Europe, will provide you with the chance to share best practice in what remains a relatively new and innovative side of defence capability.

"Through discussion, debate, case studies and lessons learnt, the innovators at National Defence Universities and military learning practitioners will benefit from a clear understanding of the best path to balancing capability and affordability in choosing a platform or a piece of technology that delivers optimal training effectiveness tailored to their own unique needs."
