  • Guidebook App version: For those of you who have electronic devices capable of running "Apps" (i.e., smart phones, iPads, tablets), we have created a version of the conference schedule you can view with the "Guidebook" App. This version includes the conference schedule with individual abstracts (as well as a few other things). You are also able to use the App to develop a personal schedule for the conference, so you might want to download the App for more than just the abstracts.  This application is available via Guidebook (see for additional details). To utilize this version of the program, please do the following:

1.  Download and install Guidebook for your device (from the App Store, Google Play Store, etc.). It is a free download. The icon for this App is a blue square with a white lowercase "g" on it.

2.  Next, while in Guidebook, download the AME “guide” labeled Association for Moral Education (you can search using the word “moral” and it will appear).

3.  Once you have downloaded the AME “guide,” you are done.  If we revise the AME App (guide), your phone/tablet will automatically update it.
