Please join us for our twenty-third annual Educational Technology Day at Ithaca College on Thursday, March 21st from 9am to 4pm in our Campus Center!
Educational Technology Day is a regional technology event that attracts over 1,600 people annually from the upstate New York area. At the event you'll be able to talk directly with major computer and technology vendors, explore educational applications, be dazzled by computer graphics and state of the art audio-visual systems, learn how technology is being used today in and outside of higher education, and see what can be expected in the coming years.

From 9am to 4pm, vendors and others will be presenting seminars and demonstrations. We will once again have a special “Teaching and Learning with Technology Symposium” track presented in partnership with the Finger Lakes Faculty Development Network. Visit our Web site for complete details. In past years the topics included system and network security issues, virtualization, storage solutions, mobile computing, educational uses of technology, eClassroom setup, and many other IT related topics. This year's schedule will be posted about two weeks prior to the event.
The Discuss...IT sessions provide an opportunity to chat with others who are interested in the same topic to share ideas, frustrations, and solutions. The sessions will be facilitated by someone from Ithaca College who is familiar with the issue, but the content will come from you. Topics in the past have included technology in K-12, collaboration tools, helpdesk, emergency notification systems, mobile computing, and others – if you have a suggestion for a topic for a Discuss..IT session this year, please drop us a note.
Complete show information, including free on-line registration, is available on our Web site. We will continue to update the Web site with information, seminars, vendors, and special programs as we get closer to the event. The Ed Tech Day Web site is located at: www.ithaca.edu/edtechday
