Educational Technology Showcased at Annual Ithaca College Event
ITHACA, NY — Now in its 22nd year, Educational Technology Day at Ithaca College annually offers an opportunity to learn about — and drool over — the latest computer and communications hardware and software. The 2012 show, which is free and open to the public, will take place on Thursday, March 22, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Emerson Suites and adjoining areas of the Campus Center.
The largest multi-platform, multi-vendor technology event for higher education in upstate New York, Ed Tech Day also attracts plenty of interest from the K–12 education and business communities. 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 audiovisual systems, learn how technology is being used today in and outside of higher education and see what can be expected in the coming years.
Local and national vendors taking part will include Adobe, Apple, Dell, Epson, Hewlett Packard and Microsoft.
Throughout the day, a series of seminars will be held on topics such as “Video Conferencing and Wireless Handheld Tablets,” “Mobility and eBooks in Today’s Classroom,” “Introduction to Enterprise Content Management” and “The Do’s and Don’ts of Launching a Mobile Learning Device.” In partnership with the Finger Lakes Faculty Development Network, a special seminar track will focus on innovations and best practices in using technology for teaching, learning and scholarship.
