St. Rose focuses on technologies in education | Events
How can educators best harness the power, mobility and connectivity of the latest technologies? That’s the focus of a two-day conference at The College of Saint Rose.
The first “Technologies in Education Conference” will be held Monday, May 16, and Tuesday, May 17, from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. in the Thelma P. Lally School of Education, 1009 Madison Ave. in Albany.
The conference will share with educators in all fields, including K-12 teachers, higher education faculty, technologists and librarians, some of the hottest technical tools available and new approaches to incorporating them in the classroom, school and community.
Cisco, Ebsco Industries, Smart Thinking, Texas Instruments, Lenovo, WMHT, NBC Learn and other technology firms will demonstrate their latest products and applications.
Workshops will cover such diverse topics as cyberbullying, K-12 research in a virtual Second Life island, and the next generation learning environment.
Keynote addresses by Vikram D. Bakhru, a director at New York Presbyterian Hospital/The University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell, and Dr. Shirley Waterhouse, senior director of the Office of Academic Excellence and Innovation at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, will kick off each day’s sessions.
“Ever-changing technology creates new opportunities, and new challenges, for educators in and outside the classroom. This conference is a part of the College’s ongoing commitment to make sure that those who teach can know how to apply all that technology has to offer,” said executive director of information technology services, John Ellis.
