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.
