Using Technology to Engage Your Community
Limited Capacity seats available

Learn how your district can utilize technology to engage your parents, citizens and constituents. We’ll explain how you can use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Podcasts to connect with your community to share your district’s story. We'll hear first hand from a Superintendent recently launched her district Facebook page and from a social savvey former Edison High School student who rocked her school vote last April.

We'll show you how you can use web-based solutions to enable you to sell tickets for district events and fundraisers.

This fast paced presentation will help you and your district look at technology you can use, instead of technology you might be afraid of.

Learn@Lunch Live - Virtual Field Trips
Limited Capacity seats available

Join us on a super exciting virtual field trip at the TD Bank Theatre on the showfloor as we demonstrate how your district can leverage the Cisco TelePresence system to take students on virtual field trips. In this simulation, your scheduled mission puts you onboard the the space station as it glides through the silence of space, two hundred and fifty miles above the earth. The station's solar panels bathe in the sun's rays, generating the electrical energy vital to the station's systems. Everything appears tranquil and safe. A major solar flare, however, is about to erupt. We'll ask for a few volunteers from the audience to help us save the day while showing you how your students can take advantage of this technology saving your district money!

Gaming and Transforming Education

Microsoft has made significant investments in gaming in education, in the classroom, physical education and with after school programs.  Hear, see, and interact with the Director of Worldwide Public Sector Education on the strategy of immersive learning, and how Microsoft can help your students and educators be more engaged.

With the most innovative approach to Kinesthetic immersive education, proven research backed in-school applications and the ability to deeply engage students, Kinect is re-defining how educators teach students. Consider Kinect for supplementing classroom education, enhancing physical education programs, engaging students in before and/or afterschool programs and deepening computer science curriculum

For educators who want to drive deeper student engagements, the most established leader in gaming, Kinect is quickly becoming one of the most innovative advancements in the classroom. Formerly seen as a gaming device, new education applications are transforming the way students learn and engage at school - in the classroom, gym, and afterschool programs. With Kinect, classroom instruction can be adapted to promote the well-being of students, as opposed to conditioning them to unnecessary classroom routines. There's tremendous application potential for the classroom, whether it's gesture-based input for smart boards or whiteboards, or the potential of having students getting more active in the classroom with projects and visual simulations, etc.
