ISTE is one of my favorite tradeshows, ever, and this is probably because it falls squarely between the school-year wrap-up and the glorious lull of quiet summer days, sans students. As June rolls around, and we find our summer rhythm, ISTE gives us a chance to reflect, together, on how technology is impacting education.
The theme of the show this year is “Exploring Excellence.” I believe that we need to do this together. As we reach an important inflection point in education where there is a global realization for the need to change, there is an urgent need to communicate and collaboration more effectively, share best practices, and find new ways to engage students in the learning process with technologies such as video streaming and conferencing, online learning, and other innovative web-based learning tools and models. Together, we can explore technologies that will help you to create excellent learning environments for your students.
ISTE provides the perfect forum for this free exchange of ideas. And, we are especially pleased to have our newest family member, Tandberg, next door to us on the show floor adding new products in video and TelePresence to our offerings for Education industry. We will be joined by education leaders, key partners, and customers. Together with Tandberg, we are showcasing our Connected Learning solutions that help transform teaching and learning and enhance the educational experience for our students. For the first time ever at an education event, we will jointly demonstrate our TelePresence solutions designed specifically for an education environment.
We will be featuring our Video Enabled Teaching and Learning Solutions, including Cisco MXE 3500 (Media Experience Engine), Cisco Show and Share, Cisco TelePresence™, Digital Media Suite, WebEx® for Education, Flip Video™ camcorders and theMedianet architecture. These technologies have been designed to help increase access to quality education, effectively engage students, reach students beyond the walls of the traditional classroom, deliver exceptional professional development programs, and provide opportunities for lifelong learning. Experts from Cisco and our partners will also be demonstrating our other solutions for Connected Learning, including Cisco Smart Connected Buildings, campus safety, digital media, network infrastructure, online learning, unified communications and more.
