Welcome to the Cisco Education Blog. We’ll be using this blog to share our vision and solutions for Connected Learning. We’ll also showcase the success that education leaders are having creating 21st Century learning environments for students in schools, colleges and universities all around the world. More importantly, we’ll use the blog to listen, so please be generous with your comments and feedback.
Cisco has a great story to tell in Education. This story emanates from our Chairman and CEO, John Chambers, who firmly believes that there are two great equalizers in society – the Internet and Education. He also has outlined a long term vision for Cisco to be the best in the world and the best for the world.
As a result, Cisco’s approach to education is comprehensive and multi-faceted. We have groups across all of Cisco that are actively engaging with Education leaders to improve education everywhere. At the core of these engagements, is our fundamental belief that the network can serve as a platform for education innovation that can dramatically improve educational outcomes for students.
One of the ways we showcase innovative and practical solutions for today’s education challenges is the Cisco Virtual Forum for Education Leaders. This online Forum is filled with informative presentations and resources that demonstrate the success that dedicated educators are having meeting today’s education challenges. The Forum features the following keynote speakers:
