Last week, I traveled to Michigan to visit a Cisco customer. The customer was the Utica Community Schools who had recently installed a Cisco Wireless Solution including the new Aironet 2600 Access Point for all their K-12 Schools. I visited the elementary school where I was able to observe how the students used the wireless network in the classroom environment.
While talking with the principal, she told me that since they installed the wireless network, the kindergarten class for example has transformed how children our educated. The children interactively learn through tablets, laptops and computers. Through the wireless solution, a variety of educational applications are enabled where the curriculum is designed for individual student depending on his or her level.
We will be featuring the Utica, MI School System in an upcoming video case study. UPDATE: Now Posted!
In the meantime, we have a webinar planned that specifically covers how Mobility is transforming K-12. In this webinar, you will learn from the experiences of our guest speaker, Dr. Scott Smith, Chief Technology Officer, Mooresville Graded School District from Mooresville, NC.
We also have Tony De La Rossa, a Cisco Systems Engineer who will discuss the Cisco Mobility solution and how it can effectively be used for K-12.
The webinar is December 11th @ 9:AM PST and you can register here.
