There are two main education-focused sessions at Cisco Live this year at Cisco Live:

Engineering Better Teaching & Learning [PSOGEN-1004]

Tuesday, June 12th, 4:30-5:30 PM ET

West Concourse Room W313

Student success is the ends of every means pursued in the field of education. Giving students more and better opportunities to achieve success is the aim of every teacher – and it’s the aim of IT at schools and universities everywhere to empower them. Translating technology into student success means creating an integrated architecture of solutions that improve teaching and learning, from core network infrastructure to security to collaboration and beyond. In this session, learn how real schools and universities are using Cisco solutions to transform education. See the use cases they are creating to empower innovative pedagogy and active learning, and witness the technologies that bring it all to life.

LMS Integrations and the Digital Education Platform [SOLCOL-1008]

Monday, June 11th, 2:45-3:00 PM ET and Thursday, June 14th, 12:00-12:15 PM ET

Cisco Campus Arena in the World of Solutions

Traditional modes of teaching and learning continue to shift as digital education resources open up new opportunities inside and outside of the classroom. With blended learning and virtual classrooms expanding the realm of possibilities for engaging students, it is imperative for schools and universities to empower collaboration that is simple, secure, and connected with their physical and digital resources across campus. By bringing collaboration into the learning management system (LMS) itself with integrations, Cisco and our partners are making it easy for educators everywhere to collaborate without compromise and harness the power of all of their resources in concert to support student success.
