Ignite bright young minds with Borderless Networks

October 15, 2009 - 5 Comments

Education is such a fundamental aspect of how individuals are shaped. I still remember my third or fourth grade teachers who created such an impression on me and shaped my thoughts early on, probably much more so than the professors I had in the University.  

As technology pervades the classroom environment, learning experiences are going to evolve.  A single experience can be life-changing and motivate students to choose careers of their choices – whether they become more interested in science or arts, depends on what stimulates them early on.

And so, we continue the journey right here on the Innovations blog, as we get ready for our October 20th event.  Earlier this week we talked about bringing doctors to your doorsteps. Now, we look at an “out-of-the-world” learning experience for these bright young minds.   



If we could bring in the best teachers, offer the best courses to students regardless of location, or what strata of society they belong to, it will amplify the impact of education.

Cisco’s Borderless Network Architecture envisions that with endless possibilities, enriching experiences. Shall we dare say, Borderless Education?

Join us on October 20th to see how Cisco is making this all happen – you can register here to attend.   If you are not available at this time, don’t worry, we’ll be recording the sessions for you to tune into at your own leisure as well.

Remember to stay up to date on all the Borderless Network innovations happening at Cisco by following CiscoGeeks on Twitter too.

Very best,
