ATD-American has been providing school furniture, equipment, and more to all types of commercial facilities since 1931. This past February, ATD sponsored an education forum at their newly renovated showroom in Wyncote. In support of the theme “Knowledge is Power” – attendees from Philadelphia and suburban schools and colleges heard presentations and participated in discussions about creating and maintaining the best learning facilities.
Featured speakers were Cecelia Denegre, Senior Director of Architectural Services, Campus Planning and Design at Temple University and Principal of CDA&I Architecture and Interiors, Ltd. and Bob Slaman, Territory Manager for Audio Enhancement.
Cecelia founded CDA&I in 1992 with an emphasis on integrated architecture, interior design and client advocacy. Cece’s charismatic leadership guides clients confidently through the challenges of commercial, institutional and civic projects of all sizes. Cece’s presentation “The Future of Learning Environments” reviewed the educational paradigm shift and the fundamental principles that can be used to create spaces designed to enhance student success.
Bob’s expertise with the integration of technology in educational environments provides him with a wealth of knowledge about how best to utilize technology to support student success and safety. Audio Enhancement, founded in 1978, is a pioneer of infrared audio classroom technology.
Bob’s presentation “Safe and Secure Learning Environments” provided an overview of how the SAFE (Security Alert For Education) System was developed to work in conjunction with classroom audio systems to provide security and peace of mind to administrators, educators, students and parents. In today’s world having a reliable emergency alert system is not a luxury, it is a necessity.
