The upcoming Cisco Networking Academy and Partners Conference is an opportunity to explore technological advances, cybersecurity and cloud virtualization. Educators who attend the conference can learn about a variety of technological details and discover skills and tools that will allow them to teach their students and implement new technological classes. The conference starts on July 29th and will end on July 31st at Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills, Illinois.
This conference allows educators and school administrators the opportunity to work with some of the top technology companies in the industry such as Cisco, Citrix, CompTIA, CSSIA, EMC, Linux Professional Institue, NDG and VMware. These industry leaders will provide educators and administrators with information and skills they need to start preparing the next generation for the future.
“This is an amazing opportunity for participants to meet with engineers and representatives from Cisco and all it’s partners including VMware, EMC, NDG, Citrix and the new Linux program,” states Dr. John Sands, Co-Principal Investigator of CSSIA, “There will be hands-on workshops where attendees can build their own “RASPBERRY PIE” and several workshops addressing new curriculum topics like IPV6 and Enterprise Switching.”
The three-day event will teach instructors and other officials how to implement technology in the school setting. The sessions will focus on basic technological necessities, like how to use the cloud and how to secure technological tools.
Along with implementation of technology, the conference will explore the job skills that are currently necessary for the workforce. Since teachers need to instruct their students in the skills and tools that are useful in their future careers, they must understand the basic tools that are currently being used at work.
Instructors and administrators can take full advantage of the conference to ask the program representatives questions that arise throughout the training sessions and to learn the ways that technology can join with education and a variety of different programs.
Educators and administrators should register in advance and make arrangements for a hotel if they are traveling from a different state. Shuttle services are provided from four hotels in the surrounding areas or visitors can carpool to the event from the hotels.
Teaching the next generation the skills that they need to work in the current job market requires an understanding of the current technological tools that employers are using. The Cisco Networking Academy and Partners Conference is the perfect opportunity for instructors and educational administrators to implement new technological lessons for the upcoming school year.
