June 19, 2014 by Doug Levin
On Saturday, June 28th, 2014 from 4:00 pm – 5:15 pm ET in International Salon 1-3 at the Marriott Marquis, Atlanta, Georgia, SETDA will be joined by representatives from the U.S. Department of Education and the companies that have committed $2 billion in educational technology resources under President Obama’s ConnectED Initiative to share information about their commitments and how educators can take advantage of them.
This first of its kind event is free and open to the public, although an RSVP by June 26 is required to attend. The event is being held in conjunction with the invitation-only SETDA Emerging Technologies Forum and adjacent to the 2014 ISTE Conference and Expo in Atlanta, GA.
ConnectED is intended to enrich K-12 education for every student in America by leveraging the power of technology for learning, including through public-private partnerships with leading technology companies. To date, President Obama has announced that ten companies have pledged $2 billion in support toward advancing ConnectED goals. SETDA is helping the companies highlight their commitments with an interest in ensuring that students and teachers most in need of support benefit from these unprecedented offers of public-private partnership. Companies that have made ConnectED commitments include: Adobe; Apple, Inc.; AT&T; Autodesk; Esri; Microsoft; Prezi; Safari Books Online; Sprint Corporation; and Verizon.
