Day of Technology Nearly 500 teachers and administrators from Marion County Public Schools will take part in “Day of Technology 2,” a jam-packed event showcasing technology used in local public school classrooms.
The event takes place Tuesday and Wednesday, August 3rd & 4th, at Lake Weir High School (10351 SE Maricamp Rd. near Ocala). August 3rd sessions run 1pm-4:30pm while August 4th sessions run 8am-4:45pm. Day of Technology
Day of Technology Local educators will learn as experts who provide current technology share their ideas, uses, and "best practices" for classroom learning. Current presenters include Anthony Salcito with Microsoft (bio information), Dr. Mark Benno with Apple (known as the "Curriculum Evangelist;" bio information), and representatives from industry leaders including Dell, Texas Instruments, SMART Technologies, Accelerated Reader, EasiTeach, Xerox, McGraw Hill, and others.
The "Day of Technology" idea started last year when the district's Technology and Information Systems department wanted to expose teachers to the latest technology used in classrooms all over Marion County. 2009's one-day event expands to two days this year to accommodate more presenters and attendees. Photos of last year's event are embedded in this article. Day of Technology
