Time 11/02/10 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

Recognizing the ever-increasing wave of technology and the exponential growth and expansion
of knowledge in our world, educators can either ride the crest of the wave or be
crushed by its sheer force. Understanding the traditional brick and mortar public schools of the last century are being disrupted, our profession must evolve or cease to exist. The Ware County Schools is embracing the capabilities of technology by participating with the global community through Internet2. In this highly interactive and informative session, audience participants will interact with staff from Georgia Telehealth and the Georgia Aquarium through a live Internet2 connection. Also, participants will learn how the school system partnered with eight Internet2 connectors including CERN Laboratories (Switzerland); the Georgia Center for Puppetry Arts (Atlanta); Australia Telescope Project; Georgia Tech; Classrooms in Canada and UK; Georgia Telehealth; and Georgia
