U.S. UCAN Workshop
Time 10/04/12 08:00AM-03:00PM
The U.S. UCAN Workshop scheduled for October 4, 2012 in Philadelphia, PA, is a working meeting of the U.S. UCAN Pilot Affiliates (representing 14 state and regional networks) that welcomes all interested parties, including representatives from Community Anchor Institutions (CAIs) and their professional organizations. The workshop will address opportunities and issues facing this CAI-focused community of practice and explore how to spur innovation in the delivery of applications and services that use advanced broadband networks to support the missions of CAIs.
Participants will review the outcomes of the Spring 2012 Workshop and intensively discuss and then assign priorities to invited recommendations for state and national action made by the Pilot Affiliates and by national leaders in K-12 education, libraries, public safety, public media, and healthcare. A speaker addressing issues and opportunities for government CAIs is anticipated.
