DORAL, FL – January 7, 2010 – In a private library a student works on a term paper online with fifteen of his peers who are thousands of miles away all in real-time. A teacher uses geo-tagging on Google Earth to showcase an archeological dig while scientists discuss their finds through a live feed on YouTube. Welcome to the classroom of the future! Educators seeking innovative solutions for their IT needs will get a chance to explore the “classroom of the future” when UDT (UDT) showcases the latest technological breakthroughs in the field of education at the FETC 2010 tradeshow in Orlando, Fla. from January 12th-15th, 2010. As the leading provider of IT solutions in the Southeastern United States, UDT has been providing leading edge technology to the K-12 market for over a decade. During the FETC Tradeshow, the company will again lead the way by unveiling the latest state-of-the-art products and services designed to help educators equip their classrooms for the 21st century. Visitors to the UDT booth will experience the thrill of the digital classroom, along with the latest and greatest products from tier-one UDT partners like Hewlett Packard.
“We hope to show educators that UDT continues to be their total solutions provider with hardware, services, deployment and installations from the data center to the desktop and beyond,” states Tony Cossio, UDT Vice President of Public Sector Sales. “They’ll be able to view live demos as well as experience firsthand the myriad of functionalities these products bring to students and teachers alike.”
Tradeshow attendees also will be able to explore UDT’s “Classroom in a Box” approach to the interactive classroom, which offers an all-inclusive audio-visual technology package designed to enhance the multimedia experience. The PoleVault System, a major component of the package, offers a single point of control for teachers to manage audio and video equipment throughout the classroom.
“The benefit of the ‘Classroom in a Box’ is that it’s a turnkey environment where schools don’t have to go out and buy various components, and other devices from separate vendors,” Cossio said. “They can just get one part number from UDT and it takes care of everything they need to make that classroom a state-of-the-art environment.”
FETC is one of the largest and most successful conferences showcasing the latest educational technology in the United States. It is expected to draw over 400 vendors, as well as college educators and administrators from schools nationwide.
