If you’re working in a Vermont school as an IT director, administrator or teacher, you won’t want to miss the upcoming Vermont Vita-Learn TechPizza ChromeFest 15 at Williston Central School. This event will be held on Wednesday, May 6 from noon to 4:00 pm and includes a pizza lunch from Ramuntos as well as exhibits, speakers, round table discussion and door prizes. ChromeFest ’15 provides the opportunity to explore the Chromebook environment in schools and discuss issues such as managing Wifi for a 1:1 environment, internet safety and more. This event is organized by Vita-Learn, which has the mission to promote and support the use of information technology in Vermont education through professional development, training and networking opportunities.
CTL is a proud sponsor of the Vita-Learn ChromeFest ’15 and will exhibit information on both their CTL NL6 Education Chromebook and CTL J2 Chromebook for Education. As Vermont Schools begin the implementation of Smarter Balanced tests based on the Common Core State Standards, CTL is a valuable resource for test ready, fast and secure Chromebooks.
