April 28, 2008, Chatsworth, CA--Campus Technology 2008, the 15th annual higher education technology conference and expo
, will open at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel in Boston, MA on July 28. This year's conference, which runs through July 31, focuses on "Web 2.0," and the cutting-edge communication and collaboration technologies that facilitate creativity, information sharing and community. Under the theme "Welcome to Next-Gen.Edu," all workshops, general sessions and special MIT campus tours will focus on the applications, software and services that are revolutionizing education throughout the campus.
Breakout sessions presented by experts who have pioneered the educational use of next-gen technologies will provide in-depth explorations and analyses of the latest tools for instruction and administration and show how they are working right now on campuses. Five separate tracks allow attendees to personalize their conference experience by choosing the sessions most relevant to their work and campus initiatives.
"Our workshop leaders will guide attendees through applications and use cases or scenarios so they can truly experience the technologies in use," says Mary Grush, Conference Director. "And the highly interactive style of our breakout sessions provides attendees with ample input from their colleagues--both from presenters and other attendees alike."
Other outstanding features of this year's conference include a keynote address
by outspoken and visionary campus technology leader Adrian Sannier of Arizona State University, special guided tours
