Education professionals have the opportunity to join Verbit at two exciting upcoming events to learn more about the positive ways that innovations are helping students succeed.

This year’s return to the classroom will be unlike any other. Schools are developing curriculums that integrate innovative technology and build off skills that teachers, professors and students gained because of the unprecedented pandemic-related restrictions on in-person learning.

Now is the perfect time to incorporate fresh teaching strategies into the classroom. These virtual events will offer ample inspiration for educators looking to update their use of technology in education.

SUNY Empire State College’s 6th Annual Learning with Technology Conference

On July 23rd, Verbit’s leaders are excited to join SUNY as its team hosts the annual Learning with Innovative Technology Conference. Presentations will offer valuable tips and insights to K-12 educators, faculty and staff at higher education institutions, librarians, technologists and anyone else involved in education.

Verbit’s team is excited to man a live virtual booth at the conference and showcase how the company works with many higher education institutions, and helping them maximize their accessibility and inclusivity with AI-powered live captioning and other technology solutions. The event is virtual and free to all who may benefit, so visit Verbit’s booth to ask questions and get key information from our captioning and transcription experts.

The event qualifies for Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) credits and education students who attend may earn college credits as well. Attendees can select the specific sessions that best suit their needs and interests, including topics like:

  • Incorporating technology and platforms like Zoom and Google Sites into curriculums to boost learning and create shared collaborative spaces
  • Re-engaging students when they return to full in-person learning
  • Using tools to improve accessibility

AHEAD’s Virtual Exhibit Hall Presentation

On July 26th and 27th, the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) is hosting its two-day Virtual Exhibit Hall Presentation. Verbit’s higher education customer success leaders, Scott Ready and Dr. Misty Cobb will be kicking off the event with a discussion about ways that all students can benefit from technology developed for students with disabilities.

AHEAD is a non-profit organization committed to breaking down barriers that prevent people with disabilities from fully participating in post-secondary education opportunities, which is a key mission of the Verbit team as well.

Ready, Verbit’s Senior Customer Success Manager and Accessibility Evangelist has more than 35 years of experience working in accessibility and over 20 years in education. Cobb is an education professional who helps K-12 and higher education leaders use technology to create equitable and accessible learning environments.

During their session, titled “Broadening the Realm of Possibilities,” Ready and Cobb will explore alternative ways to use technology, including features educators can implement when using popular online platforms like Zoom. These education experts will also present critical industry data and offer predictions regarding the use of education technology as tools for making everyone’s daily lives easier. For instance, captioning is essential for the Deaf and hard of hearing, but studies now indicate it helps all cohorts because students remember and retain more information when instructors offer multiple channels of instruction.

The event will include other presentations regarding AI in education, CART transcription standards, accommodations for Blind students and additional topics that will help educators and administrators better serve students with disabilities while conserving resources.

Join these exciting events to network with peers, ask questions and gather information for the evolving world of education. We hope to see you there, but in the meantime, click here to learn more about how Verbit can support educators and their students.
