LONG BEACH, CA--Epson America and PolyVision announced the donation of ten new Epson PowerLite W6 multimedia projectors and ten new interactive whiteboards to the Florida Digital Educator program’s Master Digital Educators.
The Master Digital Educators will use the Epson PowerLite W6 multimedia projectors and PolyVision interactive whiteboards to showcase the importance of integrating interactive learning technologies to enhance students’ classroom experiences. This innovative mentor-program is an extension of the Florida Digital Educator (FDE) Program, allowing educators with extensive technology experience to train other peers on how to best provide the technology skills necessary to launch Florida’s students into the digital age. The FDE supports the use of technology across the state’s K-12 curricula through collaborative experiences with new technologies and digital tools.
“The Florida Department of Education’s FDE program at the Florida Center for Instructional Technology (FCIT) is always looking for the most advanced products to integrate into the program, and we are thankful that two companies like Epson and PolyVision are allowing our trainers to do just that,” said G. Gordon Worley, Learning and Development Facilitator at FCIT. “Epson and PolyVision are both leaders in their industries, and with their help, the FDE program will be able to ensure that educators are using this technology to transform learning and ultimately empower students to succeed in the global community.”
