Digital Gadgets Display & Demo
This year, the Media Center will set up a table in the library to display and demo some of the digital gadgets that are available in the Media Center and that you can use in your teaching, including Flip video cameras, HD digital camera, Polycom audio conference unit, and many more. You will surely find a gadget to fit your instructional purposes.

Thank you and look forward to seeing you at the Showcase in January.
