FETC News: Tour of technology school Jan 15

Calypso Systems is showcasing its integrated school communication systems at Florida's technology demonstration school. Ocoee Middle School, which is open for tours during FETC 2010, features three Calypso ezRoom-5000 classroom A/V systems, complete with integrated voice amplification capabilities.

Ocoee Middle School underwent a top-to-bottom renovation in 2009, transforming the school into a showcase for technology-based learning enhancements. The school is designed with 21st century instruction in mind, incorporating ceiling-mounted projectors, document cameras and large screens in every classroom.

Calypso ezRoom-5000 integrates multiple A/V sources - such as projectors, interactive whiteboards, document cameras and personal computers - and gives teachers a single point of control, accessible from an intuitive wall controller and the teacher's PC.

Ocoee Middle School is offering a tour, followed by a light lunch, for FETC attendees Friday, January 15. For more information, please e-mail Sharon Calentine at calents@ocps.net, or look for the sign-up display in the FETC registration area. Space is limited.
