Stetson University’s Lifelong Learning Program is pleased to announce the first Tech E-Fest Expo to be held at the Stetson Center at Celebration campus Thursday, March 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Stetson has partnered with the Celebration Town Hall and SmartCity to help draw attention to the many technology topics that face our senior learners today. The Stetson University Center at Celebration is located at 800 Celebration Ave., Celebration, Fla.
This year’s conference is open to those learners interested in gathering new information, participating in hands-on experiences in technology, and communicating with those in the community who can help to expand our understanding of technology as it is today and where it is going in the future. Speakers representing industry, research from the information security arena, as well as academic scholars, will present and discuss the latest topics in contemporary and prospective computer and network issues focusing on strategies, experiences and techniques with regards to the community of experienced learners.
The 2014 Tech-E Expo is a brand new program design, consisting of a technical presentation in a non-threatening and entertaining modality. The program will include:
- Stetson Professor of Statistics Betty Thorne, Ph.D. (Keynote Speaker) – Internet Fraud and How to Protect Yourself from Identity Theft
- Mike Wacht – sharing the latest updates on SunRail
- Navigating Windows 8
- Facebook Basics
- The power of Google… just to name a few.
This full-day expo, organized as an education fair with 45-minute learning sessions and exhibitor hall, is an excellent opportunity for you to meet with community members, exhibitors, and scholars who share a desire to promote technology and how it can impact us.
We will also have a secure drop-off site for safely recycling used phones, computers, tablets, etc.
