Educational institutions face numerous challenges determining how to reopen safely. Fortunately, there are technologies available to help students and staff return to school in a safe and effective manner, and funding streams available to cover the costs of those technologies.
Join us October 28 at 11:00am PT/2:00pm ET as experts from Intel, Genetec and the Center for Digital Education discuss key considerations for reopening your school, how to adopt a layered approach to school safety, and the funding streams available to educational institutions and how to secure them.
We’ll also explore:
- How unified technologies can reduce inefficiencies and break down silos
- How to leverage an open architecture​ that’s modular and can easily be expanded over time
- Use cases of educational institutions that are leveraging these technologies today
- How to repurpose technologies once COVID-19 concerns have passed
