In late October, MGMWERX hosted a live technology showcase presenting state-of-the-art instruments utilized for the delivery of content for instruction. With both military and civilian attendees, leaders in professional education technology, including Design Interactive, Overmatch, Bevilacqua Research Corporation, Dynepic, and The DVI Group, presented expertise and processes on the subject matter.
“This event was a huge benefit to those interested in utilizing technologies to enhance their teachers, students, or their institution’s lesson plan development and delivery,” declared Eric Gerritson, MGMWERX Innovation and Collaboration Principal. “The showcase was also a huge hit for those involved in instructional systems design or writing curriculum for institutions of learning.”
Featured at the Squadron Officer School (Polifka Auditorium) at Maxwell Air Force Base, attendance was limited due to COVID precautions. However, delivery and reception of information was enthusiastic and needed as pioneering and superior remote instruction has become a necessity during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“With the current pandemic, the technology showcase was the perfect time for military and civilian professionals to collect an immense amount of cutting-edge information that can help them navigate these unprecedented times with efficiency, effectiveness, and high-quality production,” explained Joyce Vaughn, Marketing & Events Manager at MGMWERX
Attendees were able to access the newest technological tools for military and civilian professions, especially education enterprises and airmen development. The newest tools and techniques were presented for in-person and remote students. Leaders had access to products that could directly help with the professional development of its scholars as well as proficient processes for the selection and training of instructors.
