TANDBERG Prepared for Show and Tell at the National Middle School Association Annual Conference and Exhibition

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - November 4, 2009) -


What:

With state education budgets stretched to breaking points and resources limited, an increasing number of innovative educators are turning to video teleconferencing (VTC) to provide a more interactive and extensive education at a fraction of the cost.

At this year's National Middle School Association (NMSA) Annual Conference and Exhibition, TANDBERG, the leading global provider of telepresence, high-definition video teleconferencing and mobile video products and services, will be illustrating the ways that VTC can make education systems run more efficiently and effectively, and showcasing some of the unique and previously unheard-of education opportunities that can be delivered to students via VTC.

TANDBERG will also be using their VTC solutions to connect the NMSA's interactive "21st Century Classroom" exhibit with the Great Barrier Reef, the junior school of College Jacques Twinger in Stasbourg, France, and multiple experts and virtual fieldtrips.
