Open House and Language Teaching Technology Demos for Middlebury College Center for Educational Technology

The Middlebury College Center for Educational Technology will hold an Open House for area residents to tour the new facility on June 13 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. The Center, which will house the College's training programs in the use of computer technology for language instruction, is located in the former Addison County Courthouse at 6 Court Street in Middlebury, Vt.

At 5:45 p.m. Middlebury College President John M. McCardell, Jr. will officially open the Center with a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony. Immediately following there will be a live interactive video link established between the Center's downtown location and the main campus of Middlebury College. President McCardell will speak with Roberto Vegu├ęz, director of the Middlebury Language Schools, who will be in a studio on campus.

Various classrooms will be set up to demonstrate the use of SCOLA, a service that provides the Center with television newscasts from various countries around the world, and to show hands-on activities such as scanning and digital photography.
