This is my first ever CES (Consumer Electronics Show) event and the first time that I am attending a major conference and not wearing a press pass. This is my third visit to Vegas in less than three months on the business side of education, and a new fork in the road for me. I’m gearing up and open to helping change the landscape in how we teach students. So Start Your Engines #CES2016 is here!
CES describes itself as: the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. Everything from smart-home, smart-health, and what appears to be lots of smart wearables as well as incredible cars of the future that do the driving themselves. All of this and more, lots more, being displayed for the 176,000 attendees to peruse 3,200 exhibitors on the 2.4 million square feet of floor space at 2016 CES, Las Vegas.
I did see a few familiar faces in the crowd, Robin Raskin of Living in Digital Times with Kaare Christian and Tonda Sellars from Kids Digital Media. I am looking forward to seeing more of the educational technology crowd in the coming days.
