Vermont Communities in a Digital Age brings community leaders and learners together to share what they have discovered so far. Take away lots of new ideas about how digital tools and broadband can be used in your community to:

  • Create jobs
  • Reinvent your schools
  • Attract visitors
  • Improve civic involvement
  • Enliven your community

Topics include ways to increase public internet access in your town (and why), a hands-on lab about online tools for business, a showcase of how technology is expanding the classroom for 4-6th graders, and the emerging role for our public libraries.

We are pleased and honored to announce our keynote speaker, Anne Galloway. Anne is an award-winning journalist and founder/editor of VTDigger.org, a statewide news website dedicated to coverage of Vermont politics, consumer affairs, business and public policy. She will discuss the importance of online journalism for reporting of community news in Vermont.

The flooding from Hurricane Irene showed us how essential social media and the Web have become for keeping communications open in an emergency. We will invite people from affected and supporting communities to discuss how they used a variety of online tools before, during and after the flood.

And don't miss our RAFFLE drawing for a Kindle Reader! (Ticket holders must be present to win.)
