Educating Educators: ARRIS Hosts Teacher Development Day in Philly

01 Apr 2015

Recently, ARRIS brought in teachers from all over the Philadelphia School District for a full-day IMG_0980survey course on tomorrow’s entertainment and communications technology.

We opened up our Horsham Customer Experience Center to host the Spring 2015 Philadelphia School Teacher Professional Development Day—giving local teachers a glimpse of how we help service providers bring new technology and experiences—like 4K, multiscreen, and high-speed broadband—to homes in the Philadelphia metro area.

Our own Global Services manager, Kim Andrews, volunteered the ARRIS Horsham campus for the event as a way to bring community educators up to speed on how a local technology leader is collaborating with its customers to Invent the Future for millions of people around the world—while offering some inspiration as to the kinds of  jobs, innovation, and experiences that await local students.

“Our presentations included recommendations to energize the ‘conversations between teachers and students,’ ” said Kim. “And hopefully, they’ll jumpstart interest from students in the local tech industry.”
