An Education Revolution: Teaching the Millennials
Gus Vasilakis, Vice President of Enterprise Sales, Alcatel-Lucent
Never before in human history has a generation grown up with the wide variety of connected devices and instantaneous communications as our digital native "Millennials" have. Educators are now in the unenviable position of competing for - and winning - the attention of these students. This presentation will provide, through case studies and examples, an overview of the solutions that Alcatel-Lucent and Bell Laboratories have created which leverage social media, video conferencing, interactive whiteboard collaboration, augmented reality and digital textbooks to help a university evolve or revolutionize their pedagogical practices.

In this role Gus is responsible for Enterprise Data, Voice, Wireless, Security, and Video product sales.
