eXtension at USDA/NIFA and Ag Outlook Forum, February 18-20


Big Data, Unmanned Aerial Systems, Wearable Technology, Network Literacy, the Educational Technology Learning Network, and Virtual Reality will all be featured by eXtension February 18-20 in Washington DC.

Wednesday, February 18, eXtension members and staff will present these topics at a workshop/demonstration at USDA/NIFA headquarters. National Program Leaders, program managers, and administration have been invited to see and discuss these interest areas.

On Thursday and Friday, February 19 & 20, eXtension will feature 6 exhibit spaces at the USDA Ag Outlook Forum in Crystal City, VA. The 2015 Forum Theme: Smart Agriculture in the 21st Century: A Discussion on Innovation, Biotechnology, and Big Data fits well with the direction eXtension is moving. These new user communities, learning networks, and communities of practice demonstrate Cooperative Extension’s movement into new areas.

If you’re at the Ag Outlook Forum please plan to visit the eXtension booths.
