The AMT’s Emerging Technology Center, or ETC, made its debut at IMTS 2004 as a place to educate, inform and excite the manufacturing community about ground-breaking innovations specific to the industry. Working with the partners helped to focus our minds on particular market sections that our technology really brought a benefit to. It helped to inform the direction of our technology development and saved us a lot of time. We have the solar energy, the wind powered plants, hydrogen battery technology.
We serve as a catalyst to make technology and issues related to technology integral parts of the undergraduate educational experience spanning both general education and major course offerings. Whether or not we can find ways to create systems and programs that are only beneficial to learning is extremely important and research has to continue to improve education for the future.
PwC helps our clients answer these complex questions and get a plan in place, enabling them to differentiate themselves, remain competitive and improve their business by embracing emerging technologies.

The development of video technology and the development of information connections has afforded society the ability to see and talk to others instantaneously. The second educational technology I am reviewing this week is the website, ESL Games ( ), which offers free, fun, and interactive games for ESL leaners of all ages to work on English vocabulary and grammar.
I am convinced that allowing students to work with technology that is fun for them can help them with having a better attitude about school. As new developments disrupt the industry, Emerging Technologies will prepare you to lead the way. Thus a big RFID / emerging technology debate needs to happen to insure we don’t waste this opportunity before us. I am working with Two Four Productions to bring this debate to our TV screens, so if anyone wants to get involved please do contact me.
