We've heard about how wearable tech could impact various markets like healthcare, media and consumer focused apps...but how about the classroom? How can teachers and students leverage the use of wearable technology?
We will have a panel of perspectives ranging from ed-tech entrepreneurs to local teachers and school board members and will address the question "How will technology change the future of education?"
DC ed-tech startup entrepreneurs, local school/policy leaders and those simply interested in innovating for wearable technology are all welcome.
