Learning Environment Design with EdTech Start-Ups - A Workshop

In this fast-paced, action-packed workshop, founders from 6 EdTech startups/projects will each work with a team of EdTech experts, entrepreneurs, and local educators to design models of "learning environments" that define and support their targeted audience, learner, or customer.

The workshop will be preceded by a round of networking. Each project or start-up will need a team of enthusiastic participants to help take them to the next level. Use the spreadsheet below to sign up to join the workshop team for one of the projects or start-ups. During the workshop, you will work with that team as they design learning environments that will take these start-ups and projects to the next level!!
