    Apologies to you as well Luciana -- we are a work in progress! Most exciting part for me was the convergence of enthusiasm among entrepreneurs, government officials and academics. It's a special moment for edtech innovation and ed policy. Eager to have Stanford School of Education be a hub for new conversations. Keep us on your radar screen and give us another try with the parking!

      Mitchell, no apologies necessary! But thank you for being so kind. Parking is often challenging in the Bay Area; it is just a part of the game. Thank you for sharing your impressions about the meeting. I will certainly keep the group on my radar.

    Randy, sorry about that -- Stanford campus can be very confusing in a car -- we will make every effort to specify options for future Meetups.

    Thanks all for your efforts to attend!

      I don't mean to belabor the point, but just wanted convey that this issue was not just isolated to the two folks. I had the same thing. I managed to get a spot near the oval but didnt have enough change (looked around for a change machine but in vain). After spend ~25 mins on parking, decided to head back instead of risking a ticket. In retrospect, I should have planned better with more time margin.

    How about adding a virtual meeting access next time?

    • Roy P.

      great idea - have you done this before? what is your preferred way to add virtual participants to the meeting?

    Good, although I thought the introductions of everybody in the room took up too much time at the beginning since there were about 100 attendees.

    The first SV Digital Meetup was extremely useful for me personally, and even more so for the field of digital learning. It is essential that folks with different interests and strengths collaborate to advance the field of digital learning.

    I couldn't make it. I tried. Spend 20 minutes looking for a parking space and finally gave up to back to office and work on our eLearning start-up. Have customers I needed to work with. Maybe next time there will be better parking.

      Randy, If it's any consolation, I work full time at Stanford and have a parking sticker, but some days I simply cannot find a space to park and after circling for ten to fifteen minutes, I end up going home to work. The parking problem here is truly chronic. Keith Devlin

      I should have known better. I used to spend a lot of time on campus but had forgottwn the parking challenge. Next time, I'll get there an hour early not jus 20 minutes.

    Great convening of entrepreneurs, researchers, educators. Kickoff by Roy Pea, organizer and professor, introducing Karen Cator, Director, Office of Educational Technology, and Jim Shelton, Ass't Secretary of Innovation, and lively introduction to developments in the field and national supports for edtech innovation provided by US DOE Deputy Director of Educational Technology Richard Culatta. Participants introduced themselves, shared the educational needs they are addressing, and challenges being faced, and then brought out into roughly five different 'birds of a feather' groups to pursue new partnering and information sharing, networking opportunities. We'll be sure to convene such groups in future and welcome ideas about topical emphases. Thanks Everyone for attending!

  • Luciana

    Hi all, I'd love to hear about the meeting. What was most interesting in your opinion? Like Randy, I drove all the way to Stanford and after going around a number of times gave up on parking meters that only take coins, and drove back to work.

    I made a couple of great connections. It was on the fringe with topics since I'm working on accountability problems.
