EdTech Austin is the hub for amazing keynotes, panel discussions, edtech mixers, member spotlights, and hands-on learning experiences that inspire teachers, entrepreneurs, technologists, education reformers, and edtech enthusiasts to connect, collaborate, and innovate.
We meet to explore various topics at the intersection of education and technology, to learn about the latest technologies that are supporting teachers, and to hear from teachers about the problems in education that must be fixed now.
At the Austin meetups, we challenge our community to think through ways in which technology can enhance and promote real learning to positively transform education, and we know there are amazing education advocates all around the world with a similar mission. Along with our partners in other cities, you can join The EdTech Meetup virtually using #edtechaustin and #edmeet on Twitter to share our learnings and engage with other education advocates around the world to realize positive systemic (or disruptive) change.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
