I started the EdTech Meetup in Austin to help promote and encourage anybody who is interested in working in the edtech space as a start-up, developer, programmer, educator, concerned citizen, etc.
I started out in education about 6 years ago and it's been an adventure ever since. I received my MA in Education at the University of Denver and taught there for three years. Moving to Austin has been a whirlwind experience and the EdTech Meetup group has helped me see the great potential that this city and this career truly have in store for me.
I believe that k-12 and higher education has a great need for informed, capable educators who utilize technology in their instruction and I'm excited to continue to lead my colleagues in that direction.
Anybody who's anybody in Austin is going to this meetup.
Thanks Sean, Good job with the meet-up!
Yes. I should be there next Wednesday. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.
Hey Sean! It was great to meet you in the Google Lounge at SXSWedu! I am with the Google Summit Board today and we really want you guys to come! We've set up a discount code (edtechatx) for your meetup group - that code will give you all 10% off registration. :) Here's the link to our site: http://goo.gl/uLlXm. While I can't be in Austin in person for the next meetup, I'd love to be a part remotely maybe via Google Hangout?? Thanks and hope to see you in May! Jessica Johnston @edtechchic
