(Keynote and Panel Discussion).
Hear from teachers, innovators, administrators, and policy experts about how technology has reinvented the American classroom. Teachers are no longer the gatekeepers of knowledge; rather they are facilitators of the learning process. Hear directly from the educators, administrators, and ed-tech entrepreneurs on the front lines.
Plus, bank on engaging in amazing discussions, forging new connections with the best and the brightest, and learning from people all over the ed-tech spectrum in our Nation's Captal!
