How Can EdTech Increase College Readiness & Retention?

The Robin Hood Foundation, in partnership with ideas42, is launching The Robin Hood College Success Prize, a ground-breaking $5 million challenge, designed to identify scalable technology solutions to increase 3-year graduation rates of community college students, a major milestone in the ongoing fight against poverty in New York City and beyond.

In support of this challenge, this EdSurge SF EdTech meetup is bringing together representatives from academia, policy, and industry to discuss success and risk factors for community college students, and what role technology might play in affecting these factors.

The hour-long panel, hosted by EdSurge's Mary Jo Madda, will feature:

• Dr. Faye McPhail Naples, Vice Chancellor of Student Development, City College of San Francisco

• Franklyn Chien, Co-Founder and CEO, LearnSprout

• Kareem Edouard, Filmmaker, Doctoral Student, Stanford Learning Sciences, Technology, Design

• James Sanders, Educator & Entrepreneur, Presidential Innovation Fellow

Whether you're a Higher Ed industry representative, K-16 educator, budding entrepreneur, or plain ole' edtech enthusiast, we invite everyone to listen, learn, and offer their own insights on how to better connect the dots between technology innovation and the real problems that college-going students face.

See ya there!

    Visiting SF from Minneapolis by way of Gabon, Indonesia, and China. Would love to squeeze into the back of the room. I'm used to crowds so I don't need a chair.
