In our first meetup of 2013, we’re taking a deep dive into the edtech entrepreneurial process to find which approaches have seen some measure and success, and which ones need to simmer a little longer (or be thrown out of the kitchen completely!).
There will be a ‘shark tank’ of educators on hand to call it like they see it. No pitches here -- just honest and meaningful dialogue around problem discovery, building and testing hypotheses, and getting the results that matter. We'll be focusing on three points:
- Problem discovery
- Feedback and iteration
The companies that we'll feed to the sharks are:
- Bloomboard (PD tools and marketplace)
- GlassLab (Game-based learning and assessment)
- Meograph ("Four-dimensional" storytelling tool)
There'll be plenty of lessons and insights about what works in the development process of edtech tools. (And of course, a spectacular failure is just as informative!) Hope to see you there for a merry night of learning and schmoozing!
Your loyal EdSurgents,
Tony & Leonard
