Boston EdTech - Project Night
Boston EdTech Meetup group, in collaboration with Curriculum Associates, is presenting the Project Night! Bring your laptop and ideas! Anything goes at project night, but here are some activities you might consider: 1) Continue working on an ed tech project (personal or professional) that you’ve already started 2) Start pursuing an idea you’ve just never found the time to explore 3) Build out a skill. Maybe you’re an educator who has a great idea and wants to learn to code! Or maybe you’re a developer who wants to design curriculum, but has never taken those first steps! Take the time to learn here with others who might have made similar transitions. 4) Connect with other professionals who are working to solve similar issues in the ed tech space. 5) Learn about what other interesting projects others are working on and look for opportunities to collaborate Already have an idea? Feel free to add it to this Google Document, thereby giving an opportunity for other attendees to think of your topic ahead of time! You can also add a brief description of what you've learned in the ed tech space that you think others might find interesting. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/19R2n5PS4LPFL5mhQckR6Ej08_bYe_Bb-2k9QJ1br7Ao/edit?usp=sharing Note that you don’t need to have a project to come to project night! This is simply an opportunity to work with like-minded people! Since successful EdTech initiatives require people of diverse backgrounds, we’d love to see collaboration between educators, developers, researchers, librarians, entrepreneurs, investors, reformers and learners! We’re hoping to use this common time as a way to push YOUR idea forward. We’ll gather around different EdTech topics so that people working on similar interests can more easily find each other. Some table topics might include: Personalized and Adaptive Learning, Online Assessments, MOOCs, AR/VR, Computational Thinking in the Classroom, Informal Learning Environments, Ed Tech in Emerging Markets, and Maker Spaces. Let's get a step closer to changing the way the world learns! Agenda: 6:00 pm - Doors Open 6:30 pm - 6:40 pm - Introduction to Project Night and Announcements 6:40 - 7:10 pm - Lightning talks from participants (if there are any) 7:10 - 7:20 pm - Stand up and share! Have an idea or looking for collaborators? Quickly introduce yourself and share what you’re seeking in a short 20 second intro. 7:20 - 8:30 - Project Night begins - find a table and start working on your idea or move around and see what others are working on! (possibly swap table groupings midway through the event if things seem to not be flowing well) 8:30 - 8:45 - Closing Announcements
