The Boston EdTech Meetup Group supports educators, technologists, researchers, librarians, entrepreneurs, investors, reformers and learners looking to explore, discuss and improve technology in academia, K-12 education, higher education, and the private sector.
We meet monthly to hear from those who are transforming teaching and learning through panel discussions, community mixers, member spotlights, keynote speakers, workshops, and hands-on learning experiences to explore the intersection of education and technology.
Come join us for Boston EdTech's July Unconference, a participant driven event where attendees will determine the agenda and discussion topics for the evening!
In the spirit of an unconference, attendees are encouraged to sit and listen to a discussion, share personal insight, or bounce between rooms until you find a discussion that best suits your needs.
Some potential topics on this evening are:
-Upskilling during the Pandemic
-Preparing for an unpredictable environment in Education
We'll start the evening by giving anyone the opportunity to pitch discussion topics. It can be a topic that you're an expert in or an area you'd love to learn more about. We'll vote on topics and then split into separate breakout sessions to discuss the top voted topics. Attendees can attend whichever discussions they'd like!
