Join us at this event hosted by Boston University and the Boston EdTech Meetup Group!

This month, we'll discuss the disconnect that exists between new services created in education technology, and the solutions that colleges are actually looking for. Why are solutions to non-problems created? What can be done to make it easier to understand the problems in our industry?
