This group is for innovators in education. We strive to keep the balance between educators and technologists in our group.
By bringing together educators, entrepreneurs, technologists, and all-around education enthusiasts, the Edu Tech Innovators group creates a collaborative space where people across sectors can work together to tackle challenges and find meaningful solutions to the systemic problems in the global edu landscape.
We're people and professionals who want to democratize and unleash applications to facilitate learning and fulfill our promise to students whose needs are not met by the current educational system and market.
Now the Ed Tech Meetup has its own Slack channel. If you wish to join the Slack channel for a more active participation, message the organizers!

Check out their product at: http://www.activelylearn.com. I think it is a good way to teach reading and engage students in critical thinking. I interviewed there for a job (which I unfortunately didn't get), and was excited about what they offer teachers and students.
