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 unleash applications to facilitate learning and fulfill our promise to students whose needs are not met by the current educational system and market.
