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!
How are blended, personalized, and mastery-based learning transforming K-12 education? Learn about the most current research and practice in blended and personalized learning in classrooms, and discuss where these practices may go in the future. Presented by Stephen Pham, Associate Partner at The Learning Accelerator, a national nonprofit supporting personalized and mastery-based learning.
We will be meeting in the back room of Ada's Technical Books and Cafe.
We will explore the paths to commercializing EdTech products. You have a great idea and think it will add a lot of value to the classroom. You may also have already launched a proof of concept, but are stuck on:
How will I take it to market?
Do I have access funds to implement?
Can I convince school districts to use my product?
How to scale it out.
We will have speakers that have experience taking products to market, as well as those on the purchasing side. They will come and talk about challenges, opportunities and options.
Agenda Topics :
Product Development + Education Trends
How Schools are financed to purchase your product
Two Scary Words: DATA PRIVACY
Scaling Edtech: Not just B2B + B2C
We are currently lining up speakers for our topics. We would like to hear what worked and what failed and lessons learned. Our speaker slots are for 3-5 minutes. If you have interesting experiences to share with the community and would like to be a speaker please contact Casey or Nishant. Casey has helped organized and facilitated a number of Edtech events and looks to share his experiences working in enterprise and with schools.
We will have a 20 minute segment where the meetups members can pitch their idea and get direct feedback from the speakers. And finally we have ample time for networking to getting to know your community!
