Details

We're all students this November as we explore the future of EdTech! We're teaming up with Koding Kurriculum, technologists and educators to discuss changes in education prompted by advances in technology, how these changes disrupt education in both positive and negative ways, and their implications on today's youth.

What goes into the decisions that introduce new technology and applications into the classroom? Are classic subjects and teaching methods becoming obsolete - for better or worse? What can be done to better support the community and classrooms?

Come out on November 13th for a fun night of networking and learning about how we can positively leverage technology to shape the future as we know it!
