Brain Training: How to accelerate your learning & the future of EdTech

THIS IS A PAID EVENT - PURCHASE YOUR TICKET IN THE LINK BELOW https://www.startupgrind.com/events/details/startup-grind-edinburgh-presents-brain-training-how-to-accelerate-your-learning-the-future-of-edtech/ Dear Startup Community, Over the last years, there has been a massive expansion of the education system with schooling and universities becoming more accessible to a wide range of people around the world. However, with a world of readily searchable knowledge at our fingertips, traditional learning systems are also challenged more than ever. Students are increasingly looking for new innovative ways to help them manage the formidable tools at their disposal, rather than memorizing every detail. A more "active learning" in a practical setting is increasingly becoming attractive, bringing us to the question of how our education system can equip the younger generation for the challenges of tomorrow? Together with our friends from Startup Grind Berlin and ThePowerMBA, we will look at the future of education and highlight how startups in that space can disrupt the ecosystem. We will look at this topic from an entrepreneurial and investor perspective and welcome our three great speakers: Together with our friends from Startup Grind Berlin, we will look at the future of education and highlight how startups in that space can disrupt the ecosystem.

Since March we’ve hosted 17 virtual events with some entertaining and inspiring speakers to showcase the incredible things going on in the Scottish entrepreneurial ecosystem. While we hope that these sessions have brought a sense of calm and connection through the pandemic, what we’ve really missed is interacting with each other at our in-person events, hearing stories, ideas, expertise and plans for the future over a glass of wine or a cup of tea(!) For our final event of 2020 we wanted to mix things up a bit and provide a virtual space for connection and reflection to catch up with old friends, make new ones and share grand ideas and learnings with each other. With that in mind, we’re excited to invite you to our end of year Social on Remo!

We’ll also be hosting quick talks and check-ins with SG community members on their 2020 takeaways.
