This month some of the fellows at 4.0 Schools are going to present/demo their edtech products and concepts. New Orleans is a hot bed for new ideas in education. This meetup will give you glimpse into what these edtech startups are working on and to share your technical expertise and feedback with them. Here's a bit about a few of the companies joining us:

"Classroom Blueprint is an online community where teachers share and discover best practices for classroom design. Teachers use our platform to publish their classroom spaces and the stories behind them, receiving colleagues' feedback and suggestions to further refine their setup. Leveraging this shared wisdom, teachers no longer need to waste precious time and resources recreating the wheel. Teachers -- new and experienced alike -- are able to efficiently find the best ideas and products to drive student achievement in their classrooms."

"Dash4Teachers is an iPhone app that allows Jedi teachers to create a daily list of parents to call and track data from those calls. Forgetting your clipboard or sticky notes, or even letting a student fall off your radar, will never be a problem again. Deborah Chang, who is a KIPP teacher that tested the app, commented, "This is the app I always wish I had! I'm using it now while teaching summer school, and it's been AMAZING. Imagine never having to worry about how to contact parents, again."

"Haystack EDU is best described as Consumer Reports meets match dot come for teacher jobs. The objective of the organization is to build a more efficient and effective market place for teacher jobs. The idea is to give both teachers and schools a better line of site into each other earlier in the hiring process so that they waste less time searching and ultimately end up with better matches."

"mangGO is a mobile phone application that helps parents easily track, reinforce, and reward their child's health habits and behaviors. Building healthy habits early in life significantly impacts a kid's immediate and long-term health. mangGO focuses on 4 health habits shown to make the greatest difference on a child's health: intake of fruits and veggies, soda consumption, screen time, and physical activity."

"My504HealthNet (name will likely change soon) is a mobile application that instantly links residents to low and no cost community based health care. In 3 clicks, users can find a doctor near them based on their insurance status, medical need, and location. Not only does linking people to a doctor improve their health outcomes, it largely saves money -- Interim LSU Hospital alone spent $13.1 million dollars last year in uncompensated care costs for preventable emergency room visits. In a region that ranks in the top 10% for density of primary care providers, My504HealthNet seeks to link area residents to these doctors to make us healthier and save money in the process."
