EdTech RI Meetup

5/14/2013 4:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Lovers of EdTech!

Join us Tuesday, May 14th for our final Educator and Entrepreneur Meetup, a celebration of educators and the growing value of education technology in our classrooms.

EdTech is blowing up and Rhode Island is taking the lead in a lot of exciting ways. High performing teachers are creating new and innovative ways to implement education technology in their classrooms, and EdTech entreprenuers are breaking new ground developing tools to empower teachers, admins, and schools to move farther faster!

Since November 2012 the Highlander Institute has been convening educators from RI and entrepreneurs from across the country at Tazza Cafe on the second Tuesday of each month to talk about the edtech field, to observe new tools, and to give each other feedback on how these tools could be enhanced or improved to meet classroom needs.

Tuesday, May 14th we are throwing a big party for our final meetup. We will be hosting it in the front room at the Rhode Island Foundation. Eight edtech companies are coming from an edtech accelerator in New York City called Socratic Labs to present in our newly created edtech Shark Tank. We will also have 2-3 teams from RI's own Betaspring incubator presenting as well.

Our educators won't be investing in these products with money, but many will decide to give these products their time or mental energy, which in many ways is even more valuable than money for new edtech products.

Socratic Labs and the Highlander Institute are co-sponsoring this event, which is free to all.

This meetup is a chance for both EdTech entrepreneurs and educators to get together to talk about where the field is heading, swap ideas and perhaps change the education space over a glass of wine!

Looking forward to seeing you at the RI Foundation next month!
