Real Examples: Teacher-Entrepreneur Collaboration

Creating better EdTech means fostering collaboration between teachers and EdTech entrepreneurs. At SXSW 2015, the team behind the Twitter community #edtechbridge asked educators and EdTech creators how to extend collaboration beyond 140 characters. This year, a panel of #edtechbridge community members will share their experiences working together outside of Twitter. The panel comprises two teachers and two EdTech developers who have forged mutually beneficial relationships that influenced the development and successful classroom integration of products. Panelists will give advice on navigating, understanding, and respecting teacher and EdTech cultures in order to make great EdTech together.
