Women Using Technology to Impact the Classroom
With one foot firmly rooted in the classroom, our panelists are challenging edtech companies to thinking longer and harder about the benefits and opportunities of integrating technology into schools. They are risk-takers and early-adopters of education technologies that have changed the way they taught students and they now advise other startups to think differently about how new standards, expectations, flexibility and assessments are changing the dynamic within school walls and extending the classroom outside of them.
Our panelists will challenge the discourse that education technology is hard to integrate at both K12 and higher education levels. They will tell the stories of their own experience and the types of teachers that inspire them. Expect a lively discussion of inspiring best practices, and expect to leave with questions of “how can I make this happen for my students?” spinning through your head.
