Evolving Communities: Connectivity in Education


How do educational institutions build communities around learning, fundraising, and support for students, parents, and teachers? In this session, we explore how tech and digital are shaping connectivity in education—now and in the next 3-5 years. Featuring voices from university to K-12, educational institutes to tech companies, this panel will discuss the opportunities and challenges for building and empowering education-based communities in the age of ever-on social media, AR, and smartphones.
