This month we want to have a conversation that centers around technology innovation for educators. As teachers who are in the classrooms we experience a range of "pain points" on a daily basis. What are the problems in your classroom or at your school or in your district that need to be solved? How do you set about creating a solution via technology? The "maker" mentality where teachers are crafting grassroots solutions to the challenges they face are a large part of this current wave of EdTech innovation.
For this EdTechSV event will be featuring EdTech companies founded by teachers. They will be talking about their experiences as teachers who grew their companies based on challenges they were facing or pain points they were experiencing.
