Event description

Description

Are you an educator looking to implement blended or personalized learning?

Are you a parent or community member interested in learning about educational technology?

Are you an entrepreneur seeking to connect with champions of change?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, please join us for our Back-to-School EdTechRI Meetup on Thursday, September 27th! Each Meetup features several new companies and entrepreneurs in the world of educational technology -- specifically ones that want to connect with Rhode Island educators and community members to receive feedback and improve their products. We're looking for innovative teachers, administrators, parents, and anyone else who is interested in learning more about the latest in edtech and is excited to pilot new products in their classrooms and homes.

The most important part? FREE beer, wine, and food for all attendees! Who could ask for a better night?!


What is EdTechRI?

The goal of EdTechRI Meetups is for entrepreneurs and educators to connect and work together to bring the best of innovation into our schools. All too often, these two groups operate independently to solve the same problem -- enhance student learning through blended learning. By bringing the business and education worlds together, we hope to foster discussions and partnerships that will ultimately lead to a better experience for our students.


Why EdTechRI?

The state of Rhode Island is blazing a trail in education, with the goal of becoming the first fully personalized state in the country. Our state is full of incredible educators who are seeking new ways to implement blended and personalized learning in their classrooms and help our students reach mastery. RI teachers are eager to meet with entrepreneurs to discuss the growing field, observe new tools, and offer feedback to enhance these products. The Highlander Institute has been convening these meetups for 6 years now (started in 2012!) -- if you haven't come to one yet, join us for this upcoming meetup!


Evening Agenda:

4:00 - 4:30 pm: Attendees mingle with free beer, wine, and food

4:30 - 5:00 pm: Companies pitch their product (3 min/each)

5:00 - 5:50 pm: Educators move between company tables to observe products and offer feedback

5:50 - 6:00 pm: Closing


EdTechRI Meetups are drop-in events. Join us between 4 and 6 pm as we mingle, share, and connect with each other to enhance the future of education in our state!


Cheers,

Highlander Institute
