Event description


Silicon Valley educators and entrepreneurs will gather for a genuine exchange around edtech tools for schools. Educators will gain exposure to cutting edge tech tools and put questions to the founding teams behind them. For more info, visit the event page

This event is designed for educators - including teachers, administrators, and tech specialists. Please feel free to extend this invitation to your fellow colleagues and those from neighboring schools! Space is limited, so please RSVP by Nov 1, 2013!

NOTE: If you are not a K-20 teacher, professor, administrator, etc., but are still interested in attending, please contact tyler@edsurge.com

Given the fast-moving changes in technology, understanding what tools make the most sense for teachers and schools can be challenging. Not only is it critical for educators to be exposed to the latest technology, but it's also important that educator voices are heard by those who are building the tools.
