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, please join us for our EdTechRI Meetup on Wednesday, November 29th! 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 truly meet the needs of our students. 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?!


Presenting companies will be announced soon!


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 high-performing 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 brainstorm ways in which these products can be enhanced. The Highlander Institute has been convening these meetups for 5 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
