CBIC's December Tech Night Takeover...
The EdTech Revolution: Changing the Way We Teach and Learn
Advanced technologies and high rates of innovation are resulting in an abundance of new products, processes, and services that are changing how humans interrelate to each other, problem solve and learn. In the education sector, new technologies are changing the way we teach and comprehend all manner of subject matter. As classrooms adopt and grapple with these new technologies, one begins to wonder: what is the impact on education at large? What is the impact on teachers and students?
Join us for a lively discussion of these issues at the CBIC Tech Night Takeover on December 4th. The EdTech Revolution: Changing the Way We Teach and Learn brings together a distinguished panel of educators and innovators to look at how digital tools and technologies such as e-learning, MOOCs and analytics are driving innovation into (and out of) the classroom.
Joel Selzer of ArcheMedX will be facilitating discussion among Professor Michael Lenox of the Batten Institute at the Darden School of Business; Brien Walton, Chief Investment Officer of the Jefferson Education Accelerator; and Mike Benzian, Chief Product Officer at Teachstone.
