This panel, and many others like it which Educelerate facilitates each year, are immensely important. Why? Because whenever a bunch of smart, forward-looking folks who are passionate about education get together, it simply means one thing: the students we all strive to help are going to derive benefit in some way.
Educelerate does an amazing job of bringing together companies that are leading the charge when it comes to innovation in Edtech. They sort of organize the fellowship that’s taking the ring to Mordor. This is actually the second year in row that we’ve been part of the Chicago panel/fellowship. We’re excited to compare notes and discuss how we can explore some of the technologies and innovations companies like Uber, Airbnb and TaskRabbit are already using, to create value for students.
It should be a great conversation with some very talented people, so grab your tickets and come hang out with us! Here’s a little more about who will be there.
