Attended two great events this past week!

I attended two great events this week, the LearnLaunch Institutes Accelerator Showcase and the EdSurge Tech for Schools Summit!

The EdSurge event on Saturday, June 13th was a great opportunity to learn about the new products from edtech companies from around the country! I was introduced to three or four new edtech companies and their products which I hope I can try out with students next year.

Wednesday Evening, June 10th I attended the LearnLaunch Institutes Accelerator Showcase. In addition to being able to meet with and learn about several other of the newest edtech start-up companies in Boston, I received the added benefit of hearing the featured speaker Katrina Stevens, Senior Advisor at the Office of Educational Technology, U.S Department of Education.

Both of these events were great opportunities to meet with companies developing edtech solutions and provide suggestions for how they can make their products even better by matching them with the real needs of classroom teachers and make plans for using technologies in schools.
I hope I will be able to attend more events like these in the future and help bring great edtech start-up companies and their products to Burlington to enhance student learning!
