Event description

Description

This event is part of the Eastside Startup Series. Please join us with the upcoming events:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The adoption of new technology is transforming the way we teach and learn.

Startups in the EdTech sector are devoted to the development and application of software and tools intended to improve and promote education for all. EdTech has been enabled by connected classrooms and better bandwidth worldwide. Teachers are increasingly finding resources online, with decision making happening from the bottom up.

As the nature of work continues to change and become more complex, there is a constant need of up-skilling. What we teach, how we teach and the interactive tools students use to learn, are shifting and providing enticing opportunities for education entrepreneurs to apply their skills to an area with a true global impact.

At this event we will explore:

  • The market trends and what world-class EdTech looks like today
  • The size of the growing market and where the opportunities lie for startups, plus
  • How thought leaders are influencing the way education is being delivered.
