TechRI | Educators & Entrepreneurs Building Edtech Together, edtechri.com
EdTechRI is a meeting place for educators and entrepreneurs interested in coming together to solve the problems of education. Educators need technology. Entrepreneurs want to build it. The best way to do this is by coming together to discuss the specific needs of the classroom.
This journey started when a couple of us came together to do just that. Before long, we had teachers beta testing products, and entrepreneurs coming to pitch their creations. What started as an outgrowth of a teacher-based professional learning network grew to a series of educator-entrepreneur meetups, and sold-out functions state-wide.
In a climate where it’s not always easy to get the most innovative technology in the hands of those who need it, EdTechRI is on the forefront of doing just that.
Our mission is simple–start the conversation between the most innovative educators and the most visionary entrepreneurs in the nation. The rest will take care of itself.
