LA Ed Tech Meetup


Last night we attended the first EdTech LA Meetup at Coworkk (yes, it is spelled “Coworkk”) in Beverly Hills.  We met a lot of great people and heard some interesting presentations about some of the projects that other members of the group we we’re working.

So what is the EdTech LA Meetup you ask?

The EdTech LA Meetup is the hub for the amazing keynotes, panel discussions, edtech mixers, member spotlights, and hands-on learning experiences that inspire teachers, entrepreneurs, technologists, education reformers, and ed-tech enthusiasts to connect, collaborate, and innovate. We meet to explore various topics at the intersection of education and technology, to learn about the latest technologies that are supporting teachers, and to hear from teachers about the problems in education that must be fixed now.

At the LA meetups, we challenge our community to think through ways in which technology can enhance and promote real learning to positively transform education, and we know there are amazing education advocates all around the world with a similar mission.

The group decided to get together monthly, so if you’re in the LA area and are interested in educational technology, we’d love for you to Septembers meeting.  Just join our meetup group to receive an invite to our next upcoming event.  They even provide dinner and drinks for everyone who attends, what more could you ask for?

Below are a few pictures of the event.  We hope you can join us for our September meetup!
