Join us as KCedu and the Lean Lab partner up at EduHub, a co-working space for education and youth-related startups. Network with genius educators, business partners, and other interested folks as you eat and drink, learn and network.
This week is a special EdTech Edition, sponsored by the Mozilla Gigabit Fund. We will be featuring local edtech founders as they demo their creations to transform the classroom. They will lead discussions on the future of edtech, VR and AR.
When you arrive, grab a snack and check out the whiteboard where participants create the schedule on the fly! Want to share something? Want to get feedback from others on a topic? In addition to the featured guests, as an attendee, you can throw your idea up in one of the squares for small group breakout conversations. For example:
- Want some Twitter tips/help or want to learn some networking apps, like Voxer--add it to the schedule. You'll get lots of help/input.
- Want to talk gamification? You'll find someone to talk with.
- Find some interested parties to co-write a grant. EdHub has several offices for us to spread out and share/discuss. :)
After introductions of featured guests at 6pm, we go into an Edcamp/Unconference format in two fast-paced, 20 minute breakout sessions. Stay in one group or sample more than one discussion. We come back together as a group at 7:00 for final announcements and then continue conversations at EduHub or at a nearby establishment.
This format is about active small group networking and relationship building, not passive listening. CHOICE and VOICE! You'll be happy you plugged into KC's vibrant educator network.
