Summary

#LAUNCHedu

Collaboration between teachers, administrators and entrepreneurs in the development of vibrant goods and services is an essential ingredient for meaningful improvements in teaching and learning. In a special session, moderated by Fast Company Magazine and Hechinger Report writer Anya Kamenetz, a panel of respected education practitioners will share and discuss their reactions to the ten up-and-coming education startups featured in the 2014 LAUNCHedu competition. This post-pitch session will help discern the “must haves” from the “nice to haves,” exploring critical needs that exist in the education market today from an educator’s perspective.

Make plans to attend the LAUNCHedu: Educator Insights session during SXSWedu to join the conversation, exploring the future of collaboration between entrepreneurs and educators.
