EdSurge Summit Heads to Baltimore

Gooooood morning,Baltimore!

In conjunction with anawesome coalition of educators in Baltimore, EdSurge is thrilled to announcethat we will be bringing an EdSurge Tech for Schools Summit to Baltimore onFebruary 22.

UPDATE: The event will be held at the Baltimore Four Seasons hotel

Headliner: Jim Shelton, Deputy Secretary of Education, will be our keynote speaker.  

We aim to make this eventa special moment for educators from the Baltimore region to have a chance totire-kick some of the latest and most innovative software and technologyavailable to support learning.

The event follows in atradition that began in 2013 in Chicago, where the Education TechnologyStartup Collaborative showed how teachers and techies can collaborate and create common ground. Rhode Island’s Department of Education and the HighlanderInstitute did something similar onOctober 5. Nextthe fun came toSilicon Valley in November at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View,CA.

Now it’s Baltimore’sturn. Co-sponsors for this event are the Baltimore Education InnovationConsortium, the BaltimoreCity Public Schools, Baltimore County Public SchoolsHoward County Public Schools and the MarylandSociety for Educational Technology (MSET).

Mostimportant: The heart of this event is about dialogue—a time for educators andentrepreneurs to share what works and what they need. We'llalways treasure the words of educators such as Eileen Craviotto of PeabodyCharter School, who said: "I have been teaching for 24 years and it wasthe first conference I have gone to that I really felt the spirit ofcollaboration between the companies and the teachers!"

Best of all: the event is free for all full-time educators.

Here are the key details.
