EdSurge Tech for Schools Summit Goes to St. Louis
Meet us in St. Louis! On October 17-18, 2014, EdSurge will be showcasing the newest classroom tools in the same city that hosted the 1904 World’s Fair. Judy Garland may no longer be waiting, but hundreds of innovative teachers will be, ready to explore new education technology at the St. Louis EdSurge Tech for Schools Summit.
Co-hosted by the Affton School District and Ritenour School District, and powered by ConnectED Learning STL with the support of the ED Collabitat at the University of Missouri - St. Louis College of Education, this Summit will bring entrepreneurs and Missouri educators together to the lovely and recently built Ritenour Auditorium.
Play. Explore. Listen. Share.
These are the themes of every EdSurge Summit, where we deliver a day of active, hands-on learning. Whether you’re searching for a personalized learning tool, or seeking real, unvarnished feedback, our Summits offer genuine learning opportunities for everyone.
“This EdSurge summit is bringing together the best parts of the edtech ecosystem in Saint Louis--our innovative teachers, supportive corporate partners, and the network of amplifiers that accelerate our growth,” shares Bob Dillon, Director of Innovation and Technology at the Affton School District. “Saint Louis is ripe for transformational change and hosting outstanding summits like this will continue our successful journey for kids and communities.”
