Augmented reality lessons, one-to-one language tutoring via video and an app that helps students create portfolios of their extracurricular work will be among the highlighted startups during the NY Edtech Week, "a global education innovation festival in New York City celebrating education entrepreneurship," slated to take place at New York University from Dec. 19-21.
Although not a full week, the program aims to combine TED-style talks, shark tanks, panels and a pitch session from the nine teams of education innovators who have gone through the program, which is managed by StartEd Companies.
Fresh from the bootcamp are:
Panel topics range from early childhood, to higher ed and corporate learning to big data accountability, on December 20, which will be moderated by EdSurge's Betsy Corcoran and include Bart Epstein, CEO of the Jefferson Education Accelerator.
Tickets are priced as high as $995 at the door. EdSurge, which is a media partner of the event, has 10 free passes that we're eager to share. First come, first serve to those dropping us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line: CU in NY!
