EdSurge 2015 Personal Statements

Educators, entrepreneurs and thought leaders offer their edtech predictions for the new year

EdSurge 2015 Personal Statements

Although many of us are penning fresh resolutions this week, perhaps none are reflecting on the past year quite as feverishly as high school seniors, scrambling to finish up college application essays before the new year. So this year, we asked thought leaders to share their outlooks on 2014 and predictions about 2015—with a twist. These educators, entrepreneurs and writers framed their thoughts as a response to some of the finest college application prompts. Take a break from your own resolution-making, and read the personal statements of thought leaders—including Google Education's Jaime Casap, Teach For America's Wendy Kopp, and Scholastic's Margery Mayer—below. 

Got your own reflections and predictions? Tweet them with the #edtech2015 hashtag: If you're reading this, we know you have as many thoughts as we do on what the next year will bring in education technology. And we want to hear them.
