South by Southwest Edu Learning Technology Summit hosted by Dr. Joan Hughes
Slow Pitch: an EdTech Design Think Tank
An interactive think tank and pitch session where startups, mentors and the audience will dialogue and hone startups’ products so that they will transform learning and penetrate K-12 school markets. The think tank aims to slow down the typical pitch to increase constructive dialogue and learning. Selected edtech startups will provide demos, evidence of real/potential impact, and marketing/monetization plans prior to SXSWedu. The summit will cultivate a focused, generative dialogue between the startups, the 10+ educator, research, and business mentors, and the audience in demos, targeted mentoring, and pitch style discussions. An amazing set of mentors, including experts in research, innovation, venture capital, entrepreneurship, teaching, teachers, and learning, are eager to engage. Audience participation will be curated throughout with twitter, polls, and open-mic opportunities. This design think tank will help emerging edtech advance and innovate.
