EdSurge Tech Leaders Circle: Salt Lake City, UT
NOTE: The information below has been pulled directly from the EdSurge Eventbrite posting. It has been reposted here in an effort to spread the word among tech leaders in Utah. Please consider attending.
EdSurge, in collaboration with the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative, is traveling around the country to learn the best practices from education leaders currently working in K-12 schools and district offices.
This inaugural event will focus on personalized learning. What is personalized learning? Is it just another buzzword? How are you thinking about PL? Does technology play a role? It will be a night of collaboration, where the focus will be on learning from each other. You should walk away with new connections and a wealth of new ideas.
EdSurge is hosting this event to learn from you, report on your stories around personalized learning, and look for potential writers for the EdSurge network.
Refreshments and light appetizers will be served.
Come connect with folks from all over the Salt Lake City area, engage in great conversation, and learn from other awesome educators!
