Imagine K12 Educator Day - February 8, 2013
Friday, February 8, 2013 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (PST)
Palo Alto, CA
You are invited to Imagine K12's Educational Product Demonstration Day
Friday, February 8, 2013
4:00 - 6:00 PM
395 Page Mill Road, Palo Alto (the AOL building)
Please join us on February 8th to meet the founders of nine new companies building tech tools for K-12 education. The event will kick off at 4:00 with hors d'oeuvres, informal conversation, and one-on-one demonstrations. At 4:30 the founders will take the stage to present their products, and at 5:30 we will transition back to conversation and demonstrations.
We encourage you to help us shape the direction of education technology by giving feedback to the entrepreneurs. If you like what you see, be one of the first to implement these new products in your classroom or district. Past attendees were among the first to preview tools that are now being used by millions of students and educators, including ClassDojo (real-time behavior management software), Remind101 (a safe, private text messaging platform for students and teachers), and Hapara (software that facilitates the use of Google Apps for Education).
The companies in Imagine K12's current program are building a diversity of tools to support the work of teachers, administrators, and schools, including:
- A free online math problem bank aligned to Common Core standards
- Simple real-time student polling/response technology for the classroom
- Paperless, tablet-based workflow for assigning, collecting and assessing student work
- An online platform for sharing and collaborating on class notes
The event is free, but space is limited, so kindly register at your earliest convenience to let us know that you will attend. We also encourage you to forward this link to other teachers and administrators who might like to attend: http://imaginek12.eventbrite.com.
