About This Event


TECH AND...is a monthly event series where we host thought-leaders from a specific industry and explore new intersections between their field and technology.


TECH AND EDUCATION


In September we are partnering with LearnLaunch to explore the intersection of Education and Technology.


Why It Matters:


Around the world and here at home, entrepreneurs and educators are redefining education with democratized learning models, custom education pathways, and innovative methods for students to learn 21st-century skills. We are entering a new education paradigm - one that is hyper-focused on learning by doing, skill building for a new economy, and accessibility via online and offline community platforms.


With the pace in which technology is changing, education is no longer reserved for k-12 and university students. We are quickly becoming the generation of lifelong learning and the way we absorb information and train and skill up our workforce is continuously evolving. Meet local startups and influencers focused on upskilling and workforce development programs for students of all ages, and hear how they predict education will impact our economic future.


What You’ll Take Away:


- Hear about trends and innovations in the education space
- Learn how the education paradigm has shifted
- Understand how education is linked to economic development
- Hear what Boston-based startups are doing to improve the local workforce through education and training
