I’m rather excited to announce the EdTech Innovation conference in Calgary, Alberta, May 1-3, 2013.
The conference has a Canadian focus, but we welcome international attendees who are interested in EdTech innovation:
EdTech Innovation is a national conference, hosted by Athabasca University in Calgary, May 1 -3, 2013, bringing together startups, researchers, and technology purchasers and venture capitalists. The conference will profile innovative research being conducted in Canadian universities as well as startups that are developing new technologies, products, and services. Connecting researchers with startups will enable new forms of innovation and partnership opportunities in growing Canada’s educational ecosystem.
Call for demonstrations:
