The Silverback Team
Rudi Lewis, COO of Silverback Learning Solutions is heading back to Austin to speak at the EdTech Austin Meetup on Wednesday, March 27. Along with Bringup, FastFig and DevJumpstart, Silverback will follow up on conversations begun at SxSWEdu, discuss why the “Ed” in edtech is so important and delve into the messages created around funding opportunities.
The EdTech Austin Meetup is a hub for the amazing keynotes, panel discussions, edtech mixers, member spotlights, and hands-on learning experiences that inspire teachers, entrepreneurs, technologists, education reformers, and ed-tech enthusiasts to connect, collaborate, and innovate. Austin Meetup members consist of people whose careers and interests lie somewhere at the intersection of education and technology. They meet to explore this confluence, to learn about the latest technologies that are supporting teachers, and to hear from teachers about the problems in education that must be fixed now.
At the Austin meetups, the community is challenged to think through ways in which technology can enhance and promote real learning to positively transform education, and we know there are amazing education advocates all around the world with a similar mission. The aim is to share and engage with advocates around the world to realize positive systemic (or disruptive) change. You can join The EdTech Meetup virtually by following them on Twitter at @edtechaustin and join in ongoing conversations by using #edtechaustin.
