Summer is coming to a close and a new school year is upon us. We here at Technapex love back to school season as we anticipate the changes and innovations, new issues and new conversations that come up each year in the world of education. We’re eager to continue the conversation on the latest and greatest in edtech each fresh school year brings, so we figured, what better time than now to host another Technapex event?
Join us at at our very own TriplePoint San Francisco office at 115 Sansome Street on Thursday, September 12 from 6:30-9 p.m. for Revision Ready: Rewriting Education Publishing. We’re thrilled to announce our sixth Technapex event after hosting five sold-out events in New York and San Francisco. (Check out past events here.) Click here to purchase your tickets now.
Revision Ready: Rewriting Education Publishing is a happy hour event to discuss how the landscape of publishing in education is changing and the innovative companies working to improve it. The Revision Ready mixer will bring together educators, students, investors, executives, and entrepreneurs to discuss how technology has disrupted existing publishing models and made it possible to provide better resources to students.
Publishing in education has changed and improved drastically in the last few years due to the growing amount of open source material and OER (open educational resources), tools such as tablets and e-books that change the way we interact with the written word, and big data to help direct the right resources to the students who need them most.
We’ll explore all these changes and more at our mixer. We’re pleased to announce the companies appearing on our panel, who are on the front lines of 21st century publishing:
Junyo: Junyo leverages the power of data and anaylitcs to improve learning processes. Their new platform, EdLights, is a powerful market-intelligence platform delivering customized insights about the K12 educational market. Junyo will be discussing how EdLights’ analyical tools empower publishers and suppliers to better understand district and school needs, connect with K12 decisionmakers, and deliver the right content at the right time.
OpenStax College: OpenStax College is a nonprofit organization providing open-source, quality textbooks and learning materials to students. Their free textbooks are developed and peer-reviewd by educators to ensure they are readable, accurate and meet the scope and sequence requirements of student courses. OpenStax College will disscuss their efforts of improving access to high-quality learning materials by working with authors, developers, and partners to substantially lower costs for students.
Company representatives and the event’s moderator will be announced soon.
Drinks and light appetizers will be followed by the panel discussion. We’ll conclude with an open Q&A session, and guests are invited to stick around for drinks and mingling.
