Transforming EDU at CES 2016 Showcases the Future of EdTech
This week, techies around the world have traveled near and far to see the gizmos and gadgets on display at CES 2016. Based in Las Vegas, the world’s landmark tech trade show has made headlines this year for hoverboards, drones, and virtual reality video games, as well as for the number of celebrities and tech big wigs present. But it’s not all fun and games: the Transforming EDU portion of CES focuses on edtech companies and the different ways they’re paving the way for the future of learning.
Although the edtech exhibits have been up since CES started on Wednesday, the main event kicked off today with the Transforming EDU Summit. Following the blueprints of most edtech conferences these days, the conversation points cover digital learning games, online course accreditation, robot teachers, and other trending edtech topics. Speakers include John Katzman, CEO of Noodle, Jonathan Finkelstein, founder & CEO of Credly, Steven Mackenzie of LEGO Education, and Don Burton, founder of EDGE edtech (whom we interviewed at his own edtech “unconference” last month.)
