Why does education need to change and how will it happen?
That’s the topic of the “Reboot: Education” event tonight, May 20, in Washington, D.C. Leaders from Pearson, Coursera, 2U, the US Department of Education, Watchitoo and more will be both on hand and brought in via the Web to discuss how the industry is changing and how they are responding to the challenges. The live stream of the event, powered by Watchitoo will be live from 7:45pm-9pm ET http://1776dc.com/rebooteducation/.
The event, hosted by DC tech incubator, 1776dc, is preceded by a fireside chat led by Jeff Selingo, Chronicle of Higher Education editor and author of “College (Un)Bound.” It will include 250 confirmed on-site guests from the U.S. Department of Education, regional universities and Capitol Hill staff.
Speakers will have the opportunity to address the question of why education needs to change, and how that can be accomplished, either live on-site or brought in virtually through Watchitoo. Online viewers of “Reboot: Education” will be able to view the conversation, ask questions and post comments on their social networks.
The live stream of the event, powered by Watchitoo will be live from 7:45pm-9pm ET.
