Robot Rules: New Applications for the Edtech Classroom

June 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$25

Even though inspiring learning through the use of robotics isn’t a new concept, there are new applications being developed across educational environments. The question is: Do you have to worry about robots taking your job or do you simply need to be aware of the new applications for using robotics in the K-12, higher ed and adult education space?

In this session, participants will:
* Analyze the disruption that robots are causing in society, as well as the edtech community
* Examine the expanded ways that robots are inspiring learning
* Explore the limitations that exist for using robots in the classroom
* Outline the products, curriculum and products that are making waves in the edtech marketplace
* Identify opportunities that exist for entrepreneurs looking to get into the robotic edtech marketplace
