Welp, it’s been a year, hasn’t it? Everybody, including the EdTech-averse, has had to go all-in on EdTech all at once. And it’s exposed some potholes. Some we knew were there, others we learned to live with and forgot about, and still others we didn’t see coming. Now is a good time to think about lessons learned as we look toward future changes, both foreseen and unforeseen, both fast and slow.
So we’re going to chat with venture capitalist and friend of e-Literate Matt Greenfield, Managing Partner at the ReThink Education venture capital firm. In a prior life, Matt was an English professor at CUNY, Columbia, and Bowdin. So he’s seen the world from both sides of the EdTech company/academic line. We’re all going to chat with Matt about the potholes that need filling.
This will be the last Blursday Social of 2020, so don’t miss the thrilling season finale!
Remember, Blursday Socials are much more conversation and participation than broadcast. Think of it as being like trivia night at your favorite bar. There will be some organized activity, but a lot of it will be just connecting with friends. Some folks will be regulars, others will be semi-regulars, and still others will drop in occasionally. They start every Thursday at 4 PM Eastern Time. The bar closes at 5:30.
The dress code is casual; BYOB.
