On November 17th, all TRETC attendees are welcome to attend the first ever-happy hour for ed tech entrepreneurs and educators before the TRETC pre-conference event to network with all TRETC attendees from 4:00PM – 5:30PM. Tom Vander Ark’s keynote presentation kicks off at 5:30pm. Networking around the bar continues at 6:30PM.
Space is limited to 450 attendees, and we expect this year’s conference to sell out. Please register early!
The theme for TRETC 2014 is Deeper Learning. We will kick the event off with a keynote speech from Tom Vander Ark from Getting Smart and Learn Capital. The day will continue with 28 other ed-tech / Deeper Learning focused sessions. Topics include game based learning, ed-tech admin solutions, classroom tools, STE(A)M learning, and early childhood tech strategies. This conference is perfect for everyone involved in the educational technology and STE(A)M education movements.
TRETC 2014 will feature a three-session Venture In track. Here, ed-tech entrepreneurs will learn from funders, explore funding options, and pick the brains of the professionals. Speakers include Tom Vander Ark addressing the investment strategy of Learn Capital, a panel featuring Chevron, Grable, and Benedum discussing funding from foundation sources, and a third speaker to be announced in the coming weeks.
The Three Rivers Educational Technology Conference is a joint conference run by the Allegheny Intermediate Unit, local education leaders, and the Pittsburgh Technology Council.
