August 13th EDU Connect Summit Recap

On August 13, 2013, representatives from Ed-Trust West, Education Pioneers, Full Circle Fund, NewSchools Venture Fund, Clayton Christensen Institute and Digital Promises came together to host an Education Summit, “Accelerating Learning for All Students Through The Transformative Power of Technology,” to discuss how the Common Core State Standards and integration of digital learning in classrooms are transforming – and to help stakeholders in the education realm prepare for that change.

Our very own Member and Education enthusiast and expert (and now Fellow at Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford University), Kim Jacobson, led a session entitled "Building our Network," as one of seven insightful sessions available to attendees. Over 100 executive leaders and superintendents actively participated in this state-wide summit and helped discuss the rapidly-evolving future of K-12 education.
