Join us at the Community Partners fall kickoff, featuring a discussion on EdTech and a case study on code.org led by HBS Professor John J-H Kim.
It’s back to school for this alumni-only event presented by HBSCNY’s Community Partners!
There is tremendous excitement about the potential of technology to transform the way students learn and thrive. Early efforts have largely been focused on making the teaching process more efficient and convenient, but to truly fulfill the promise of EdTech, entrepreneurs must embrace more radical change.
Professor Kim will discuss three critical transformations that need to take place — first, integrating voluminous data from a broad variety of platforms such as social media, the cloud, school, and mobile platforms to truly personalize learning; second, unbundling the myriad roles of the teacher and leveraging technology in new ways to deliver a truly adaptive learning experience; and third, establishing new dimensions of performance needed for the 21st century.
Then it’s back to the HBS classroom as Professor Kim leads a case study discussion on code.org. How can code.org‘s management achieve its mission to reach more than 13,000 K-12 U.S. school districts with an introduction to computer programming?
Following the program, join Professor Kim and fellow alumni for a networking reception and learn about Community Partners, an HBSCNY program that provides nonprofit organizations with pro bono consulting advice from alumni volunteers. You’ll hear about Community Partners’ Skills Gap Initiative, New Venture Competition, other projects, and how you can become involved.
The code.org case will be emailed in advance to registrants.
Please note that no refunds will be issued.
