For this roundtable discussion, we gathered a group of people passionate about education—leaders in technology, founders of companies working on revolutionizing education at all levels, and a recent graduate from UT Austin who is an aspiring entertainment professional.
Each perspective highlighted stories of the real people who work within education and the common theme throughout our dialogue was the need to build and design educational systems and products around the people at the heart of learning: teachers and students.
It was such a pleasure and great thanks to the participants:
Laura Malcolm, co-founder of Civitas Learning
Suzi Sosa, a co-founder of Verb
Rahalia Senior, a recent graduate of UT Austin
Valerie Schreiner, the Chief Product Officer for Turnitin
Nathan Gebhard, a co-founder of Roadtrip Nation
