The Education Technology Innovation Summit will feature 28 experts who will discuss new themes in education.


Educators and industry experts will gather at the Education Technology Innovation Summit (ETIS) on July 25 to discuss new ideas and products in education technology. The conference will feature 28 experts who will discuss new themes in education, such as mobile learning, the educational technology ecosystem, game-based learning, educational technology startups, and learning in the cloud.

In his keynote speech, New Milford High School principal Eric Sheninger will address changes that must occur in schools to create a culture in which social media and new technologies are ubiquitous. Sheninger also will focus on the pillars of digital leadership and strategies that educators can use to harness the power of education technology.

Andrew Coy, the executive director of Baltimore's Digital Harbor Foundation, which aims to help students discover passions in the tech field and give them resources to succeed, will give the afternoon keynote speech on the importance of educational technology for technology education.

"The conference is aiming to be a catalyst in bringing together the companies and individuals in education technology with the school systems and teachers that need to use it," says ETIS host and Mindgrub CEO Todd Marks.
