#SharkTankEDU is an event series hosted by the NYC Department of Education’s iZone to bring educators and edtech startups together in a collaborative space. iZone hosts monthly #SharkTankEDU events that bring together educators and edtech startups to to review emerging tech solutions against real challenges in school communities. #SharkTankEDU provides a safe space for educators to critically evaluate new edtech products and provide early-stage feedback that helps edtech startups and entrepreneurs develop more responsive products for education.
This is a special edition of #SharkTankEDU featuring edtech companies in the Dreamit accelerator. If you haven’t seen the show, Shark Tank, this is how the event format works. There are a few edtech product demos in front of reviewers (a.k.a. “Sharks”). The “Sharks” then have 20 minutes for interactive Q&A with the presenters before completing a feedback form.
