StartUp Weekend EDU update

Part of the idea for ed-invent came from the Richard and Cambridge Assessment’s involvement in StartUp Weekend EDU London held in January.
We really love the StartUp Weekend EDU ethos and try to follow all their events, the most recent of which was StartUp Weekend EDU Toronto (Aug. 9-11.). The 99 attendees formed into 12 teams and the winners were:
Learning Loop – connecting families to educators
Smarty Pants – an app to turn any game into a learning experience
FieldR – Find Fun Field Trips Fast
Over the next few months there will be StartUp Weekend EDU’s in:
Perth 6 Sept.
Chicago 20 Sept.
New York 25 Oct.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there will be another StartUp Weekend EDU in the UK in 2013, however if you are a teacher in England there are still plenty of places left at the ed-invent events in Manchester (Oct.), Birmingham (Nov.) and London (Dec.).
