Ed Tech Collaborative 2021

While the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the cancellation of many physical events over the past year, the ability to pivot from in-person to digital provides many benefits. Our previous Audio Collaborative and Pro AV Collaborative conferences successfully highlighted the ability to share quality content with a global audience, all from the comfort of our own home.

Navigating Change in a Hybrid World

With the support of our Title Sponsor Intel, Ed Tech Collaborative delivered a range of engaging presentations and panel sessions, brought together by a wealth of industry thought leaders and innovators. While the virtual curtain to our event has now closed, the two-day conference is still available to view on demand.
