European Schoolnet welcomes back two major EdTech innovators whose new companies join the Future Classroom Lab
Technology plays an important role in schools, helping to transform teaching and learning. Educational technology, also known as ‘EdTech', depends, as many other sectors, on innovation. Innovation often comes from visionary thinkers with entrepreneurial mindsets who dare to put their ideas into practice. Two such people are Nancy Knowlton, founder of SMART Technologies, and Tony Cann, Promethean's founder, who joined the Future Classroom Lab at the outset. Today, European Schoolnet is delighted to welcome them both back to the Future Classroom Lab with their new companies, set to be important players on the educational technology scene.
The newsletter includes news from the Future Classroom Lab, related EC-funded and other European Schoolnet projects, including Novigado, EDU Regio, ITELab, and many more. The newsletter is issued approximately four times a year, in English.
