First! I haven't seen who the teams are yet, but congratulations to the projects and talented people who made it into the EdTech accelerator. May you get what you wanted out of the experience.
We did not make the cut this time, but are working hard on a bit of a runner-up prize.
Loogla needs the help of teams committed to EdTech and learning in general. We stand to receive a $100,000 grant to improve language and literacy education but need to get the word out. Vote! Share! Like!
Check out our video and vote at voteliteracy.com. If language and literacy are things you feel passionate about, *please* help us by spreading the word. We are the ONLY educational startup in the contest, and winning the grant would guarantee that all our hard work sees the light of day. Startups are a community, and we're happy to help you guys in any way we can.Wednesday, May 22 19:42
Hey All, part of teaching is breaking down preconceptions to allow new understanding to emerge. Here's an article I contributed to Mind Body Green today on 3 big myths our culture has about meditation music. It also speaks to any preconceived ideas you may have about meditation, generally: www.mindbodygreen.com/0-9117/the-3-biggest-myths-about-meditation-music.htmlComment Friday, Apr 26 20:13
The Kaplan EdTech Accelerator has partnered with TechStars to create a three month intensive, deep immersion program for ten education startups. The program is held on-site in New York, NY and will run from June-August 2013. Startups will have access to top-notch industry mentors, resources and round-the-clock support as well as the chance to pitch to angel investors and venture capitalists at the end of the program.
The Kaplan EdTech Accelerator is held in Kaplan’s New York office, a state-of-the-art facility located in a prime location in Manhattan’s West Village neighborhood, within walking distance of some of New York’s best restaurants, bars and shops. more
