LearnBop's CEO Bharani Rajakumar wrote a blog post from the ASU +GSV Education Innovation Summit in Phoenix, Arizona last week. According to the summit's official website, the goal of meeting was "to become the fulcrum of activity and influence on the current and future states of global education. We're creating a platform for advancement, highlighted by the world's premier events and online conversations surrounding the Knowledge Economy."
Here is Bharani's post:
Last week LearnBop was announced as a nominee for the prestigious Return on Education (ROE) award. Nominees are announced and recognized by the Education Innovation Summit hosted by Arizona State University and Global Silicon Valley (GSV) advisors.
LearnBop was one of a handful of companies selected out of over 350 nominees to be recognized at the conference. We would not have been nominated without your hard work and support The folks at the conference want to make financial investments in ideas that educators and entrepreneurs develop to improve the learning outcomes of students. One of the investors that we had the opportunity to meet is Mark Cuban, whom you may recognize from the show Shark Tank or as an owner of the Dallas Mavericks.
Teachers, students, administrator, and entrepreneurs were all represented at the Summit by people who are actively working to identify solutions that teachers can use to improve the classroom learning experience. We are working hard to ensure that the voices of educators are heard among the most influential people who want to improve our education system.
Your work, feedback and opinions matter to us. LearnBop's nomination for the ROE award, as well as all we've accomplished so far this year, is a reflection of all your hard work and dedication to teaching and learning. Thank you for all that you do!
