Are you trying to market or sell your product to teachers? Learn how they choose what ed tech products to use in their classrooms, what their favorite ed tech tools are, and what products they would like you to build. Gain insider knowledge from a high school physics teacher and a high school English teacher, both of whom have extensive experience teaching and using technology in their classrooms.

This class will be highly interactive and limited to 20 students to ensure that you have ample time to both interact with the instructors and your peers.

*Service providers are welcome to attend, but we have a strict no selling policy during classes.*
