The Listen Edition team traveled to Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts this week for a two-day conference run by MassCUE. It’s an annual educational technology conference to help teachers integrate technology into the classroom. Thousands of teachers, technology specialists, librarians, administrators, and superintendents attended the conference to learn more about topics such as Blended Learning, 1:1 strategies, and more. Listen Edition was showcased with more than thirty other startups in a special LearnLaunch area. Learn Launch is a group dedicated to bringing together the best of edtech startups.
Listen Edition learned from conversations with educators and stakeholders they are looking for new innovative ways to address the Common Core State Standards. Listen Edition addresses the listening standard to give educators a way to focus on critical listening skills with technology in the classroom. Teachers from all subjects, ranging from technology, to science, to reading, all saw the power of using public radio stories in the classroom. Thanks for signing up to try out Listen Edition in your classroom!
