SFRails: Lessons on Ed-Tech
This talk was recorded at the SF Ruby on Rails meetup at The Climate Corporation last week. Jeff Scheur will give a lightning talk on what he's learned developing an educational site that teaches students grammar/writing skills. He'll share insights on how to avoid pitfalls in ed-tech that get the better of many engineers and discuss what technological advances make him hopeful for the future of education.
How to Engineer Products for Students and Teachers — Winning in Ed-Tech
Bio: Jeff Scheur founded NoRedInk.com, which helps students improve their grammar/writing skills using adaptive learning and personalization. He won NBC's $75,000 Innovation Challenge in September, and his company is funded by top-tier investors. In a former life, he taught high school English for 8 years, and after grading 15,000 English essays himself, he began leveraging technology to help students eliminate "red ink" from their papers.
