The K-12 EdTech conference season is in full swing. The year started with FETC, then TCEA, SXSWedu, ISTE last month and we’re still in the midst of our Principal’s Conference coverage. Next week though, the spotlight turns to technology in higher education.
While many of the themes cross over from K-12 to higher ed, on the higher ed side we’re still faced with much larger deployments and students that are even more immersed in technology as they head to college campuses across the country and around the world.
