CER is proud to present with Stoà, the most important and historic management school in the South of Italy, The U.S.–Italia Education Innovation Festival, April 27–29, 2020, at Stoà, steps from Pompeii and overlooking the Bay of Naples.
The U.S.–Italia Education Innovation Festival will be the first global Ed Tech event in Italy, with a concentration on innovations and technologies that amplify, engage and educate the world’s students in the arts and sciences. Our focus will be on exploring, uncovering and connecting with technologies and innovative practices already being increasingly applied across the globe to learning, teaching, and in the workforce, bringing us each day more quickly than the last into the 21st Century. Together, we will move from early education, through K–12 and Higher Ed and across the Workforce, breaking up the silos to build continuum of education models that cut through all levels of education, preparing us for work, life and explosive change–across the globe.
Gather with the experts, investors, entrepreneurs and start-ups from one of the world’s most beautiful, culturally rich, scientifically pioneering countries in the world. Our host region, Campania, and its most famous city, Naples, home to the first Greek settlements, is widely considered the epicenter of world history and scientific invention, beauty and culture.
Area9 Group CEO Ulrik Juul Christensen joins Reality Check to talk about learning science and personalization, in a run up to his keynote. From its origins in the 1980s to covering breakthrough new developments in technology, Artificial Intelligence and data science are fueling better, faster learning across the globe. How, why, and more about what it means for K to gray is a must listen.
The U.S.-Italia Ed Innovation Festival will link the entrepreneurs of the US and Italy in an exploratory new Western civilization partnership for education. A successful first event may lead to the creation of an Italian-based accelerator and incubator for Italian and other European start-ups.
If you’ve ever been to New York’s EdTech Week, or the ASU+GSV Summit, you know that there is no shortage of work that can and needs to be done, if only we had more time to showcase and learn from one another. With these colleagues and others, we aspire to work collaboratively to highlight and host the best that both our countries offer, and welcome innovators from every nation.
The Festival will drive new markets and exponential growth of pathbreaking innovations in education and demonstrate what can occur when new partnerships, with new countries with their unique talents and attributes engaged, are seated equally at the education innovation table.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive at least a day in advance. Several educational and cultural experiences will be provided, including visits to Pompeii and Oplontis, as well as food and wine tasting events.
