Last week, we shared a video of George Mason University President Dr. Ángel Cabrera discussing the challenges facing many education institutions today. Dr. Cabrera was addressing the crowd attending the 2014 Mid-Atlantic Growth Conference, and was joined by Gene Riechers, the Vice Chairman of EverFi, Inc.; Fred Singer, the CEO of Echo360; and Donn Davis, the Co-Founder and President of Revolution, LLC, who moderated the panel.
In part two of our coverage of the “Trends and Controversy in Education Technology” panel, our esteemed panelists discuss why it’s important to let go of dated terms such as “commuter or residential schools,” as well as innovative ways to improve upon student-teacher communication. The panel also discusses student loans, and how universities can better retain students struggling to pay for their education.
We’ll be featuring additional videos from Len Forkas, Ted Leonsis and other exciting panel discussions from the Mid-Atlantic Growth Conference in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
