Edtech is booming at the moment. With an increasing number of startups and established brands alike, EdTech is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. With that in mind, you can expect to see more EdTech events crop up all over the world in the coming years.
In this post, we take a look at some of the most anticipated events set to take place in the next couple of years. From EdTech conferences to hackathons, these events will hopefully inspire you to get your own event started.
If you’re a conference junkie, then you’ll be excited to know there are a ton of EdTech conferences on the horizon in the next few years. From the massive EdTech conference and EdTech Summit to the smaller EdTech conferences, these events are a great way to connect with other EdTech professionals and investors. There’s also an increasing number of EdTech investors, who are hosting conferences to connect with the ecosystem.
As conferences become more popular, expect to see them popping up all over the world. Expect to see both traditional conferences, like an investment conference, as well as meetups. Whether you prefer a more informal format, like an unconference, or a more structured format, such as an investment conference, there are tons of options available.
As education becomes more and more digital, the application of new technologies in the classroom is only going to increase. What are some of the best hackathons taking place in the next few years? Well, most hackathons have a focus on specific technologies, like AI or blockchain. However, many hackathons have also expanded their focus to include themes, such as environmental issues or diversity in education.
One hackathon that you can expect to see more of in the coming years is the EdTech Hackathon. Hosted by the EdTech Foundation and EDUCAUSE every summer, it’s a great hub for education technology to come together and solve problems. If you’re interested in tackling problems related to the way education technology is used in different classrooms, this is a great opportunity to do so.
Meetups are a great way for you to connect with local EdTech professionals and investors. While many meetups are focused on specific industries, many are open to anyone who is interested in the field of education. If you’re only interested in connecting with investors, or people working in education, you can also find meetups specific to your interests. Many meetups are also open to non-tech people, so make sure you keep an eye out for those.

However, make sure you’re looking for a course, which is focused on your area of interest.
