We're very excited to take part in Startup Weekend Edu in New York this weekend. The event is being dubbed a MEGA Edu event, featuring two tracks - edtech and the very first Startup Weekend Teen!
Welcome to the blog's Tech category.
At Pearson, we have a simple mission: to help people make more of their lives through learning. Our technology is a vital piece in enabling deep, educational experiences. And as the world’s leading learning company, but we take it upon ourselves to be Always Learning. Our industry and technologies are changing fast, and Pearson strives to move ahead quickly.
This has been a very special year, and we wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of you for hanging out with us at events, registering for API keys, spreading the word, and for supporting us in general. We celebrated our second anniversary in September, and can’t wait to share our plans for year 3.
Later this month we will be teaming up with General Assembly for a two day hackathon at their London campus. Join Pearson and sponsors from Leap Motion, Kano, Wikitude, and Mashery.
