Personalized Learning



We are EdSurge

Our Story

Teacher, techies, storyteller. EdSurge was started in 2011 by Betsy Corcoran, Matt Bowman, Nick Punt and Agustin Vilaseca to connect the emerging community of edtech entrepreneurs and educators. We share detailed information about what emerging technologies can–and cannot–do to support learning among students in grades K-12 and in higher ed. We report on latest news and trends in the edtech industry to help educators using technology to support teaching and learning; entrepreneurs building edtech products; investors, policy makers and others involved with education.

Along with sharing news, trends and research, we connect people through our jobs board and through networking events, including virtual and live workshops and conferences. Our database of rich information about emerging products, both in K12 and higher ed, continues to be the go-to source for the industry.

With the right tools, technology can transform “learning” from something we did in classrooms at fixed hours of the day to something we can do anywhere, anytime.

EdSurge delivers insights and connects those exploring how technology can support equitable opportunities for all learners.

What attendees are saying

Attending Fusion with a colleague allowed me to have conversations that were meaningful about how we could apply ideas from Fusion in our district.

Emily Garrison, Palo Alto Unified School District

I liked the spirit of working with others and having common problem of practice. I left with clear, tangible next steps which was really helpful for me.

Fusion made me feel hopeful that there are people across the nation who are realizing that we need to make big changes in our educational systems — there are thought leaders and school leaders who are on the same page with engaging in rich discussions about how to make learning more meaningful for our students.

Chip Chase, Director of Library Services and Technology Integration, Capital City PCS

No one has anything figured out. It's great to have a community come together and have conversations. Working through problems with people, having a little consultancy group or advisory board — you don't get that from other conferences. You don’t often get the opportunity to voice your opinion.

Kami Thordarson, Campbell Union School District

Steve Myrthil, (Formerly Director of Digital Learning and IT Support at Achievement First) BrainPOP

The personalized learning approach was excellent at the EdSurge conference. Customization was great, drilling down on what you specifically want to learn. You'll also be inspired by those you meet. The people and the things they are doing are phenomenal!

Joel Shimoji, Vice Principal, J.H. Bruns Collegiate, Manitoba, Canada
