This Tuesday October 9th, Noodle is honored to participate in the Education Datapalooza, hosted by the White House and the U.S. Department of Education.
This event will highlight innovators and entrepreneurs in the ed tech field who are using freely available data to build products, services, and apps with the potential to advance educational achievement.
Noodle is particularly excited for this event, as we're getting ready to launch a brand new initiative at this year's Datapalooza! Keep an eye out in your inbox next week as we tell you all about our new tool in our weekly newsletter.
Special guests at this year's event include U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, U.S. Chief Technology Officer Todd Park, Under Secretary of Education for the U.S. Department of Education Martha Kanter and Assistant Deputy Secretary for Innovation and Improvement at the U.S. Department of Education Jim Shelton.
Datapalooza is a follow-up event to this year's Data Jam, which was held in Washington D.C. in June to kick off project development with developers working in education open data. Datapalooza will allow some of the companies who attended Data Jam to present and demo their tools to an audience at the White House.
If you have to miss the action in person, Datapalooza will be streaming live and will be available to watch online following the event.
And in case you haven't noticed, here at Noodle we're all about big data right now (it's very "in" this season.)
We recently submitted a panel to SXSWedu called, "Is Student Data Education's Next Frontier," focusing on the use of student data to transform the education system and improve students' success in the classroom.
Public votes count for 30% of the selection process, so we need your help to get to Austin for SXSWedu! Just go to SXSWedu's panel picker, register, and vote for our panel with one click of a button.
Better be quick - voting ends this Friday at 11:59pm CST!
