Insight Education Group (Insight) is one of 30 companies chosen to present at the EdSurge Tech for Schools Summit on November 2 in Silicon Valley. Insight will unveil an unprecedented platform that provides meaningful feedback to classroom teachers through video-based observations, coaching and evaluations.

The event is designed to bring local educators and innovative ed tech entrepreneurs together, and provide opportunities for teachers to explore new products and to ask the tough questions of the entrepreneurs.

The event was announced after the overwhelming success of the first Tech for Schools Summit that was held in Rhode Island earlier in October. The 30 companies that will participate at the Summit were subjected to a rigorous judging period, chosen by a panel of five independent judges from over 100 applicants. Insight’s CEO, Dr. Michael Moody, comments, “We are honored to be chosen by EdSurge to be a part of their Second Tech for Schools Summit. EdSurge has become synonymous with innovation and forward-thinking.”

He continues, “We’re looking forward to the opportunity to share and get feedback from teachers on our ground-breaking solution that provides teachers with meaningful feedback that is timely, content- and grade-specific and actionable. We firmly believe the instead of creating a product that we hope will be useful to educators, we’re asking for honest input from them in every step of the development process.”

Insight, a California-based company, has made a name for itself in the education space for their work creating custom evaluation frameworks and connecting them with the Common Core. In their continued support of educators’ efforts in implementing the Common Core, Insight released its award-winning, cloud-based solution, myCore, to provide educators with a platform to guide and coach them through designing Common Core-aligned units and lessons.

The Tech for Schools Summit is a free, invite-only event open only to educators in Silicon Valley and Bay Area. EdSurge is co-hosting the event with NewSchools Venture Fund, Silicon Valley Education Foundation, and the Santa Clara County Office of Education.
