Factory Berlin Görlitzer Park
5th Floor, Cinema

COVID-19 made online education mainstream - so, what did we learn along the way?

Because of the pandemic, the adoption of EdTech boomed – but has education gotten better as a result? Has the industry lived up to its promise?

During this panel discussion, the Factory Berlin Edtech Circle investigates:

  • How has the pandemic changed the way that we learn and teach?
  • What have been the biggest challenges for educators and how have they dealt with them in practice?
  • What fundamental truths have we discovered through our successes and learnings and how do they change our lives in the future?

In just the next three years, the EdTech industry is projected to continue to grow another $112.39 billion - let’s learn from the pandemic boom to chart a path towards the future.

Join us at Factory Görlitzer Park to discuss the digital divide, user privacy, and other big challenges that face the Edtech industry.

Hosted by the EdTech Circle, a sub-community of Factory Berlin.


About the Circles Program

Growing organically from our members’ desire to connect with one another, Circles are self-organized sub-communities at Factory Berlin, gathered around shared interests, industries, and projects, where members exchange ideas, inspire and support each other.

Alongside regular and casual meetings, the community Circles program has evolved to include monthly formal meetups supported by the Factory Berlin Team, where speakers from the wider network are invited to share their experience and expertise.

About the Edtech Circle

The EdTech Circle helps to promote Education and Learning, it provides a platform for all stakeholders in Education to network and discuss challenges, opportunities and learnings. They currently have 200+ members in their slack channel.

Antonios Triantafyllakis is a learning designer, facilitator, and gamification consultant. Passionate about impact, he creates engaging learning opportunities and meaningful games as his day job, then goes on podcasting and volunteering for unconditional basic income and climate activism to leave the world a slightly nicer place than he found it.

He’s been working with NGOs involved in international youth work for over a decade, and with freelance trainers, educators and EdTech startups in the past few years, to make learning fun and effective. As the co-captain of the EdTech Circle in Factory Berlin, his aim is to identify the needs of all Factorians involved in learning and development, and work with them towards a better future in learning!
