ED Games Expo: September 21, 2023

The Institute of Education Sciences’ ED Games Expo is returning to the REACH at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, on September 20 and 21 with a new series of IES-funded educational innovations. Come see demos of exciting new EdTech games and programs, attend sessions to learn more about the latest in the evolving field, or build connections with developers and collaborators. The Expo is free to attend and will have something for a broad audience including students, parents, researchers, and educators.

The LEARN Network will host a panel on scaling educational products at the IES Innovation Day on September 21 from 10:30 to 11:30 AM (@ The REACH, Studio K). This panel will feature speakers who have successfully scaled educational innovations and who bring different perspectives about transitioning products to the market. Join us for the panel to learn more about pathways to scaling up evidence-based products, the issues that need to be considered along the way, and the research approaches that can be used as part of a strategy for preparing a product for scaling.

Then, meet our team at the Expo office hours from 4:00 to 6:00 PM (@ The REACH, Level B)!

More information about the Expo including how to register and attend is on this page. We hope to see you there!
