Welcome to the Brighton EdTech Meetup! This regular meetup is for educators and businesses with an interest in all things EdTech and the future of learning. Usually on the second Wednesday of the month we will be moving to the Fri for a summer social!
We will be having an informal networking and social gathering to play free arcade machines and board games in the sun at Loading Bar, next to Brighton Pier. Kicking off at 4pm and carrying on into the evening this will be a chance to chat with like minded people who are interested in all things EdTech.
