Last week, uConnect founder David Kozhuk was asked to take part in a panel on education technology at Southern New Hampshire University's (SNHU) Sandbox ColLABorative. The panel brought together regional entrepreneurs and thoughtleaders working to impact how students, educators, and administrators utilize technology to improve outcomes.

Moderated by LearnLaunch co-founder and partner, and huge uConnect influencer Jean Hammond, the panel explored the education technology eco-system at large, the overarching need for education technology in both K-12 and colleges and universities, and how four New England area businesses (Awato, Pulse, EDACTS, and uConnect were present) are aiming to solve some big challenges.
A primary panel takeaway was how career services delivery models are rapidly evolving to better serve students. Some schools are integrating career services into enrollment, advising and advancement to make it a bigger part of the entire student journey, and are more open to leveraging all kinds of technology to help them do so.
