The Learning Innovation Hub (iHub) connects Education Technology (EdTech) entrepreneurs, educators, and researchers to facilitate collaboration and product feedback for optimal decisions to integrate technology tools and solutions for our classrooms.

Our work includes connecting EdTech with Silicon Valley classrooms through iHub pilot programs for evaluation. Student and teacher feedback allows these entrepreneurs to further improve their products as they best fit teaching and learning needs.

This work is highlighted in our Pitch Games event. This annual event allows innovative EdTech startups to pitch their products to the education community. A panel composed of Silicon Valley business and education leaders selects the most promising companies to “match and connect” with the iHub network of educators.
