Yesterday, the Women’s Economic Alliance (WEA), with support from Alchemy Learning Co-Founders Henry Blue and Win Smith, hosted the first in a series of technology panel discussions for leadership of Baltimore Archdiocese-affiliated schools. The panel discussion series, which take place at Loyola University, aims to provide insight and inspiration into technology-grounded possibilities for schools, including organization-supporting software systems, physical technology integration, and learning-supporting software.
Jean Halle, chair of WEA’s Corporates and Foundations Sub-Committee and President and COO of Baltimore County-based Curiosityville stated, “We are excited about collaborating on a technology vision for our schools that will unleash their passion and transform their communities. We invite those who share our interest to join us on November 5 for our showcase luncheon. Details at weabalt.org.”
