FETC 2019 Presenter Preview: Adam Bellow

Getting to know the presenters at FETC® 19

As we enter the month of FETC 2019, we are continuing our series of interviews with conference presenters. Many of the edtech leaders we spoke with prior last year’s conference are presenting once again at 2019’s premier edtech event, so now is a fantastic time to catch up on those conversations.

Next up in the series is Adam Bellow, who will once again be part of the TechSHARE LIVE! Keynote and will also present three additional sessions. As Co-Founder of Breakout EDU, an immersive gaming platform, Adam has focused his efforts on infusing technology into school reformation. He sees edtech as an organically driven, ground-up effort managed by classroom teachers who latch onto learning tools and make them work. As Adam states, “We don’t need another flashier, sexier clone.” Teachers need something unique and from the heart to solve the real challenges they are facing.

Join us as we revisit Adam’s interview with Dr. Rod Berger and read below to get a preview of the sessions he will be presenting at FETC 2019 in Orlando. Watch here.
