The goal of the forum is to advance the discussion around the pressing issues at the crossroads of education and technology. Future Trends Forum featured weekly online video chat conversations where practitioners in the field shared their most recent experiences in technology and education.
Bryan Alexander promotes the event with a weekly blog post highlighting the current week's special guest. In addition, the guest hosts promoted the event through personal email blasts and social media.
Each subsequent event in the series has increased in attendance, as participants look forward to enlivening weekly discussion with Bryan and his guests. The final 20 minutes of each session concludes with attendees being given the opportunity to pose their own questions by taking the stage via video chat thanks to Shindig's Raise Hand feature.
