“Our intent is to host innovation, and start conversations that help bridge the gap between what educators need and what innovation has to offer,” said Eric Hamby, a principal scientist at Xerox. “Our researchers, working alongside teachers, have developed rich insights into how technology can be woven into the everyday fabric of the classroom.”
The company also will unveil plans for the Xerox Education Center of Excellence, which will provide thought leadership, stemming from Xerox’s long-running support of STEM education; research and development efforts and its expertise in simplifying workflows for customers – including those in education.
