Kickstarting Innovation for ELL and SPED Students

Addressing an area where the education reform movement has paid too little attention was a poignant conversation around innovating to serve students with special needs, including English language learners. Featured entrepreneurs included Daniel Yoo from Goalbook, which helps connect educators connected to a single special needs student; Teddy Rice from Ellevation, which is developing tools for ELL teachers; and Jack Lynch from Presence Learning, which uses technology to connect speech therapists to students around the country. This group discussed the achievement gaps faced by special needs students and how important innovations can better serve them.
