I couldn't be more proud of the exceptional graduate students at Iowa State University. Together, we entered the ISU Innovation Prize, a Shark Tank-style weekend of brainstorming, late nights, and a final pitch to investors.
We were awarded 1st place in the Ed Tech category for our next-generation idea on using Google Glass to help educators and administrators make a real impact on high school student drop out rates.
Did you know that over 2 million US high school students drop out each year? That dropping out not only impacts the student, but also the US economy and taxes? We have the technology to help solve this problem, but there are no educational application that target instant, real-time data collection and analysis for teachers and administrators.
