Earlier this month FEV Tutor's Vice President and Co-Founder, Ryan Patenaude, sat down with Melissa Emler for an interview featured on Elmer's podcast, On the Vendor Floor.
Emler, the Director of Innovation at a regional education service agency in Wisconsin servicing 31 districts in the region, created On the Vendor Floor after attending ISTE 2015 and being overwhelmed by the sheer number of vendors in the Exhibit hall. According to Emler, "There were so many people, and I had a hard time engaging in meaningful conversations in that space." She went on to produce On the Vendor Floor as a way to connect entrepreneurs with educators across the country to enhance learning. And since educators can listen on their own time, it provides them the opportunity to sit-in on more meaningful conversations about innovative EdTech companies, products, and solutions available to support their learners.
