Trending: Seattle shooting rattles tech companies and raises concerns about safety of city’s urban core

It seems like we’ve moved to the Midwest or East Coast with Seattle weather lately.

And days like these make us think about how technology can help kids continue to learn when they’re outside the classroom.

An upcoming weekend hack event will focus on improving education using technology. Hack the Now and Next: Education of the Future takes place Feb. 22 and Feb. 23 in Seattle.

“Discover how developments like voice, AI, ML, and AR/VR will forever change the way we learn and teach information,” according to a description from the event site.
