Each month, the Chicago Learning Exchange convenes a professional learning community of dynamic educators and youth development professionals (also known as Hive Chicago) who believe in the promise of connected learning. Together, they are working to transform the educational experiences of digital-age youth and cultivate an ecosystem—fueled by technology and open innovation—that produces independent, lifelong learners.

Rain or shine, the Chicago Learning Exchange invites you to connect, share, and learn with fellow educators and youth-serving professionals at the April Meetup. This Thursday's meetup will feature Darryl Holliday of City Bureau, who will introduce City Bureau's Documenters program. Attendees will explore ways to engage youth as civic actors, creators, and collaborators through the Documenters.org platform.
