CLX Community Meetup| January 2020

  • 01.16.2020 – 11:00pm
  • Conaway Center at Columbia College
  • Chicago, 60604

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.

Each Meetup features hands-on workshops, presentations, and dedicated time and space to meet with like-minded professionals working to close our city's opportunity gap.

The January 16th Meetup will allow the community to have an opportunity to participate in a lively dialogue with our special guest from the City of Chicago's Mayoral Office, and will focus on designing experiences that allow youth interests to ignite their motivation to learn.
