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 November Meetup will focus on curating pathways and how CLX created the Illuminating Pathways Model, which houses Energizing Opportunities.
