* On Wednesday, September 21, attendees will have the opportunity to visit Rhode Island classrooms to see blended and personalized learning at work. This has been a focus of the Highlander Institute and EduvateRI cluster.

** Immediately following EdClusters16 we will be hosting a Startup Weekend Education (SWEDU) in Providence, and you’re invited to join us! SWEDUs are action-oriented weekends designed to take an education idea to startup in just 54 hours. Educators, business professionals, and hackers conceptualize and build viable products, services, and school models that solve education’s most pressing problems. We’d love for you to stay through the weekend and join us as a participant, mentor, or judge for SWEDU Providence!
