Education Innovation Clusters

Education Innovation Clusters (EdClusters) are local communities of practice that bring together educators, entrepreneurs, funders, researchers, and other community stakeholders (families, local government, non-profits) to support innovative teaching and learning in their region. By working together, these partners form a network that is uniquely positioned to design, launch, iterate on, and disseminate breakthrough learning practices and tools.

In partnership with the U.S. Department of Education, Digital Promise is working to catalyze, support, and scale individual EdClusters, stand up a national network of these regional ecosystems, and continue convening stakeholders to share best practices. We believe that as EdClusters evolve, they will have an unprecedented opportunity to accelerate the pace of evidence-rich innovation, close the Digital Learning Gap, and improve learning for all students.
