Our annual Education Innovation Cluster convenings bring together leaders in the edtech, research, education, philanthropic, investment, and policy communities. Participants have the opportunity to forge connections among regions, share best practices, develop resources, and set the agenda for new initiatives.
Although the work of EdClusters is rooted in local people and organizations, convenings allow individual regions to increase their knowledge, build relationships with other education innovators, and work face-to-face on complex challenges facing EdClusters across the nation. When our national network comes together to collaborate and share lessons learned, individual EdClusters can build on others’ research and experience to further accelerate innovation in their own regions.
Every year since 2014, Digital Promise has hosted a convening in partnership with one regional EdCluster. This gives our host EdCluster a chance to spotlight work happening in their region in real time while visiting EdClusters can witness innovation first-hand.
