Hive Network: Edu-Innovation Spread & Scale


Hive Learning Networks in Chicago, NYC, Pittsburgh and Toronto amplify the collective intelligence of a committed community of educators to meet the biggest challenges and unmet opportunities in their cities to create ecosystems of connected learning for young people. Hive incubates promising solutions, invites the community to collaboratively develop them, then scales and spreads them to make an impact. When solutions spread/scale in ways that improve lives: that’s a revolution
