Panel: Learning Everywhere

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel brings together representatives of four unique educational programs, MIT ReACT, Mountain Heights Academy, the Davidson Academy, and Public Library Innovation Exchange.  Each of these programs reaches learners where they are in their lives, geographically, developmentally, and in the context of their lived experience. This discussion will highlight the techniques, pedagogies, and technologies used to bring education to learners rather than the traditional approach of bringing learners to educational experiences.
