What does it take to connect learning across Pittsburgh?

On Thursday, June 18 from noon-1:00pm PT (3:00pm-4:00pm ET), host Tim Cook, from The Sprout Fund, talked with representatives from Pittsburgh City of Learning partner organizations – James Doyle and Jennifer Herr from Pittsburgh Public Schools, Kelly Rottmund from the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, and Markese Long from the Three Rivers Workforce Investment Board.

Pittsburgh City of Learning has brought together a diverse set of partners to provide more young people with greater access to learning opportunities happening in their neighborhoods, and across the city. But how can these opportunities be linked together so that learners stay engaged and can level up their learning in future programs? This webinar focused on the early steps Pittsburgh City of Learning partners are taking to create personalized learning pathways for young people.

Our guest speakers addressed questions via the Hangout “Q&A” feature or on Twitter.

This webinar was part of a June 2015 series titled Spotlight on Cities of Learning, in which COL cities described their work to engage youth over the summer.

Cities of Learning is a national effort to remake learning into an exciting enterprise that prepares all young people for the world they live in today and will work in tomorrow by bringing together all of a city’s resources. Cities of Learning offers a variety of free and affordable in-person and online learning opportunities where young people can earn digital badges to showcase their learning achievements.
