2015 LRNG Innovators Challenge – Connecting In and Out-of-School Learning

In its second year, LRNG Innovators challenged teachers themselves to reach beyond the schoolhouse door to develop partnerships and programs that connect in-school and out-of-school learning and create opportunities for young people to follow their interests and do ambitious work. LRNG Innovators invested in teams of teachers committed to exploring how learning experiences can move fluidly and coherently across the spheres of formal and informal learning.

National Writing Project

The National Writing Project (NWP), the founder of the Educator Innovator Initiative, is a network of educators and dedicated practitioners working together to improve practice with an eye toward young people as producers. The NWP envisions a future where every person is an accomplished writer and maker, not just a passive consumer.
