Our final Hot Lunch speaker for the 2016-17 season will be Connie Yowell, CEO at LRNG by Collective Shift. We have been following the evolution of LRNG from its early years in Chicago as a pilot program testing the concept of providing learners with digital badges for summer learning experiences. LRNG is now a multi-city effort, with a variety of community-based partners, that values the importance of accessing and capturing learning that occurs in a variety of places. The LRNG technology platform connects learners to opportunities and organizes and holds the learning and badges that students receive—and their focus is no longer solely on summer.
Watch this video from LRNG to learn more and join us for Hot Lunch on May 12th to hear from Connie in person.
