Unique Opportunity on June 30 in Washington, D.C. – Transforming the Learning Ecosystem

Published:

Join us at Transforming the Learning Ecosystem, a one-day event, in collaboration with Grantmakers for Education and their Out-of-School Time Funder Network. As avenues for learning expand, it is essential that we reach outside the traditional learning paradigm to meet the needs and expectations of tomorrow’s students. Since 2005, KnowledgeWorks has studied the trends shaping our world and helped education leaders plan for the future of learning.
