KCedu and the Lean Lab partner up at EduHub, a co-working space for education and youth-related startups. Network with genius educators, business partners, and other interested folks as you eat and drink, learn and collide.
When you arrive, grab a snack and check out the whiteboard where participants create the schedule on the fly! Want to share something? Want to get feedback from others on a topic? In addition to the featured guests, as an attendee, you can throw your idea up in one of the squares for small group breakout conversations. For example:
- Want to talk about technology in education, apps, gamificatoin or how to make it relevant to kids?
- Want to talk family-community engagement in schools and in KC?
- Want to plan a city-wide project to bring KC together, led by kids
- Looking for some interested parties to co-write a grant. EdHub has several offices for us to spread out and share/discuss.
After introductions of any featured guests at 6pm, we go into an Edcamp/Unconference format in two fast-paced, 20 minute breakout sessions. Stay in one group or sample more than one discussion. We come back together as a group at 7:00 for final announcements and then continue conversations at EduHub or at a nearby establishment.
This format is about active small group networking and relationship building, not passive listening. CHOICE and VOICE! You'll be happy you plugged into KC's vibrant educator network.
