Launched in summer 2013, The Fund’s Innovative Educator Network (The Network) unites high-performing educators willing to re-think the way they use talent, technology and time to transform student learning citywide.
The inaugural Summer Design Program exposed participants to the most innovative approaches nationwide, guided them through a hands-on design process and connected them with local and national experts to help refine, implement and evaluate their ideas. At the completion of the Summer Design Program, The Fund awarded implementation grants to the most promising innovations and teams.
While the program has evolved over the years – including our biggest cohort yet this year! – we love this video featuring members of the inaugural cohort. Check it out!
