The Shared Learning Collaborative (SLC) is workingto make personalized learning a reality for every U.S. student by improving the integration of education technology – reducing educators’ time spent tracking the progress of students, and making it possible to support teachers in their craft by recommending individualized learning resources for their students.
The SLC is coming to Denver November 17-18 for an all-hands SLC Camp and Codeathon. We need teachers and developers to work together in creating new applications for teaching and learning, and to identify quality online content for the classroom. Through a fun and stimulating weekend of collaboration we aim to provide participants with a chance to become part of a growing community of practitioners who are preparing for the national launch of SLC in early 2013. At the end of the event we will also be awarding two $2,000 prizes for best application prototypes as well as three $300 prizes for the best application concepts.
Please bring along your laptop for this pioneering event. Show up with a passion to revolutionize education, and we’ll connect you with the people to make it happen! Please note, we will have food available both Saturday and Sunday for you.
