The LRNG Innovation Challenge

Educator Innovator is a growing community of educators, partners and supporters focused around the Connected Learning principles. They believe that if we want to educate a generation of young people to be innovators — to create, build, design, and use their talents to improve their world — we need to value the creative capacity in the mentors and teachers who support them.
In partnership with LRNG, John Legend’s Show Me Campaign, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, in 2014 Educator Innovator invested in teams of teachers working to expand the time and space students have to create, explore, and follow their interests and passions. The LRNG Innovation Challenge has awarded grants to teams of educators working to solve the challenges of expanding time and space for creative learning in their own context, and willing to share their solutions and lessons learned with others.
