What is a Peer Learning Exchange? Do all awarded schools need to attend?
Yes. An important component of the program is the opportunity for school innovators to get to meet each other, discuss what they are working on, problem solve together and advance each other’s learning. The peer learning exchanges, mandatory for all awardees, will meet four times (5-7:00 PM on Wednesday evenings including Oct 17 and Nov 14; other dates TBD) and may also include guest speakers with content expertise. Schools should send between 2 and 5 representatives from their schools who are central to project implementation, and who can attend all peer exchanges (barring extenuating circumstances). Appetizers and beverages will be served.
