July 16 - August 3, 2018

Educators leave indelible marks every day.

We’re looking for education innovators to join
HEARD’s 2018 Digital Summer Think Tank and help shape 21st century community from the ground up.

We'll discuss the role technology can play in helping to foster community building in schools, the term “microdemocracy” and teachers’ role within it, and how HEARD can better serve teachers and families.

The time commitment would be ~ 3 hours over the course of three weeks (July 16-Aug. 3). But the impact will be felt by HEARD users far and wide. Participation takes place all online and around your summer schedule. 

As a Think Tank participant, you can...
