The School-Hive Connection is dedicated to providing teachers quality opportunities to build their skills. We do this through our professional development calendar, by making connections for educators to Hive organizations, and creating community among educators. Hive teacher PD events often involve web literacy and technology, but they also cover topics ranging from diversity to increasing reading proficiency. Our goal is to increase Connected Learning experiences for Chicago’s youth, engaging the web to imagine 21st Century learning in our city.

Teachers @ Hive Chicago has grown from community conversations and the dedication of Hive organizations to transform the learning landscape by empowering youth and educators to enact Connected Learning through a diverse network of civic and cultural institutions.
