The i.Lab at UVA
We invited students (k-college), entrepreneurs, educators, administrators, innovators to connect education innovators & create opportunities to learn from one another, to present and showcase education innovation projects, and to rally around common goals for the future of education in our community.
After we introduced ourselves, we held pop-up talks hosted by different members of the community on subjects like student-faculty partnerships in course design and student voice. Then we held a design workshop to create an ideal educational summer camp, generating four amazing and well designed camps. At the end of the event we thanked Chance Dickerson and Bernard Hankins for their amazing work at the A3 House at Albemarle High School and the A3 House Showcase with a small gift card. We also offered small prototyping funds to Fang Yi and Moises Mendoza for their education innovation projects.
In total, over 30 community members, students, teachers, and innovators came to the ReinventED Community Convening to help create change in education.
