48 Hours to Bridge the Gap
October 17-19, 2013
Minnesota has the nation’s worst on-time graduation rates for Latino and American Indian students and is among the worst for black and Asian students. What can you do to close this achievement gap? Participate in EdJam and you can be part of the solution now.
EdJam will be a gathering of people who want to take immediate action to improve K-12 public education by addressing the gap in new and creative ways. Like a Hackathon or Service Jam, EdJam will be a fun and enriching 48-hour event where we will work in teams of teachers, non-profit leaders, school board members, parents, students designers, and developers to turn ideas into action. By employing design thinking to develop working prototypes, we will take meaningful steps to create equal access to education for all students.
From October 17-19, like minds will come together to jam on how the achievement gap can be bridged here in the Twin Cities and beyond. Be a part of envisioning and creating what is possible in the future of education for all students.
This isn’t about talking; it’s about DOING!
