Think Big is a sandbox for innovation. We love to foster it, to showcase it, to encourage it; and innovation in education is very, very close to our hearts. It is no secret that, through the years, Think Big Coworking has housed, hosted and helped numerous education innovation initiatives through our event space, resources, workspace and the awesome collaborative environment our community has created here. We are proud that LRNG KC calls Think Big Coworking home and to have had the privilege of hosting LRNG KC’s first Playlist Design Challenge, a competition that brought together 16 different ideas to improve education and children’s lives throughout Kansas City. The LRNG KC Playlist Design Challenge was open to ideas that combined different elements to form a pathway for students to move, educationally speaking, from point A to the future, and that’s what they call a playlist. Like a playlist, they combine different elements with a common theme and objective. LRNG will facilitate the discoverability and wider accessibility of these initiatives by hosting them on their site.
Check out the video of the competition, and mark your calendars for November 16th, they are doing it all over again. If you or your organization have a playlist you would like to bring to the event, you should submit an application at http://www.kcsocialinnovation.org/lrng
The top (10) playlists will be eligible to pitch at Playlist Pitch Night #2 set for Wednesday, November 16th, 5:30 – 7:30pm at Think Big. The event is open to the public. So come cheer on KC’s pioneering education innovators!
