Hive Research Lab at the AERA 2014 Annual Meeting

AERA2014Hive Research Lab will be heading to Philly this week for the American Educational Research Association’s 2014  Annual Meeting.

We’re very excited to ‘debut’ our work on Youth Trajectories and Networked Innovation to the educational research community (and for some reason, despite the hundreds of presentation slots, we ended up getting triple-booked on Friday!)

The theme of the meeting this year is “The Power of Education Research for Innovation in Practice and Policy.” Check out the official meeting page, which also includes an online and printable program.

Hive Research Lab at the 2014 Digital Media and Learning Conference

Along with many of our colleagues from Hive NYC and many other Hive networks across the country, Hive Research Lab will be heading to Boston next week for the annual Digital Media and Learning conference. As many readers might be already be aware, the Hive Learning Network initiative emerged from the broader field of digital media and learning, building on the work of many pioneers in this space and centering its pedagogical commitments around Connected Learning, a research and design framework associated with this community. So, no surprise that Hive networks have a strong presence.

For those attending that want to check out the places where Hive Research Lab will be speaking, we wanted to share a round-up below:

If you’ll be going to the conference and would like to connect, keep an eye out and say hi!
