Wrapping up 2022: The year in review
— Dec 22, 2022
It's hard to believe that winter is here, and the new year is just around the corner. It feels like yesterday that the ShapingEDU Community was dreaming up ways to help learners and educators around the world.
Those dreams transformed into Calls to Action, Action Team Projects, and an abundance of outputs. Let's reflect on some of the exemplary work and moments of our ShapingEDU Community, shall we?
ShapingEDU milestones from this year
Virtual events to serve as catalysts for our work
We hosted events that advanced key initiatives in lifelong learning, like
- Pente Pitch Challenge,
- Global Virtual Summer Camp,
- and the Arizona Digital Inclusion Celebration Summit.
Global storytelling that captured education's evolving "new now"
The Are We There Yet? Project Team collaborated with students, educators, technologists and more from Canada, the United States, South Africa and beyond to create a video series telling honest stories of learnings from the pandemic. Watch all their interviews.
Changemakers who are advancing innovation in their community
Community Member Lisa Gustinelli expanded broadband access in Florida with support from the Federal Communications Commission.
