About Hive Learning Communities

Hive Learning Communities use the connected learning principles and the practices of Hive to operationalize a learning network. They draw heavily from the experience of existing Hive Learning Networks whose leaders function as consultants and mentors sharing information about structure, program design and strategy. Local facilitators adapt tools, practices, frameworks to their local contexts.

The Hive concept has developed into a grassroots movement with Hive Learning Communities forming around the globe. Current examples include Hive India, Hive Kansas City, Hive Berlin, and others. Learn more about the three tiers of hive.

About the Gigabit Community Fund

The Gigabit Community Fund Fund, supported by the National Science Foundation and part of the broader US Ignite initiative, invests in organizations and projects that utilize gigabit technology to serve educational systems, support educators in and out of the classroom, and impact student learning. Projects supported by the Fund will build and pilot gigabit-enabled applications and associated curricula that have immediate, measurable impact on classrooms and informal learning organizations in Chattanooga and Kansas City. Through these pilot projects, Chattanooga and Kansas City will become living laboratories in which to study how these next-generation networks can impact education and workforce development.
