The Convergence group has now officially released its vision and website: www.education-reimagined.org. The site includes profiles of 10 pioneer organizations, including Iowa BIG. The group, dedicated to the realization of learner-centered education, shares best practices and programs and serves as a model for others. Convergence is a national non-profit that convenes people and groups with differing views to identify solutions and form alliances.
“We are proud that Convergence selected Iowa BIG as one of its pioneers,” noted Dr. Trace Pickering, Associate Superintendent. “The pioneers are examples across the country of what their vision looks like in practice. Iowa BIG is not only helping to lead the way but we also benefit by learning from the other fantastic pioneers in the Convergence group.”
