New blog mini-series: NLI goes to the Harvard Graduate School of Education

I’m packing my bags, and this Sunday, I’m getting on a plane to move from San Francisco, CA to Cambridge, MA to get my master’s degree in education at Harvard Graduate School of Education as part of the Technology, Innovation, and Education program. I’m not leaving the New Learning Institute behind, though—I’m taking the NLI along with me. Starting the first week of September, I’ll be blogging about the concepts, people, theories, and policies from my program of study as they apply to New Learning. Get an inside line to how one of the nation’s top education schools explores transforming practice, research, and policy through innovating where and how we teach and learn.
