Our 2015 Presenting Sponsors



HIve Chicago
Hive Chicago leverages the power of a collective action network to identify and solve the complex issues facing widespread adoption of Connected Learning for young people in our city. The Hive Chicago Mission is to transform the learning landscape by empowering youth and educators to enact Connected Learning through a diverse network of civic and cultural institutions. The vision is that Chicago is a connected community where all learning counts and where the unbounded interests of youth are activated in a network of opportunities to grow and learn

Chicago City of Learning (CCOL) is a citywide, year-round effort that turns Chicago into a campus by bringing together the city’s endless opportunities to learn new skills, discover passions and build pathways to further education and careers. Digital badges offered through CCOL recognize learning across programs  – whether at a park, museum, library or online course – giving learners a digital portfolio that communicates the skills they have developed. CCOL is led by the City of Chicago and Digital Youth Network at DePaul University, and it is supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Best Buy and Comcast.
