We Think Big knows that the future of education will involve us all. Educators, students, administrators, early career and retired professionals, parents, community leaders and other key stakeholders work together to shape a shared vision for educational innovation in the region.
Special projects like the renowned Startup Weekend for Education, Edsurge Tech Leaders Circle, and local gatherings created strong communities of practice for the region.
In 2016, WeThinkBig spearheaded bringing the first-ever Startup Weekend for Education to Wisconsin, attracting over 100 attendees, including 44 registrants, 37 business volunteers, and two dozen innovation supporters together for a 54-hour marathon of team building, education-focused creative problem solving, prototype development and business pitch competition.
Where do educators and education enthusiasts go to meet, network and learn from other educational innovators? WeThinkBig created and hosted TeachersNet – an education-oriented meetup.
