Based in Boston, a world education hub, LearnLaunch is dedicated to connecting, supporting, and growing the education technology ecosystem to drive innovation and transform learning. LearnLaunch is a vibrant community, delivering educational events, a selective accelerator program, and a collaborative co-working space. Rocky Hill School students and faculty have opportunities to collaborate with the LearnLaunch team, intern with start-up companies on-site, and help shape the next generation of classroom software. In addition, and perhaps most importantly, our partnership engages students in the process of entrepreneurism and innovation, building within them the skills and mindset they will need to create change and impact the world.
Reflections from our educators:
“They are authentic, enthusiastic, and positive people--just the kind of people we want to work with and have our students learn from. I am blown away by the professionalism, out of the box thinking, and true student-centered approach on display here. A great learning experience for all of us.”
- Tara Dowling, Director of College Counseling
“LearnLaunch embodies innovation, and having them on our campus, interacting with teachers and learners, only serves to strengthen the challenge of being innovative and creative thinkers. Affording children the opportunity to engage with innovators and hear their creative process is invaluable.”
- Charlie Laurent, Fourth Grade Teacher
“I think LL is extremely inspiring, both personally and professionally. Having access to these innovators is essential for them and for us. It provides us, as educators, different ways to help our students access our curriculum and for students, it introduces them to people who have made an idea to come to life. Being able to use the product with actual students and see how they learn in real time with the innovator present has made for a more organic conversation about the product and also allowed for immediate troubleshooting and feedback.”
- Caity MacDonald, Fifth Grade Teacher
