Details

In the summer of 2013, we launched Noble Impact with the purpose of engaging students by introducing them to entrepreneurial challenges. We’ve now worked with more than 1,000 students through in-class and extracurricular programs and want to share what we’ve learned, while also engaging educators around the topic of rewiring education for purpose and relevance.
The Summit kicks off on Wednesday, July 27th, with #NobleTalks, a curated series of talks given by national innovators about inspiring educational moments and achievements. The second day will be focused around a team-based Civic Innovation Challenge, where teachers and community members will collaborate to tackle problems and propose solutions for key education issues. On the third and final day of the Summit, teachers will take a deep dive into interactive sessions focused on classroom culture, apprenticeships, digital tools, entrepreneurship education, and facilitation methods.
The Summit will be unlike any other professional development you’ve experienced. Teachers will be presented with opportunities to connect with local business leaders and entrepreneurs, visit Noble Impact’s Innovation Studio, and attend student presentations that result from the Noble Impact classroom experience. Our aim with the Noble Impact Educators Summit is to amplify teacher voice while providing tools to help students reach their full potential.
